Oh, this may be the only Bargello quilt I ever actually complete. I love the Bargello quilts and admire them so. I really wanted to try one. And I did!! Good thing is that Tyler will be getting a nice size quilt instead of a bargello hot pad! I managed to almost complete the blocks this week. I would have completed them if I didn't have to redo 24 strips that were sewn together backwards! But at least I'm making progress. I don't think I'll be doing another. This gives you an idea of what it's going to look like.
I did make a little progress on the Mirage Bargello. But I have to say, there is a part of me that thinks this one may never actually be finished.
While I'm sewing this my mind wanders (which might be why I had to re-do so many strips) and was thinking about the stash. I love seeing pictures of peoples stash when they use the little mini bolts. I looked them up on line and they were just too much for what I have. So I thought what about manila folders folded in half? They should be sturdy enough and most of what I have is less than a half yard. I tried it and was please with the results. Here's a picture of my closet before. Not sure how long it will take but the girls are coming home this weekend, wonder if I can talk them into wrapping fabrics around folders????? Or maybe the Easter Bunny would do it for me???
Don't forget to stop by patchwork times to see what everyone else has on their design wall. Sew darn crafty has some wonderful things that people have worked on all week.
