I decided to do something crazy last night! I actually took out an UNFINISHED project!!! I tried these placemats a few years back and I only finished 3. Last night I finished piecing the other three!!!! Now all that is left is binding! I used the pattern from the book Bargello Quilts by Marge Edie. It was a great way to try Bargello without it being too much of a project. I definitely have some "parallelograms", but I guess that's life!!
I picked out the colors to represent the "Illini" at the University of Illinois! =)
