Bargello in Spring
Designer: Ruth Blanchet
Finished Size: 31" x 36"
"Bargello in Spring" is the first of four quilts in our Bargello Seasons selection, a series of Bargello patterns which increase in difficulty from Spring through to Winter. The design is a simple bargello, ideal for beginners to get started learning the bargello techniques. This pattern consists of step by steps instructions with a full page layout grid to make instructions even easier to follow.
Like all our quilt patterns, "Bargello in Spring" includes details of how to quilt your project. For this beginner's project we use simple stitch-in-the-ditch quilting. How-to instructions are supplied in the pattern. For those who want a little more of a quilting challenge, we also include a spring flower quilting design that you can use to quilt the layers together.

Tips on Fabric Selection:
Take full advantage of our medium and use a mixture of cotton fabrics to give
the impression of texture and depth. For example, use floral, dyed and printed
fabrics all in one color run. Avoid a whole run of solid fabrics. For best results,
select one or two colors with shades in each color ranging from dark to light.
