I made some bargello quilts back in the 1990s. My favorite now hangs in my cousin’s home. Most of the bargello quilts made during that time, while stunning, were fairly simple. Not so with Eileen Wright’s quilts. She takes the bargello technique and creates waves, twists and curves to end up with wonderful motion. If you are unfamiliar with the bargello technique, Eileen offers simple instructions to choose and organize your fabric and to create strip sets. She includes directions to complete 11 designs. With each she has a complete chart to follow so you can put the fabric strips in the correct order. If you are new to bargello, the last four projects in the book are suitable for learning the basic technique of sewing fabric strips into loops and then opening the seam between the correct rows to create the design. A gallery is included.
