I am making steady progress on my Spiral Burst Bargello pattern by Becky Botello. This is really a fun and clever bargello pattern. Definitely intermediate difficulty level but the result is worth the extra work. I was trying for an elegant art deco look, but instead the quilt wanted to be a Pillar of Flame. Okay by me. I have all the tricky work done. The strip set has been sliced, dissasembled, rotated, repressed so the seams all line up, and reassembled. Now I just have to sew the slices together and add the borders.

So much fun I'm thinking of doing it again in cool colors.

This is coming together very nicely.  I like the rainbow of colors.  Very sharp choices.

Does anyone know where I can get info on how to choose fabric for a Bargello quilt?

Thank you,

Darla

Hi darla65. There is a small section in the book Twist and Turn Bargello on how to select fabric specifically for bargellos, and the book has some lovely patterns, although most are quite advanced in difficulty level. My favorite book on how to select fabric for bargellos is Colorwash Bargello Quilts by Beth Ann Williams. It has a very comprehensive section on how to select fabric, including what doesn't work and why. I refer to this book often when my fabric selection doesn't look right.

Oh I like it! It is just amazing on different one pattern can be just by using different colors. Awesome job!
