Another reason that I took the plunge was because my mother-in-law showed me a picture of a bargello wall quilt that she really liked. I thought she wanted to make one but after thinking about it, I figured that maybe it would be nice if I made her one.
So I attended the retreat and found that the bargello wasn't so difficult if one kept track of the rows of quilt blocks. I felt that my project wasn't half bad. So I decided that I would indeed make my mother in law a wall quilt like the one she found in the book. Because I had a few projects underway, I wasn't able to jump into the project. It has now been 3 months and I've decided to do a quick wall hanging for Valentine's Day using bargello instructions. We'll see how it goes. Reading the instructions makes my head want to fall off. I do much better if I am able to do and see how things work.
So since I wasn't able to get that photo uploaded in time to post this when I wrote it, I've gone ahead and finished the wallhanging. Just as expected, it was easy to do once I had the fabric cut out and could see what I was doing. So there we go......now just to quilt it.
