This is a picture of the top left ¼ of the Bargello quilt from the pattern Sweet Dreams Bargello by Becky Botello. I am showing one column past the center. You will need to imagine the design mirrored to the right and to the bottom. You can see the full pattern here http://www.etsy.com/listing/61099698/sweet-dreams-bargello-quilt-top-e What do you think? It is soft and dreamy, like I had hoped, but perhaps it is too matchy and blendy??? This is my first batik Bargello and I don’t feel like I am using the textures and scales to good advantage. Since this pattern is symmetrical and uses 24 different fabrics I can get 24 different variations from the same strip set. I am calling this variation 24 because I started with fabric #24 in the upper left hand corner. Then I rolled all my tube slices to the correct location specified in the pattern. Next variation I will start with fabric #23 in the left hand corner and roll all the tube slices to the correct location. This way I can see all 24 variations and pick my favorite before I pick my seams open and open the tube.

 Would you like to see some of the other variations? If so, which one do you want to see? It may take me a few days to get them all pinned up and photographed.

 Happy quilting.

I love your colors.  They look richand warm.  Post the layout choices.  I'd like to see what they look like.  When I did mine, I had a big red bulleye in the middle.  A little turn and we were good to go.
