As if I didn’t have enough projects to work on, I’m planning on starting a quilt. It will be a queen-sized bargello, with a green and orange color scheme. Don’t know who that might be for 😉 (and don’t say anything if you know!)
Here’s some pictures — I had about 20 quilting books I just had to turn back to the library, but I think I found a pattern to start with. It’s not the right size, so I’ll have to get Kent to help me add inches. But it’s a layout like what I was seeing in my mind’s eye. I’ve never done quilted bargello, and only once done stitched bargello. I love it, but this will be a learning process.
I think I’ll do the colors running from pale peach/apricots, to burnt orange, and pale greens to dark forest greens, with a splash of white here and there (no yellow, though). I thought a good name might be Autumn Fireflies, in reference to the original pattern and the color scheme.
Anyway. I have to tinker with the size before I start shopping for fabric. And I should probably get rid of some of the projects clogging up the closet before I do this. But it’s in the works. 🙂
