Jess created this lovely Bargello for her niece — not even a serious bicycle accident slowed her down. And here it is completely done! Wow! If you look closely you can see how Jess used her leftover strata in the binding for a very intriguing effect.
It all started in a class at ScruffyQuilts. Here’s a few pictures of Jess’s quilt in progress:
Judy has also nearly finished her Bargello, using some fabulous Aboriginal fabrics!
Here are a few pictures of some of the other students’ class projects:

Annette took on the challenge of this fabulous Judy Niemeyer pattern with absolutely no paper piecing experience whatsoever. She caught on very quickly, as you can see.
Having prepared all the leaves and flowers for the medallion, she then embarked upon a search for the perfect background fabric for the fishbones/buds. Finally, she found it! But, we only had a pre-cut yard of it left. Oh, no! Fortunately, we were able to reorder it upon her request and now look how nicely Annette’s Paradise in Blooms is evolving. Love the yellow buds against the teal!
Can’t wait to see it with the appliqué!
