Summer Breeze Bargello -

Last seam ready to be sewn -

Then ready to be pressed -

Which seemed to take f.o.r.e.v.e.r. -

Every single one of those seams had to be pressed in the "correct" direction to make it lie flat -

And there are a LOT of them - so it took me a while -

Now the top is DONE!! -

Ta Dah!! - ;))

And - if you're wondering - the skinniest strips are cut at 1" - and finish at 1/2" -

That's pretty darn skinny - but they make a really nice swerve in the pattern -

After I finish writing this up - and scheduling it to post in the morning -

I'm going to have my new FAVORITE dessert - courtesy of Ravelly Rhonda -
who posted about one of her favorite late night snacks - HERE -

Vanilla ice cream sprinkled with crushed Fritos on top -
EDIT UPDATE - added "crushed" above - ;))

Sweet/salty sounded good to me - so I had to try it -

I added some caramel sauce just for fun -
Like one of her commenters recommended -

And let me tell you -


For those of you who are thinking - YUK!! -

All I can say is -

Don't knock it - if you haven't tried it - LOL - ;))

Just TASTE it -

Then - if you don't like it -

That's fine -

It leaves more for me - and Rhonda - LOL - ;))

Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -

Your quilt top is bright and cheerful.

Hmmm, I might try crushing the Fritos before putting them on the ice cream so that the salt could be more evenly distributed.

Will have to try it.

The bargello is a knockout! I love the dimension that skinny strip added to the swerve. My first thought was that the top wasn't laying flat. Then I looked at the edges and saw that it really was.

You hit it out of the ballpark twice today. Bargello is absolutely wonderful. Great pattern with small pieces make a great finish. Then comes the ice cream and corn chips. I have to join you and Rhonda with that one.
Enjoy your day!

The quilt is beautiful! But I'm with Gene - it doesn't LOOK like it's laying flat. (So maybe all that work to press seams wasn't worth it? No. It was. Whoever quilts it will appreciate the effort!) But I do like the illusion that it's not flat. And I am STILL not going to put fritos on my ice cream.

Masking/ painters tape is my friend when I make a bargello! Even numbers go right Odd nubers get pressed left and I can always find the

Love your colors and as for matching seems I have been known to off set just about anything I can get away with

That bargello is stunning!

It's beautiful! I love it!
People put chopped peanuts and other nuts on ice cream, so the salty/sweet thing seems to work for some people. I love to try new foods and the addition of the caramel sounds yummy.

Congratulations on that lovely piece of eye-candy. That is something I will never see in my home but it was sure fun to watch the process.
