this is my first Bargello quilt. I made it into a baby quilt with prairie points around the outer edges.
That's your first Bargello? How do you put the round ones together?
I have a wedge template that made it into a round shape. I had it all pieced onto a background and ready to quilt for my son and daughter in law for a wedding gift, when she came for a visit and had a quilt book and a selected quilt pattern she wanted me to make. So she has never seen this one or known that it had been intended for her and him. I took it apart and made it into a baby quilt with yellow swirl minkie on the back.
Cathy this is beautiful and so unique. What is minkie? I haven't heard the term before.
I'm a beginning quilter. I joined the Bargello group because I think the quilts are beautiful, but I have decided they are too complicated for me right now. After I have made several simple quilts, I'll give it a try. I enjoy seeing all the beautiful bargello quilts everyone has made. Also, does any one know of websites that have free bargello patterns?
Cathy; This bargello quilt is so beautiful. I would love to learn how to make the round ones. Keep up the good work.
Thanks. I actually bought a "liner for a xmas tree skirt~to be quilted" for another round one.
And was able to make a cape out of the extra strips for my 7 year old niece. she loved it.
Minkie is a super soft material that costs about $15 a yard. Very expensive but so soft for a baby. Ask at your local fabric store or even at wal-mart. But Wal-mart's isn't quite as soft.
