Aurora Borealis Bargello

Project Description

What was your source for this quilting project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Twist and Turn Bargello Book Link to website or photo www.amazon.com/Twist-Bargello-Quilts-Eileen-Wright/dp/1564779432/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1343562827&sr=8-1&keywords=twist+bargello 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.
