What materials did you use? I took 10 different colors of fabric. I pieced them in rows - and used each stripe twice across the pattern. I made the pattern along the way until I was half way through. Then I tried to mirror it - but changed the main color stripe a bit.

What are you most proud of? It is actually only the second time I try to quilt - and I needed something quick. I thought I could handle some flowers and leaves - and I could. I quilted them without drawing any lines. The leaves turned out quite well - considering the little practise I have with quilting.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I you like to get surprised by the result - use this approach - otherwise draw the pattern first. Either way its fun to make.

Nice job on the quilting. Adding the flowers really adds another textural dimension. I like the way the individual flowers and the flowing lines of the bargello pattern add tension and balance at the same time.
