Today I taught a class over at Merrillville Sewing Center, and it was on Bargello quilts! One of my students made this adorable quilt top! I’m just so in love with it, I might want to make one for myself! She picked out the most gorgeous Jelly Roles!
I’ve been working on these for a couple of days now, and I just finished my last two. One side is a cupcake, and the other side is a flip flop. I think they are just too cute! I did the applique with a regular sewing machine, but next time I think I’ll use an embroidery machine. You know, lately I’ve been trying to work on smaller projects besides quilts, because I want a few things that I can do in one sitting, versus a quilt taking a week. You know?
This took almost all evening yesterday, but I got it all done… Well, the quilt top is done anyway. Maybe, if I feel fancy tonight I’ll quilt it, but I’m thinking my sinuses are killing me, so Criminal Minds and plenty of rest are on my agenda. Anyways, let’s get back to the baby quilt. I’m debating on whether or not I want to put a solid border on it…. What do you think?
I’m teaching a class at work on how to make a bargello quilt! I’ve done one before, and now I’m making a very modern looking one with some very gorgeous fabrics! I can’t wait to cut my strips later tonight! Although, I’m wondering if I should do something even more modern with different size strips, or if I should just stick with the same size strips… We’ll see!
