Bargello Quilt-Along Part II

I'm so HAPPY. I spent all week waiting for Friday to see what Katie had posted about the Bargello Quilt-Along.
I followed her great instructions very carefully and cut my tubes and unpicked the strips


I assembled all the strips to make sure the design was right

The strips are overlapping but the design is perfectly visible.

 To be pretty sure, I tried the design on the floor

Then I began sewing the strips very carefully trying not to make a mistake and...Wow!!!
     

     I made my first Bargello, I can't believe how easy it was. Thanks Katie for all your help and clear instructions.
Now I have to wait until Friday again to finish my wonderful table runner. In these difficult times I'm going trough, quilting is my therapy. Today it was almost like someone above was helping me, the seams nested perfectly, I didn't make any mistake and the corners matched so well. Maybe it's a sign that things might get better. I really hope it is.

I'm sorry you're having difficult times. I'm sending a big hug. Keep on stitching, and that will make you feel better, too.

Hi Teresa, your bargello looks great and the fabrics work well together. Sorry about things not going so well and I agree, quilting is such a refuge.
