FNSI ~ Bargello Placemats

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! =)

Great place mats and you are so right... this project is small enough to get in some great fabric placement and have fun with bargello design.
This is my first FNSI so I was very happy to get something accomplished.
Take care.

You had a great FNSI. It's always so satisfying when we can get at those old UFOs.
