Panel 1 - Scrap Bargello!



I got the first panel done of my scrap bargello!!!!! And all the pieces of the other 4 panels cut and sewn into pairs! It is looking sooo cool! I almost have the same fabrics in each of the 4 panels, so I think I"m going to sew all 4 panels in the same strip order so I can make the design go all the way across like a bargello quilt. I had grabbed a handful of stash and had exactly enough pieces out of that handful to make a whole bargello with the same fabrics - now is that sad or what! But I think the colors are going to be great on this quilt! Hard part will be to find a good border fabric!

What do you think?

I love it. Love the contrast and the different types of fabrics. Don't worry even if you don't have enough fabric - this is the kind of quilt that it's really easy to switch - makes it look scrappy. How big are those squares (or did you already say?)

Dawn said...

Thanks Sarah and Tonya! It does look fun doesn't it! I was so excited to get one panel done last night I had to stay up past my bedtime to finish it!!! :)

I think the squares finish to 2" square if I'm remembering right.

Wait till Bonnie sees what I'm making with the leftovers! A new strips and strings idea for her! It will be a surprise until I can get a few blocks done!

Hi Dawn, just getting around to getting here. I love what is happening with your scrappy bargello. Bet that stack of fabrics you grabbed hardly made a dent, right?? LOL..aren't stashes wonderful???
