    I finished my Bargello! Thank you, Chele for posting a picture of your quilt. I wanted to do one as soon as I saw it.

    Not difficult at all. I'm new to quilting and I love bargellos. I made an error in typing...it's supposed to say Batik...not Batok!!

    I've never done a bargello. That's a beautiful quilt for sure. Is it different size squares that make the design?

    I love your bargello. I am in the process of working on one now too. Still have much wip on that though. I have a few things going and taking turns working on all of them.

    Bargello's are one of my favorites also and this is very, very nice.

    BTW, you didn't make a typo....... The wrong key jumped up and hit your finger, at least that's what I tell everybody.

    oh yes it's very nice! It it done in rows where you have the whole quilt laid out or is it done from the center outward?

    I really enjoy the color combination that you used. Makes quite a statement.

    Bargello quilts are done by sewing long vertical strip sets of different widths in about 17 colors. Then these strip sets are cut horizontally making a chain of 17 squares, one of each color. These chains are then sewn together in rows. The key is that these rows all start at the top with a different color so it makes a wavy design. You never actually sew little squares together! It just looks that way. I'm not good at explaining. It's clear in my mind, but you're probably more confused. I hope that gives enough info for you to go to the web site & read the actual instructions.

    Thanks for that link, I sort of understand better, it's for sure something I'll need to read again later (over and over again ;) )

    I saved the link to my favorites so I will have it. I plan to make a bargello quilt and this size would be a good one to start with. Thanks for providing that link.

    Thanks for the link Maxine. I've shopped at Seaside Quilting before and had forgotten about that free pattern. I'm definetely going to have to give the bargello a try. Yours really is pretty.
