My fabrics for the BargelloBowl quilt

I now have my fabrics cut for the BargelloBowl quilt. I have agonized over the fabrics I wanted to use for way too long - after all it is supposed to be a scrappy quilt, right? Well, I decided to use teals, purples and blues and only 32 fabrics, so each fabric will go completely across the quilt. Here are some pictures of my run. I just laid out the strips on top of each other to get the general idea of how it will look. They are shown in order from top to bottom.

Now I need to start sewing the 4 groups together. It's a good day for staying inside here - freezing rain, ice and sleet apparently this morning and even though the temp is 37 now there is still ice on the trees and bushes. I do have to go out later for hair appt, but I'll get some strips together before then I hope.

I love the colors. I think they will make a great bargello, especially purple!

Funny how small the world of quilters is - especially online! My sister is a member of the same quilt guild as Bonnie (at least until she moves) and cued me in to her website to figure out uses for some old shirts of my husbands. And now I am seeing the Bargello Bowl on her site and others - wow!

I am not participating - although I LOVE the look of bargello - and can't wait to see yours finished!

Oh Nancy!!!! I love how it is turning out!!! Such a wonderful selection of fabrics! I'm doing mine in almost every scrap fabric that I have since I did my other one a few months ago in matching fabrics. I can't wait to see how yours turns out. Keep those photos coming!!!

Oooh, it'll be beautiful. LOVE the colors. My daughter would be making those Puss-in-Boots eyes from Shrek for it - they're very similar to the border colors she's picked for a scrappy quilt.

I love the colours. They remind me of a favorite pair of jeans.
