It's a start

With this bargello, you make 6 strip sets, then as you assemble the rows, you have to adjust some of them. So you look at the diagram and take off what you don't need on a strip, and attach it to the next strip. You continue to do this until you have your full row, which in this case is 39 squares. Because the pattern changes, so do your rows. On these first rows, even though my green strips have 7 squares I am only using 2 on each end in the first row, 3 in the 2nd row, and 4 in the 3rd row.

The inspector showed up.

I have made a bargello a while ago. And it was a flip and sew method. Not too sure that I liked that method though. Looking forward to seeing how yours turned out. Gotta love the inspector!

I think you have the quilt police liveing at your house... all in pretty fur coats.

The quilt is going to be lovely. It is fun to see how you can see the color changes so quickly...showing the pattern starting to emerge.
