Design Wall Monday - Ups and Downs

I'm working on a bargello quilt. Arranging the strips so no seams lined up was a challenge.

The focus fabric is a really cute lizard print.

My sister got me Quilt It with Love: The Project Linus Story for Christmas. The book has a bargello quilt pattern called Life's Ups and Downs that caught my eye.

Some time back, I was given a fabric packet of coordinating 8" to 10" wide strips for a Project Linus quilt and never quite figured out what to do with them. When I saw Life's Ups and Downs, I knew it was a match for that fabric. I added the border fabric and one other fabric from my stash.

I have leftovers from all the solid strips and a whole other strip of the lizards, so I foresee another bargello quilt featuring the lizards.
