When I saw this scrappy bargello by Jane at Sew Create It, I knew I had to make one. I had been saving 3″ scraps after making and loving my first leader-ender. It would have been a lot easier to construct this quilt in the true bargello fashion using strips but putting individual pieces on the design wall was fun too.
When I was happy with the arrangement, I took the pieces off the wall one horizontal row at a time. I pressed the row seams in opposite directions so the column seams would lay flatter. Since I am donating this as a community service quilt through my guild, I just turned the backing to the front as a binding and machine stitched. All done (even labeled) for turn-in at our next meeting. A member of our guild printed this batch of labels so each recipient could put his or her name on their quilt. The labels iron on but we add some stitches to help them STAY on.
