Oooooh, pretty! I just l-o-v-e love
bargello quilts.
I love the movement, the colors, and the fact that they are so dang easy but look so hard. "All those little pieces." When I was in Denver in July to see the Sisters of the Cloth exhibit at the Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum in Golden, Jessica took me to a quilt store where this quilt was hanging as a sample for a class. I bought the ruler and the book on the spot. Turns out, the book has been around since 2001! I don't know how I missed that one. The color is off in this photo, but the top is yellows, oranges, and deep reds, and looks like a sunrise...or a sunset. Maybe 12 of the 18 fabrics were in my stash, and I had to go in search for the others to fill in the gaps. (Awwww---poor baby!) If I weren't going to L.A this weekend to visit my friend Pam, I could easily finish piecing this. I won't be back until THURSDAY, so my little fingers will be itching to get to this when I return.

I like Bargello quilts but have always been a little afraid of being off by even a little bit and creating a hot mess!! I have heard that the ruler does make this pattern come together quickly and easily. Maybe I will get up my nerve to try it one day.

Yours is very nice and I like the color scheme.
