I tried to purchase this pattern on line and then they ran out and the owner e-mailed all of her customers and asked if anybody had it and gave them my e-mail address to contact me if they wanted to sell it to me.
Well, low and behole I received a note from a lady quilter in Michigain. She had the pattern and said I could have it. At no cost to me. We have become good friends across the mile on the internet. I made the quilt and sent it to her for a thank you for the pattern. I am in the process of making one for myself. Here is a picture of it. I guess you could use it in Sew and Tell also.
I have been quilting for about 20 years now but just the past 4 years I have really gotten into it. I too enjoy Quilters Club of America and am a Charter member.
can you please try to repost your picture? I am not seeing it. I love bargello quilts!
Helen what a touching story. Not just one but 3 people who care, please try to repost the quilt so we can see it. This is my first time to write on here I'm not very good at this computer but I have quilted since I was young just am not that good at meeting up up seams and such, but quilting is what makes us all who we are.
keep quilting and may God bless
I made these Flag wall hangings from patterns called 'Fractured Flag'. Is this the same as bargello?

When life gives you scraps, Make quilts!!!
Kathy, they're gorgeous! I haven't done anything like this, but you've inspired me to give this pattern a try. Where can I find it?
This is the web address for the Fractured Flag pattern
When I first saw the wallhanging, I fell in love with it. It looked complicated to me, but it really isn't. I opened the pattern was sure that I couldn't do it. Trust me, it is easier than it looks. The instructions are very clear.
These are really great. I so enjoy seeing what everyone is doing. Keep up the great work.
Kathy I have similar pattern but without the pole and background. It is from Little Mountain Designs. I picked it up at the Quilt show at the Rosemont. how is your flag attached to the background? It doesn't appear in the photo to be strips...
Let it Snow!
The pattern is by Cross Mountain Stitchery in Fredericksburg, Texas. The background and the pole are all part of the piecing. The top and bottom parts of the background are sewed on before it is cut into strips.
I love your flags they are absolutely georgeous. Started High School in TX so have always had a soft spot for the lonestar...
Life is like a quilt...bits & pieces, joy & sorrow, stitched with love
Beautiful quilt and I too enjoy seeing all of the lovely projects that everyone makes.
Thanks for sharing.
Kathy, I, too, like your flag quilts.
Kathy - absolutely gorgeous... it does look very hard. I love it!
Kathy, love your flags. Look like they are waving in the breeze. I'm currently working on a Pink Ribbon bargello. It may turn out to be a career! It's a twin size and has 70 rows with 41 blocks per row and uses 21 different fabrics. The largest block is 3". What was I thinking?!
Here's a pic of the first bargello I made at a class at my lqs and is called a twisted bargello. It hangs in the place of honor in my sewing room.
