Bargello Audition

A zoom group I’m in had to nominate a favourite book each, quilting related, I chose Eileen Wright Twist and Turn Bargello and then realised I have never made any of the quilts in the book. Well if this is not a good time to start one, I don’t when is. First I need to choose 20 fabrics in shades of one colour family. Quite hard when I only have my stash to choose from so I’m mixing plains and patterns and see how they go together . I’ve cut one strip from 10 fabrics and put them on the design wall. I then photographed them in colour and black and white to see if I’ve got the shading right. Once I’m happy with the arrangement, I will repeat with the second batch of 10.
