    This is a beginners class in Bargello, learning all the Bargello basics while you make four samples using a different set of seasonal colours for each or combining all samples to make one large quilt. Techniques include staggered seams, matching seams, fractured strips and quilt-as-you-go.

    The four samples are also available as individual patterns.

    Each quilt requires extra fabric for borders, the amount depending on your choice of border style. Lesson One will contain a complete discussion of appropriate fabric types. If you have a large stash, you should be able to find what you need right at home since individual yardage requirements are small. Individual pieces measure 25" - 36" wide.

    Batting and backing – Again this depends on the border style, but to give you an idea, my quilts used a total of 40" x 105"

    Lesson One: Spring

    • SEVEN spring coloured fabrics - minimum of 6" full width OR fat quarter of each colour

    Lesson Two: Summer

    • NINE summer coloured fabrics - minimum of 6" full width OR fat quarter of each colour

    Lesson Three: Autumn

    • ELEVEN autumn coloured fabrics - minimum of 4" full width OR fat eighth of each colour
    • ONE fracture fabric - 1/2 yard

    Lesson Four: Winter

    • EIGHT winter coloured fabrics - minimum of 6" full width OR fat quarter of each colour
