Bargello Twist Units done

I finally finished the units all 4 this morning and tonight I put it together after cutting a square out of the units...It is not straight and has many mistakes but this is the first piecing I have done and stayed with it..another teacher I may have just did not do it..Ruth is a very very patience teacher..I am auditioning fabrics for the border..which ones do you like the best..dh likes the purple, I like the bottom..the binding will be black..
Now I hope Bargello Seasons is much easier, but it calls for making tubes and of course I never have done that either..all I can imagine is those tube stretch knit fabric you put on sweatshirts when you make them, I have done this..tube was already done..we will see..taking a break and also going to bed now as dh has some horrific hours for now..he has to be at work at 3 am and work 10-12 hours for now..I went to bed at 8:45 last night..lol that a record for me..

Love this Lorraine - I was curious how it was going to turn out when I saw the smaller blocks - it's very impressive. I'm with your dh on the border - I like the purple one.

Well, Thank you Patti, I think it is the colors that are great but not the piecing..like I said this is the first and was truly an amazing experience, some good and some bad..lol but I love it mistakes and all..when dh came home from work he was curious to see which border print I picked out as he thought the purple..I love purple but like the bottom one because it had all the colors in it..but did not do as much as this print did..I had to lay off in doing anything as I cut my pointer really bad with a knife..Boy, it has been a long time since I was so careless about doing something..it is getting better..thank you so much for you wonderful compliment..lots of hugs, Lorraine
