I have a segment that I frequently write called “ask Jo”. Readers ask questions or make comments and I share them here.
Today I am turning the tables and having an “ask my readers”. I am going to ask a question hoping someone out there can answer it. Here goes…
You might remember that a bit ago I did a blog post and told you all that Kalissa and Craig decided on a Perkiomen Daydreams quilt for their wedding. Well about two weeks after that blog post while I was in the middle of working on the floors for the house I get a message from her.
She was home laying on the couch missing work because she was sick. She was on the internet looking at quilts and sent me a few pictures. She is lazying around…I’m frantically trying to fix the floors working all day and sick of it.
A message comes from her…do you like this quilt?
Me covered in yuck scrambling to answer the phone: Sure. It’s nice.
I have to say, I appreciate Bargello quilts but they aren’t my favorite. It’s just not my style. Making one would be awful for me as I am so unorganized and have too many project going at once but I do love looking at them.
A text comes back five minutes later…what about this one. Do you like it?
Of course I had just gotten back to work…yep it’s nice too.
No response. Then 10 minutes later….I think I might like this one better.
Again, I was already back to work….Great-Another text a little later. I think Craig and I want one of these instead. UGH. GREAT! (completely with sarcasm) and by this point…a little crabby. I had stopped working each time just to hear something I had hoped to never ever never ever ever never ever hear in my life.
So dear blog readers…a while back maybe a month or two, I saw a youtube video on someone explaining how to do a bargello. There was a system to in that a person laid a piece of paper on top and cut. I don’t remember exactly but it made it look remotely do-able. In my mind I thought if I was ever completely off my rocker and decided to make one, I’d follow this idea. Now, of course, I can’t find it.
If someone can lead me towards a pattern, author or something that I can at least look at before I throw up my hands and scream would be just great. I really have no desire what so ever to make one. She of course says to me later….well I thought it would be easier than a Double Wedding Ring. Honestly, I’d rather make three Double Wedding Ring quilts than a bargello. I think it’s my fear of organization…UGH. So readers….HELP?!??!?!
