Bargello time

Check out these beautiful fabrics.  There are twenty different ones ranging from a beautiful tone on tone creamy white all the way up to a deep rich blue.  I am going to use them to make my first Bargello quilt using a pattern called Lightening Strikes.  Bargello’s are supposed to be great for beginner quilters because you just use strips sets and cut them up but when you’ve got 20 colours that you have to keep in order…..I think it will require a lot of checking and rechecking before cutting and sewing each strip set together.

I am supposed to be finishing the lady bug inspired quilt for my Chiropractor (as a retirement gift) but I am having  ‘quilters block’ trying to figure out how to free motion quilt a continuous line of ladybugs.    I’m going to take a break and just cut my strips for the Bargello and then come back and try and tackle the ladybugs again.
