    Two Fabric Bargello

    Pattern name is 'Two Fabric Bargello' by Susie Weaver. Susie will sell the pattern to you - there is a quilt shop that has some kits available. I picked out of my stash for this.
    I used a different fabric for the border but the bargello is two
    This is a super fun quilt to make and depending on your main focus fabric - the bargello effect can be subtle or significant!
    I did some serious feathers for the quilting on it -
    Thanks so much for looking!

    and part of the back... (Different fabric, same collection). this was one of the biggest inspirations for the quilting.

    Yes ma'am - ombre's or gradients. Susie recommends ombre's I believe. I didn't have any in my stash so I used what I had to try the technique. This was my starting fabric -

    I think the kits that one can get are all ombre's.

    Thanks for explaining the 2 fabric idea. I was also wondering. This looks really interesting.
    Never argue with an idiot. They'll drag you down the their level and beat you with experience.

    Now that is an interesting idea. I just spent most of this week trying to find 20 different fabrics to do my first Bargello (Surf Song). Geez that was tedious. I found most at 1 store and then went to 6 other stores to find the rest (and went to 2 of those stores 2 or 3 times!). Someone also posted a bargello this week in purples or lavenders that only used a few colors. It was gorgeous!

    Love it. I think while I was in Arizona 2 years ago I bought a kit will have to look lol. Great job!!!! I think the kit I bought was the red with the focus fabric being black.

    I love your quilt. I have an ombré fabric but before I order pattern I want to make sure I have enough fabric for this quilt. Could you please tell me how many yards of ombré it takes? Thank you

    very pretty, the quilting is amazing on it also
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Susie's pattern includes 3 designs - this one (checkmark) and swirl and lightening bolt. 1-3/4 yard of ombre for any of them.

    Thanks everyone for the kind words. If anyone needs Susie's contact info, please feel free to pm me.

    I understand this sooo much! I have a pattern for a bargello that has 42 fabrics - every time I'd pull it out, I'd be overwhelmed. That was part of the reason I was so intrigued with this idea - 2 fabrics? yeah, now that I've done this and have the concept in my head, I will make the other one sooner than later. This though, I love. I 'need' a reason to make this one in another colorway lol.

    You did some amazingly serious feather work on that quilt. Wow, wonderful. I don't understand the two fabric either.

    The other was black, these were the only 2 fabrics used in the bargello.

    Ombres make up beautifully too.
