I've been busy working on this and that but don't have much to share here just yet. Here's a picture of a bargello tablerunner I finished over the weekend. DH quilted it and four placements for me Sunday.
The patterns can be found in the book Twist-and-Turn Bargello Quilt by Eileen Wright. To be honest, before this project I had very little interest in making a bargello quilt. I only agreed to do this one because I was asked to offer a class on how to do it.
But I must admit, I enjoyed it. It was very quick and easy to do. One half yard of ten different fabrics will do one tablerunner and eight placemats. I think I'm hooked.
P.S. Did you know that Bargello is actually a type of needlepoint embroidery that was named after the Bargello palace in Florence, Italy, where this type of needlepoint was found on a series of chairs.
