Butterflies Remembering Bargello By Judith Steele
I love the way Bargello quilts look and set out to design one using EQ6 for the Australian Quilting Convention Challenge 2010. Once I’d designed a block I liked I used the symmetry tool to combine the block in different orientations and combinations. This design, that looks like butterflies fluttering around in circles, came up after a few iterations. My quilt was an “also ran” in the competition but one magazine editor saw it and has asked to publish it as a project. A friend visited while I was making it and mentioned a number of times how much she liked it while standing and gazing at it so, once I get it back, it will go to her.
