Dseign Wall Monday

I've been playing with my new foot, I bought it before Christmas and it is the 1/4 inch foot with the side guide on it which helps with accurate pieceing, I used to have foot like this on my old Janome and always missed it.

I have made the square in a square blocks for the borders of the Bargello, but have decided on a new setting.

I have been wanting to try Trapunto for ages and thought these boreders might give me an opportunity.

I recently missed out on a quilt as you go project that has been taking place in my quilting class, I didn't want to start a new quilt when I was already making the poppy quilt, so I thought I would use the technique on this quilt instead.
I am going to quilt the bargello itself first and then individually quilt the borders.

I'm really excited to be trying out two new techniques!

Beautiful quilt!! It looks like it's coming along well. I have always admired bargellos, ever since I started quilting. Someday I'll get brave and try one!

The bargello is quite lovely. Love the color selections. Looking forward to seeing how you finish this piece.

I love this bargello quilt and will be watching how it takes shape with trapunto. I'm facinated with trapunto as well and look forward to seeing how you progress. Just like you drew me to applique by your fine work, it will be fun watching you do trapunto. Take care.
