Secret secret! Well, not really. My husband got his new knives, and I spoke before thinking and said, "I could make a quilt like those handles!" Damn and blast, now he knows what he's getting for Christmas. I made him promise that he wouldn't peek while I make it, though, so it will probably still surprise him.
I spent the evening cutting fabric into strips. I am going to try my first bargello quilt. Can someone please tell me how that is pronounced? Is it barge-ello, barg-ello, or some sort of foreign sounding variation? Either way, I am going to attempt to use that technique to replicate an impression of three Busse knife handles. We'll see how this goes, both the technique and creation of the vision in my head.
