At last week's quilt guild meeting, I was talking to a fellow quilter about my bargellow attempt.
I was huffing and puffing about the tedious alignment of all the seams, and she said "You aligned the seams? But you don't do that in a bargello, you have all the seams in the middle of the adjacent squares."
So I went online and googled Bargello quilt, and my quilter friend was right!
It's quite obvious, the rows of the bargello quilts are all offset 1/2 square. Do you know how much work that would have saved me? Plus, I was a bit baffled about how steep the curved line turned out to be. Big *SIGH*!
Maybe using a pattern has its advantages to just winging it from having seen bargellos on a few internet photos???
I'm chuckling quite a bit about this new-found knowledge and my own bargello version!
Maybe I will do a full-sized one now, I just have to start fresh - can't really do one section with the seams aligned and all the others off-set!
Have you done something funny but dumb like this recently?
