What are you most proud of? I scaled the pattern up to use 2" strips instead of the 1.5" strips specified in the book. The quilt finishes at 61" x 88". This is the fourth bargello I have completed, and the most challenging one yet. I really struggled with the fabric selection to get the desired dimensional affect. I quilted it myself on my domestic sewing machine with a walking foot.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? The piecing is only a little more difficult than in a beginner bargello quilt. Fabric selection is crucial in this quilt.

It is a beautiful quilt. Some years ago I made it also from bright colours ( green, yellow, red and blue), it was very fun to do. Now it is in my friend's house, she love it.
