This is the progress on my Bargello Quilt–2 stratas complete. My third and fourth stratas are still sitting in the 2 1/2″ strip stage–no piecing completed on them yet.
Notice that my two stratas are a total of 13 strips wide, not 12 as suggested in Bonnie Hunter’s pattern.
Because I am continuing with the same fabrics across the quilt and not making my quilt in the random scrappy pattern suggested by Bonnie, I wanted to avoid two identical squares appearing side by side as would happen if I put together two stratas of only 6 strips each. By adding a strip of squares between the two stratas and offsetting the squares in this strip, I have completed the “point” of my zig zag pattern.
Further work on this quilt top will have to wait until the weekend.
