Holiday Memories

I have finally got round to planning my holiday memories wall hanging.

I am using the Bargello style of patchwork, (inspired by Eldrid's northern lights wall hanging) but needed to know how to get the curve, so I practised with paper.

I made the horizontal strips

Then cross cut and tried to arrange them.  I was doing OK until Quilt Inspector #2 came to help

Thanks Scratchy, just make yourself comfortable why don't you?

Finally she got bored and let me finish my paper quilt

Now to do the real thing!


  1. Think your helper had the wrong idea about this Benta, hope you have him better trained when you are doing this for real!

  2. Sometimes helpers just aren't all that helpful! Love the glimpse of your wall hanging- it's going to be a great one Benta!

  3. good luck!
    those are the best and worst kind of helpers!! I had a cat who.. the moment I put a design on the floor would roll and scatter the bloks!! shutting her out of the room worked for about 2 seconds until she realised what I was doing .. then set out trying to demolish the door with her claws!! gave up and used the wall! she would sit and look .. critically at the wall xx loved and miss her x

  4. Oooo, this one looks interesting. I can't wait to see the finished product.
