    Mine is 50" x 38". You can make a bargello any size that you want. The pattern for mine had it square and I didn't want square, so I shortened the width of the strips (from 3 1/2" to 2 3/4"). The book I took my pattern from was "Bargello Quilts" by Marge Edie. She teaches you the concepts as well as giving you precise patterns and also teaches you how to add variations into each of them. I do mine a little differently, in that, I use gridded fusible interfacing, in order to keep it square. So buy a book and get started. This is my second one. The first is my avatar. I may change to this one.

    in my opinion these bargello quilts are really a labour of love. Mine is still sitting waiting to be complete. It's been waiting 7 years now. Well done.

    I love the quilt. That is one of my dreams, to do a Bargello Quilt. Was it hard to do?

    No, they are not hard to do. They take a little more prep time than a regular quilt, as they are a QAYG type of quilt, although a much bigger one. This is the second one that I've done. The first one, I took a class using the book by Marge Edie "Bargello Quilts". I do mine a little differently, I use a gridded fusible interfacing pressed on over the batting, that way, it's much easier to keep things lined up. So I lay the backing down, use spray adhesive, place the batting, then PRESS (it stretches if you iron) the gridded interfacing, then pin to hold everything in place. Then you build your bargello from the center out. Hope this gives you some ideas. Get started, they are addictive

    Thanks! It was the Mystery Quilt from Hoop Sisters.
    Eliminate "can't" from your vocabulary and see what happens.
