I went on the Internet searching for a design for another donation quilt for Hands2Help
and ran across a fantastic tutorial video about how to make a simple bargello without all the fuss over yardage, numbering and basicly ..... over thinking everything. Above is my finale,machine quilted and bound which measures 47 1/2" by 49".
I chose fabrics from my stash and even managed to throw in the color "blue" which I don't usually use at all. I couldn't believe how easy it was from watching the video, to choosing the fabrics, which BTW I added an extra fabric right off the bat. I've hardly ever followed, to the letter, a pattern.
This is what I call, one block. I made four block all together.
Here I've sewn the fabrics together then into a tube and then cut accordingly.
Here's a close-up of the fabrics I chose.
The following video was my guide into the world of bargello which I will be visiting again very soon!
