Needlework Tuesday is a regular weekly post where I share the progress of my various needlework projects over the past week. I enjoy the encouragement that I receive from my readers and in return visit their blogs and cheer them on with theirs.

I decided the best approach would be to sew the strips together in pairs. Just over half are paired in the following photos. When I look at the strips with my glasses off, I can really see the pieces flowing together. My only problem with this pattern is that we were instructed to press the seams open. arg, that means that every intersection has to be pinned. That's one heck of a lot of pins. It is worth the effort and the seams are matching wonderfully.
I bought border fabrics today and am looking forward to completing this quilt top. It should end up a good lap size, unless we decide to hang it on the wall. #BargelloQuilt
Truth be told, I had intended to work on another quilt this week, but I haven't found all the fabrics I want to use. I knew that if i rushed it, I wouldn't have been happy with the results. Better to take my time in the preparation stage, it will result in a much better quilt in the long run.
