The Arnprior Guild had three challenges last year: Crayon challenge, 10 inch block challenge, and the President’s Challenge. I didn’t participate in the President’s challenge but I did participate in the other two.
With the Crayon challenge we had to pick a crayon from a bag and make anything using only that colour/colour family (white and black were also allowed to be used). I (surprisingly) picked one of my favourite colours…pink! I had designed a nice lap quilt but because I was procrastinating, I ended up changing my mind and decided to try a bargello. For the first time. With a week left. Good idea, right?
I searched Pinterest and YouTube for tutorials and beginner bargellos. I found a few tutorials, watched a few videos and decided to get started. Not as hard as I thought, but also not as easy as I thought…ok I didn’t think it was easy to begin with. Cutting the inital strips was easy though! Especially with a Go! Cutter (#notsponsored), cutting is a breeeeeeeeeze. Things might have went down hill after that but hey, it started off well.
