Thank you for stopping by for the Black and White Blog Hop hosted by Creatin' In The Sticks.
With a black and white and gray jelly roll on hand and a plan to make a bargello quilt, this became the project for this bloghop. This is a new to me design. I'm wowed over all the stunning bargello quilts online. Google them and see all the amazing designs for them.
It's all about the flow of the placement of the pieces. I actually did not use a pattern for the design. I did read many online sites about bargello patterns and did watch many Youtube videos on them and then just winged it.
I added a white on white print from my stash to define and enhance the flow of my design. I like it with just the design and no borders, but I had no more 2.5 inch strips so I added the solid black and gray borders.
I call this quilt Enlightening. It was enlightening to me to take on the bargello that I thought I would never accomplish and just love everything about it -- the easy, quick, and beautiful design it became. And it does sort of look like a lightening bolt, don't you think? I will confess this was not the design I envisioned at the start, but I'm super pleased with the result. It seemed to take on its own look.
If you haven't created a bargello quilt yet, make it your next must do project. You will not be disappointed in your creation.
Check in with Creatin' in the Sticks for more black and white this week.
