    I love the look of a bargello quilt but am wondering how to go about making one. Do you just sew strips together and do it that way? How wide? What lengths? Just experiment?

    I use 2 1/2 inch strips, usually 12 different fabrics. Press all seams one way. Then I cut the strips crossways, 1 inch, 1 1/2 inch , 2 inch and so on. There is a good tutorial on quilterstv. com
