Bargello Quilts,
Get the Move On
Joan Landin

Bergello quilts are defined by the appearance of movement within the patchwork, an optical illusion of waves flowing and ebbing that is created from strips sewn together in an offset mathematical pattern. _Quilting Daily

That is what I like about Bargello. I hope to show the basics of making a Bargello Quilt. We all like to take fabric, cut it up, sew it together differently and then cut it up again and sew it together again to make a pattern that is pleading. Everyone has different tastes - not one is wrong, just different. I want to show how fun it is to do. Come join us to learn the possibilities.
