    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

    I have to reccomend the book Twist and Turn Bargello Quilts by Eileen Wright. That's the book I bought to try out bargello making and it explained things great, IMO. There are several patterns in it from small wall hangings and table runners, up to queen size quilts.

    This was my first bargello I made from a pattern in that book.

    Ohhhhh! Awe!!!!! I love that!!!!! That's the kind of Bargello that I want to make. It's funny too! That's the kind of pattern that I'm trying to draw up right now!!! What a coincidence!!!
    I made that one 12" block that I put the picture on of, and now I'm ready to make a quilt or wall hanging. I just don't have a pattern.......Yet!.....Soon!

    Gorgeous quilt! I'm going to have to add that book to my wish list! Fabulous! Awesome! I LOVE it! Here's a picture of my pattern so far.
