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!
If you have ever made a Bargello quilt before you will know that it is made up of color runs (or shades of color ranging from light to dark, or vice versa). Often I use two or more colors in a Bargello quilt, but sometimes only one. I'm wondering what I should do this time. Perhaps you can help me decide which group of colors to choose from.
I have a nice range of green...
or blue and yellow. I love the 'bridge' fabric that has blue and yellow which joins the to colors nicely together.
or perhaps I could go "outside the box" and try something different, like browns.
Interesting, I just used the 'bridge fabric from the blue and yellow group here with the browns to make a brown and blue combination which looks rather good too.
What do you think? Maybe I will keep searching and see what else I come up with.
If you have not made a Bargello before and are interested in trying, join me in my online workshop - it's one of my favorites. We make four different Bargellos (I use four different fabric groups to represent the four seasons) but you can use any colors you like.
