Here it is, finally done! This is the last of the Sugar Maple projects. While I didn't enjoy the bargello technique, I absolute love the result. The Sugar Maple fabric is available at the special price until the 15th and you can find out how to order it here.
Now that business is done, let's talk about bargello. You would think that this is THE perfect project for me. I love a tedious project and I lvoe projects with lots of small pieces. But usually with projects like that you get the pleasure of a step called "mindless sewing". Not with this. First you cut a million strips and sew them together in a tube, then you cut the tubes into strips. So far so good. But then you have to take the tubes apart, remove some pieces, rearrange some things and sew the strip back together before you sew it to the quilt. It made my head hurt.
I was going to keep this for myself but I know of a beautiful handmade table that I think this will look great on. Merry Christmas, Kim!
