This is my initial try at selecting the 24 fabrics for Spiral Burst Bargello (pattern by Becky Botello.)

I use yellow flat head flower pins with a number written on them with a sharpie permanent marker to “label” my fabric strips. In the photo if you zoom in you should be able to see the yellow label pins. The upper left hand corner is number one, below that is number 2. So numbers 1-12 flow down through the left hand column. The right hand column has number 13 on the bottom and flows up to number 24 on the top. I wanted to check that fabric strip 1 flows smoothly to fabric 24 since they will be joined in a tube and immediately adjacent to each other.

My focus/inspiration fabric is fabric #19 in this photo.

Unfortunately what looked great together as fat quarters doesn’t quite work as strips. Here is where I think this fabric strata run looks wrong.

Fabric #4 has to much red for its current location

Fabrics #23-#4 are too close together in texture and scale

The transition between fabric #24 and #1 is to abrupt for this pattern

The transition between fabric #15 and #16 is to abrupt for this pattern

 See picture SP Fabric 2 for the corrections
