I have completed the piecing of five bargello quilts so far this year. They are all posted in my gallery.  In chronological order I did Ocean Current bargello, then Wind in the Willows, then Patriotic Dreams, then Summer Joy, and then Pandemonium. If I post them in the bargello group, only people in the group can see them, so I post them in the main gallery. Then I pieced Crystal Reflections, a scrappy hunters star with my stained glass border treatment, which has been very popular, and a Koi Garden quilt which will get free motion quilted.

I am currently working on JInny Beyers Kashmir pattern which has proven to be a challenge. First I had less than 1/4 of the fabrics called for in the pattern. My border fabric, which is the main part of the quilt, is the wrong colorway and I only had 4 yards and the pattern calls for over 7 yds. I am having to be really really creative. The first 16 blocks are done and the quilt is already insisting that it wants be Firefly Glow, not Kashmir. A completely different vibe than what I had envisioned. But I never try to force a quilt design. If it isn't working and wants to be something different, I go with it. I may finish the next 20 blocks after dinner tomorrow. Then the challenge of tying them together cohesively begins.

Of course sometimes things turn out bad, but as long as I am learning, and growing, and sharing, I am happy.

I found a great new free bargello pattern and an accompanying 25 minute long you tube video on how to make it by Northcott

The pattern I choose to do wasn't a bargello, but around the world. Here is a picture of it.

I found this great link for free bargello patterns at http://quiltinspiration.blogspot.com/2012/05/free-pattern-day-bargello-quilts.html. If you are interested in checking out various designs. I do not know when the free part expires though and they change the type of designs available.
