Bargello Wins The Bowl!



It's done! And in the quick of time, really! It went so fast! Amazing what you can accomplish with friends sewing along with you. Add pizza delivery, some pink lemonade, and some popcorn!

It's 8:47pm here on the east coast. I'm cleaning up my mess, and packing the car for driving to Winston Salem tomorrow....folding a bunch of laundry (Jason and Kim get the old washer and dryer for the cute house that Kim just bought..)and we'll be out of here in the morning!

I decided just to pack some handwork with me, but the ott light is going with all the stuff I'm bringing...

I've negotiated breakfast and lunch at the house..but dinners will be OUT until we are fully moved in and functional!

I'm taking the camera with me...but I probably won't be able to post again until Thursday or so unless I find a wifi place some where and I think I'll be too busy for that. So ya'll take good care of yourselves and each other, and I'll be back with an update as soon as I can!

Congrats on the fast finish, Bonnie! Sending well wishes your way for a trouble-free move!

Myra said...

Bonnie, you are amazing! I got sidetracked today and only got me strips sewn together.

Have a safe trip. We are supposed to have nice weather this week so it should be good for moving your appliances and such.

Good luck with your closing/move.

Marianne said...

Great quilt, love all those plaids!

Tracy said...

Love the quilt! Great job!

I am praying for a smooth and easy move.

Mary said...

It looks great!

Drive safely! FYI, during our move I used the internet at the local library to keep in touch.

Thanks for the Super Bowl Sunday. It was fun watching your progress, and it was the incentive I needed to give the Scrappy Trips pattern a try. Only got 8 blocks finished, but that's okay, I had fun. Good luck with your move.

So you did it! I thought I didn't like Bargello's, but I DO like this plaid one!!
Good luck with closing and moving!

Dawn said...

Oh Bonnie! I just love this with plaids! I think I have to go shopping for some now! I have some, but want more (notice want - not need)!

Desert Threads said...

Love it!! I especially love how the yellow and orange make it "pop"!

Marcie said...

Ahhh, plaids! I love it! More of your shirts I bet. I worked on my scrappy trips over the weekend and got some done. It is so fun! Have a safe trip and lots of happiness in your new home!

Your energy absolutely amazes me! I love how you share it with us too. I'm echoing the thought that I don't really like bargellos but with plaids it's a whole new look. I love what you done with it!
It sounds like your relocation is going pretty well. Enjoy that new house and those beautiful trees.

Nice job on the quilt. I haven't joined you on your projects yet since I am committed to finishing my UFOs.

If you get a chance please look at my current UFO that I am finishing up. Do you think those are shirtings? They are cotton and poly/cotton. Would love an opinion on my questions and age if you have any thoughts there.

The bargello is a winner! I hope to see you soon!

Cheryl said...

Your Bargello came out beautifully! You did a great job. You made it fun for all of us to follow along on your Bargello Bowl adventure.

Niki said...

Beautiful! Gotta love homespun :)

Katie said...

Thinking of you this week. Hope it all goes smoothly!

Love your quilt! Plaids are my favorite! It looks so cozy to me.
Just wanted to let you know, I gave you and your Scrap Users System a plug on my blog. I love your system, and it has been such a help to me. I will be showing the quilts I made from your system in the near future. Please come take a look at my blog. www.indigothreads.blogspot.com

Oh! I forgot to say this: Best of luck on your move. We moved last year, and I'm still unpacking. But I love my new home, and it was worth the effort! I wish you the same! My thoughts are with you.
