    Benartex Dreamscape Jellyroll Jam

    Good Day all,

    Hi I'm a newer quilter, I've been working on a jelly roll bargello quilt but I need 1 more roll to get the size correct. However, the company is not making that design anymore. I found a fat quarter pack with the same colors and wonder if anyone can suggest a design.
    A few little notes, I started sewing and cutting and renewing the first roll already so I'm slightly locked in.
    I'd appreciate Any expertise in this endeavor.

    Thank you.

    Side note if anyone has a Benartex Dreamscape pinwheel they are willing to part with I will buy it off you.

    Thanks

    Hello and welcome from BC, Canada! I'm still a beginner myself and can't offer much help, but you should get some good advice from the kind folks here.
    Rainy days are for quilting. Thank goodness I live in a rainforest! 😁

      Welcome! If you need to change your design out, what are your pieces cut at right now?

        Hello quilters,

        Thanks for the welcome. So far I have sewed, cut and re sewn 1 full Jellyroll in the bargello pattern *see attached photo.

        I have 2 "raw" jellyrolls (unopened) and have a mind to buy a few fat quarters of the same pattern but the color palette is slightly different.

          If it were me and I couldn't find the same jelly roll...I might ...just might get a lighter and darker ..same color palete and do lighter on the left and darker on the right of the piece you have now so it kinda ombres. Or there's always so much you could with applique...I have so many ideas in my head...it's really pretty!!

            What gorgeous fabric! I know you don't normally sash this pattern, but what if you sashed it so it breaks up the color palette. It could look on purpose.

              I’ve not done a bargello quilt before so don’t have a lot of I put. I love your colors. I agree with Momofmonsters5 that if I didn’t have all I needed I would do lighter on one side and darker on the other side of what you already have.

                My first thought, it's beautiful!

                How wide and how long is it? What size were you hoping for? I have more questions than ideas. I agree with Mom and Lorie.

                Look at Rob Appell's Color Strata. https://www.missouriquiltco.com/shop...YaAoweEALw_wcB You could sash between each row of your bargello, break it up into small lengths. One thing about that is getting everything even. I found the sections tended to stretch and shift and it made squaring the quilt up a pain.

                Good Luck!

                  Thank you so much ALL! I feel so supported and am ready to take another run at this quilt. I'm Strongly considering both the sashing as well as the pallet changes. I'm aiming for a queen size spring/summer quilt. Bargello is my go to pattern currently being a beginner. I feel accomplished when I hear oohs and ahhs. I also like the movement the pattern gives the impression of. Thank you all once again for The supportive comments and suggestions. I think I've found a virtual quilt guild. 💕

                    Rachel (Momofmonsters) had a really good idea. But if you can't finish it like that it would make a beautiful table runner the way it is now. You did an excellent job putting that together and the colors are so pretty. Oh, and welcome to the Forum from Wisconsin! We are so happy to have you.

                      Cozy Quilts has a bargello pattern... a little late, but it will give you some ideas on how much fabric you're looking at needing.https://cozyquilt.com/Aspx/ProductDe...ProductID=4720 Their pattern only goes up to a twin using 2 jelly rolls and background fabric
                      Donna Jordan has a bargello, too. https://jordanfabrics.com/pages/bargello-quilt

                        Hello & Welcome!

                        That is a gorgeous design for your quilt. Did you see the available yardage? I would grab some while you can so you can continue the color pattern. Good luck with your search. Sometimes the hunt is the best part of making quilts.

                          Sometimes I find things like that on eBay.

                            You are getting some good advice here, but are you locked into using another jelly roll? What I mean is if you were able to find some yardage, couldn't you make your own strips? There are still some of the Dreamscape yardage at some quilt shops (this one has 19 different colors available http://www.sewmuchfun4you.com/shop/F...Dreamscape.htm). I really like the look of what you're doing. Good luck and welcome to the forum!

                            There's nothing more directly linked to who we are than the fabric that we make.

                              Thank you everyone for your kind replies and suggestions. I ended up ordering 2 fat quarters from Quilt in a day as Rhonda suggested. I've decided to do bargello in the middle with a sickle square on both ends. It may take awhile but I'm excited and the new square will take me out of my comfort zone and give me a real challenge. Much love for all the support and I will post again as things progress.

                              I plan on doing 2 midsection columns from this pattern.
