    I've been looking at all your bargello pics and am just itching to do one! Could you all give some advice as to patterns & books for these? I'm also kind of skittish about getting the right fabrics together but I'll jump in soon!
    Thanks,
    Janet

    Hi Janet. This is the book I used when I made my *rainbow bargello:* Margie Edie's Bargello Quilts Her instructions were very clear and easy to do (I just went slowly at each step, read the instructions several times and chose fabrics I liked best. I'm am a rainbow in my spirit so I always end up picking rainbow colors. It's hard to stop with just *part* of the rainbow colors. :lol:

    I made my first one from a pattern on quiltville.com. It was super easy. I used a jelly roll I had.

    Barb's tutorial in the tutorial section is also very easy.

    That's a pretty pic but looks a bit overwhelming to me as a newby. I have used one easy pattern twice.

    Here's the link to the post with the pictures:

    Google Bargello Quilt Patterns and there are so many. There are so many different patterns out there. That is my favorite pattern so I have bunches of patterns.
