Bargello Project and Appearing Nine Patches

I have to get in quick because BK will be roaring along soon enough, zipping through and along strips with the ease of a veteran patchworker. It's not that BK is old or anything, she's just been doing it (patchwork) for a long time. So in the picture above, is my first strip of six that will comprise the centre of my scrappy bargello. I sneaked down to the donga for a while, in between hanging out three loads of washing. So far so good.

The disappearing Nine Patch is appearing as something useful, besides insulation in the cupboard and I pretty pleased with it as well. It's going to be a bit of a mother, however we all will be able to sleep under it. It is too big for our normal sized double bed, who knows, who cares, they are being used.

Erm, the 9 patch...still dont 'get it' Thick as a brick as they say!
Love the bright colours though, so I guess that is getting it- right??

I have never seen a real life Bargello, so I dont really understand those either... but I do like the bright array of colours.

I'm glad you're mixing up all the bits, I wondered what a scrappy one would look like. It's very cheerful and I like the random look of it.
