Have you ever bargello-ed?

What’s that? 
It’s a style of quilt that I’m really hoping isn’t over my head.    We’ve picked one of the easier projects in the book but there might still be more ciphering than what this ol’ brain can handle.  Time will tell.

I was able to get the prep cutting and sewing done over the weekend and three weeks in advance I might add.


One of the best parts of this whole project is – I was able to stash bust the whole thing.  I don’t have to buy any new fabric for it.  Now that feels good!

In the meantime, I have to get to work on something that should have been done for a wedding gift back in April.  I’m really excited about what I’m making for the new couple but for obvious reasons I can’t show it on here yet. 

So, back to the original question.. have you ever bargello-ed?  How did it turn it out?  Loved it or never again?  do share.  Smile


  1. Been there. Done that - kind of. I had a hard time deciding how wide to cut my strips. Don't think I ever finished that piece. I probably should have used a pattern! Good Luck - I'm anxious to see your project.

  2. Wow! Can't wait to see the end result :)

  3. I've done one - one much simpler than what you're doing. It's not difficult though. Cyphering the pattern directions was the hardest part. They're great stash busters!

  4. I never have; I'm not smart enough!
    Good luck; I know you're a great quilter and seamstress.

  5. No I haven't done one. I haven't even decided on my fabrics yet, but I'm getting close. :)

  6. Bargello was one of the first quilts I made and I just loved it. I thought it was pretty easy if you just follow the steps in the directions precisely. The results look like you spent a lot more work than you actually do. Enjoy the process. Carline

  7. I've only done the Bonnie Hunter method where all of the strips are cut at 2.5". Very easy...very scrappy.
