    See, I have the opposite take on Marge Edie's book. I found it very difficult, and eventually gave up. Plus I really hate unsewing, so I didn't want to make a bargello using the tube method. The strip piecing way was much easier for me.

    I always read posts about Bargellos because I'm still in search of a pattern for a SMALL quilt - a wall hanging. So I'm asking this question again, if anybody out there has a suggestion.

    I also agree with the others. Margie Edie book is really a great resource for making bargello quilts. They really aren't as difficult as they look. Just take it slow and read the instructions.

    I took a class and made a Margie Edie pattern. In the book there was a picture in her gallery but it wasn't one of the patterns in the book. Of course it eas the one my sister wanted. I emailed her and she sent me the instructions. She is so nice! I agree about going slow and Look at your work in progress. I had to unsew half of the one I just made for my son for Christmas. He should have gotten it last Christmas! When I reaized my error I had to leave it for a while, 6 months actually, but it turned out well I think.

    Quilt4Joy, your quilt is stunning. Is there a tiny sashing between vertical rows or is it just an optical illusion? It looks like a darker line between them.
