Project Description

What was your source for this quilting project? Online Photo or Website Name of website or photo Links (by Dereck Lockwood) Link to website or photo www.lockwoodquilts.com/store/bargello_quilts/links.html What are you most proud of? Mainly that I finally finished it. This bargello took me 6 months. When I finished the original pattern design I thought my original color selections were too bland, so I ripped out some portions of the design and expanded the pattern with some hot pink to jazz things up. What advice would you give someone starting this project? This bargello is made with tiny 1.5" wide strips. What a pain. Sure wish I had scaled the pattern up to use 2" strips. It would have been a lot easier. Just giving my honest opinion, that if you want a beautiful bargello for a lot less work, pick any bargello pattern by Becky Botello instead.

Thanks so much. Bargellos are strip pieced and way easier to do than they look.
