    what does this mean.....
    . The strips have to cut three and half inches in length of the fabric, from cut the strips 3.5 inches wide of the fabric

    . Fabric with fold is to be faced towards you and then to be cut 2.5 inches strips of every fabric . Cut the fabric one at a time if you are a beginner.......I am not a beginner but this is sure making me feel like one .I thought this would be like a "short trip...I am confused by these insrtructions..can anyone help??

    My only reply to that link is that it is a very badly written tutorial. Too confusing!! Why not try asking one of the board members w/a bargello as their avatar for a bit of help decoding these instructions or see if they have a better set of directions that you could use.

    Those directions almost sound like they lost something while being translated maybe?
    I would look for another pattern :D:D:D

    I can see why you are confused....It sounds like the instructions were translated into English from a foreign (to English speakers) language. I don't think I could make a quilt with these instructions, and I do have a rather general idea of how a bargello is constructed.

    So sorry you are having this problem. It is disappointing.

    I think there are major mistakes in this pattern. You can't cut strips 3 1/2" wide and 2 1/2" wide at the same time.

    Barb did a tutorial in the tutorial section.

    Sounds like some instructions we got with the kids toys from foreign countries.

    That tutorial should be hung, drawn, and quartered and then stomped on with size 14 shoes!
    It's surprising that there are no comments attached!
    I wonder if the moderator for the article is just not posting the comments.
    There are many good patterns out there for making a
    bargello quilt.
    I'd strongly suggest putting this one out of your memory and looking elsewhere.
    It's not you. It's the instructions.

    Holy Moly!! That was the worst tut I have ever seen. That person should be ashamed and remove it. No wonder you couldn't understand it.
