WIP Wednesday - American Flag Bargello

I started this Bargello American Flag off with much more confidence than I have at this point.  I thought I could tackle the design I had in my head without a pattern...now I'm stuck!!  I suppose that is what happens when you're too cheap to buy a pattern.

This is my first attempt at Bargello Quilting so the fact that it even resembles anything at all is an accomplishment.  HA!  I believe I'm going do add 4-5 more strips of red and blue and then the same width of just red and white.  I hope to have the top finished by the end of the week, then I can argue with myself over sashing and finishing options.  I can't wait!

  1. It looks lovely so far! I toyed with the same idea, only simpler, and yes, it's difficult to get it to look like you want. Abandoned the idea, and went with something I like better, which I'm using for a quilt-along that starts tomorrow. Come see at quiltfabrication.blogspot.com
