Back to Bargello

I have not forgotten the bargello.  
Those pieces are right where I can see them every day.  
I want to have the bargello section of the top done this year. 
So now I am on a tight schedule.
The upper half is finished. 
Aren't those colors luscious?
 When I took photos, I had 10 strips of the bottom half sewn - there are 45 strips total.

The wind started blowing as I started to take photos- why does that ALWAYS happen?
 Right now, I have 14 of the 45 sewn.  
But I have all day tomorrow to sew. (Tomorrow is New Years Eve.)

Will I make it?  Will I even come close?  
The answer will depend on how I feel tomorrow
What comes up that I may need to do instead of sewing. 

Time will tell.  But at least I am getting there. 

Until Next Time,  
Stay Creative

Gene - don't stress yourself out trying to finish it this year - quilting is supposed to be FUN - so RELAX and ENJOY sewing it together - if you want some stress - you can always go back to work - LOL. To me - the journey is more fun than the destination - playing with a quilt is much more fun than looking at it "finished" - but then again - it's probably just me. I hope you have a VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR - ;))

It looks like it will be a large quilt. It took me a couple of times reading to realize that the picture is only half of the quilt. I know that is what you said, but the picture and the text didn't register with me. I am sure you can finish the bottom half today. That is, if you don't do anything else. I can imagine that it is a little tedious and a little boring sewing those long strips and keeping the seems together. It is looking great.

Happy New Year!

I hope you didn't stress it too much! Sometimes loveliness takes time and this is a lovely quilt! Can't wait to see it finished. Thanks for sharing on Wednesday Wait Loss!

This is awesome Gene. The wind is always blowing where I live so I understand the struggle. Just keep hitting the shutter button and one will come out close to straight. Wonder if you got it finished, I will have to go see now. Thank you for linking up to Put your foot down, I love this.
