Tips and Tricks for Making a Bargello Quilt

We show how to make Bargello quilts by making them in blocks as you do with other quilts.  With this systematic method, the quilt is fairly simple to make and economical in fabric using our patterns.  The blocking approach also means that the sewing is more manageable because you mostly have less fabric to push through the sewing machine.   First, you need the right equipment. Then, once you have a pattern, there are 10 steps:

  1. Purchase the materials listed in the pattern you have bought.  You may want to choose you own fabric colours when you do this.
  2. Cut the required number of strips, as given by the pattern for your quilt design.
  3. Sew the strips together to form strip sets.
  4. Cut the strip sets into columns.
  5. Make the blocks.
  6. Sew the blocks together.
  7. Add the borders.
  8. Layer and quilt.
  9. Label your quilt.
  10. Bind the quilt.
