NOT to put a binding on the bargello?
It shrank from very horizontal to very vertical after I sewed all the strips. It is just about all solid seams. That'll influence the MQing. :( But as I was rounding up my sheep for fence jumping last night I wondered if I could just use the 'envelope' style of finish. Then I'd not have to worry about light on top, dark on bottom and all the colour nuances up the sides. ??? I'm trying to think out of the box!
But I am also in need of a boxful of ideas.
I see my house as a sampler quilt with each room a different block and the hallways the sashing. The winter quilt(decor) has cranberry as the unifying colour and the blocks (rooms) will be all composed of squares and rectangles. I have the room fabrics pretty much picked and sometimes the cranberry is the smallest accent. But I need some more ideas for blocks. I have rail fence and log cabin completed. Not all will be big quilts. I'm all for place mats and table toppers as well.
