One of the very first quilts I designed back in the early 1990's was a Bargello quilt. I had never made a Bargello quilt before but I did have this vision of one in my mind so I put it together and named it Bargello Blues. I sold the original and then many years later made a new quilt as I wrote my online workshop. This class still proves to be popular for those who are interesting in learning how to create their own Bargello designs or simply how to learn advanced Bargello piecing skills.
A lot of thought goes into designing a Bargello quilt. It is not just a matter of drawing a few lines or curves. As you design you will discover how one little change to your design can create a whole new look. One attribute that will make a big difference is whether you use staggered seams or matching seams. Let's take a closer look at these two options.
Every time I review my Bargello Seasons (online quilting class for Bargello beginners) to add updates, I am inspired to design a new Bargello quilt. It has been a while since I made one, in fact, I didn't even make one last year which is unusual for me. Does that mean I need to make two this year? Perhaps!
