Hi Arzella,

I dont think ive ever seen one of these quilts and would love to see how they're put together. Is there a book I need to get?

Hello Annie;

I first learned about the Bargello Quilts by watching Fons and Porter.  I'm quite sure there are a lot of books that give you instruction about how to put one together.  I am currently enrolled in a class at Quilt University on Bargello Quilting where you can learn as much as you can about the bargello quilts.  Take a look at our group picture at the top.  That is one example of a bargello quilt.  Of course you can also go on you tube and get instruction too.  There are a lot of different ways.  Once you have learned, you will love it.  To me I think it is a beautiful art form of quilting.

I took a class at the LQS.  Started a beautiful heart quilt, but it is now one of my UFOs.  I plan to get back to it this year.

Hello Arzella. When I first learned to quilt I took a lot of classes. A basic bargello was on of them. I arranged my pieces in a clam shell design. I have it quilted but have yet to add binding (don't like doing those). I'll look for it and post a photo. I just might entire it in the UFO challenge as well. It is almost 10 years old.

I'm working on my first Bargello quilt.  I'm not really using a pattern, just going by simple instructions on the basics that I've found online.  I'm hoping it turns to to be as easy as it looks.  Though I do admit, some that I've seen look quite complicated.

Margaret,

I just finished a small  hanging bargello quilt and it was quite easy.  I know you will do good at it.  I am doing classes at Quilt University here online to learn more about the bargello quilts.  This is a good place for you to check out.  Good luck with your sewing.  Keep us informed on your progress.

I made 2 bargello quilts some years back and plan one for this year for my daughter's SIL.  I've a book I'm going to use because I can't remember just how to go about it.

Thank you for this group. I am somewhat a beginner and have always been fascinated by Bargello. I am looking forward to all the help this group will be posting.

Hi Arzella,

Just found your Bargello Group with help from other members.  I have never done a Bargello but I find them fastinating.  Over this past weekend I started collecting some fabrics to start my first Bargello quilt.  Most patterns calls for 3/8 yds of fabric.  Is this really enough to buy if one has too straighten it etc.  The pattern I was thinking about is from a Billie Lauder book I just bought off Ebay.  Calls for 12 Fabrics.  I think I will check out the Quilt University that you have mentioned also....I'm a bit intimidated with the Bargello technique but want to learn.

Hi Arzella! 

I am thrilled to have found this group! I started a Bargello Heart Quilt ...WVU (West Virginia University) themed materials and colors. I have almost completed the top section of the heart, but am having trouble because one of my seams threw the whole thing off. Haha. 

But, I am not a quitter! I think the trouble began with my machine, actually. So I am waitiing to complete it when I get my new Baby Lock out of lay-a-way lol. 

Nice to meet you and I am looking forward to learning a lot in this group.
