Bargello Top!!!!!!

Here is my Bargello! Now all I have to do is add the borders and quilt it. I will pick up the border fabric on Friday. I am so glad to get it done. I had strips hanging all over the house, so I was glad to get the mess up. I still had it on the bed when Richard came home. He loved it. He is ready for me to make another one. I told him, I would have to wait a while. I don't think I could stand to do two Bargellos back to back.

Anyway, I finished this up this morning. I had an extra strip set leftover, so I will add borders to it to make a baby quilt. I started working on another SBS block, then Richard came home from work and I had to help him with his tractor. His tractor brokedown over in one of the horse lots. So I had to take his truck and pull him up to the fence so he could work on it close to the house. There was so many trees, we had to cut a road with the chainsaw to get to it and get it out.

After the boys got home from school, Richard headed to bed and we headed to Walmart. Walmart opened up today here in Louisa. Which is 20 minutes from here. It is a super Walmart, but they don't have any fabric. :o( They have tons of sewing machines, thread, mats, rotary cutters and all of that, but no fabric. The only thing that I bought was "Quilter's World" magazine. I usually don't buy this one, but it had a quilt on the cover that I liked. It has horses on it!! Can't pass up a pattern with horses!!!!

Your quilt looks GREAT, Kristie! Good job! Maybe if Walmart has all that stuff they will be getting fabric...did you ask anyone? It sounds like Richard is a very loving man, and very supportive of everything you do. Sounds like you got a fantastic guy. Michelle

Wow I love your bargello! You did a great job on it. Does this one go to the quilter next?

Kristie, it's fantastic!!! What are you using for the border? THe blue paisley?

For those extra strip sets; instead of a baby quilt; why don't you make two pillow shams to go with the quilt since it's for your bed?

How do you think you'll have them quilt it? That's been on my mind. I'm sort of thinking I'd like to put this one in a quilt show or state fair!

It's beautiful. Way to go, such talent. Is this the next one to go to the quilter? If you have no place to store it I'd be glad to take it off your hands.
