  • Re: Are you new to Bargello?

    Yes, I'm new to Bargello. I've always admired them, never done one. They look very complex. I love the ones with the most movement in them. I guess more colors is better but I have no idea where to start. Is it better to use Batiks for Bargellos?

  • Metallic Threads

  • Memory quilt using Ties

    Made this quilt for a friend of mine after her husband died suddenly. She gave me a bag of ties of his. My husband doesn't wear ties, and I remembered seeing a quilt made with ties before. So I combined a memory quilt with her husband's ties. What a perfect keepsake for my friend.

    Reverse applique technique done with black fabric atop a batik fabric. The design is sewn onto the black and then cut away to create the design you see here. This method was taught by the singing quilter - Cathy Miller at a class in Winnipeg, MB.
