Super Bowl Bargello, Anyone??
Hi Ladies! (do we have any gents? I'm not sure!)
Next Sunday is Super Bowl Sunday. It's a retreat weekend for lots of quilt lists out there. It's my LAST hurrah in this house until I move!
So here is where my brain is. Instead of sewing something new...I have to do something I'm really not interested in doing, but I can do it in fast order if anyone wants to do it with me!
On Feb 28th I'm teaching Scrappy Bargello to the East Cobb Quilters of Marietta Georgia, and I need a lap-sized demo quilt! I know this can be made in a day. I've done it before! And all the ones I've done have been given away. I have one king sized one left here at home that has been on my bed. It's worn, washed, loved, and looking TERRIBLE. I can't have that as a demo quilt!
So....Sunday, Feb 3rd, I am designating as Super Bowl Bargello Day! If you want to join me, use some time this week to gather the following:
For the lap quilt you will need 128 2-1/2"X16" strips in a good variety of lights, mediums and darks.
You can get several strips out of a Fat Quarter...or you can dig through your scraps and cut what you have got into usable sized pieces.
The leftovers from trimming the strips to 16" lengths can be saved for other scrap quilts...like 4 patches and 9 patches! Or you can use them in the border!
In this quilt "ANYTHING" goes! Use it up, get it out of the scrap stash!
Who's game to play?!
