Elegant and Easy Bargello

"This is one of my favorite quilts. Bargello-style quilts are fun to make because they look a lot more complicated than they are. You don’t have to cut a lot of tiny pieces–the fabrics are put together in strip sets that are then cut into various widths to create the design."

This quick and easy step-by-step guide is a fool-proof way to make a gorgeous bargello quilt. Bargello quilts may look complicated, but creating their beautiful and unique designs are a total breeze!

How to Make a Bargello Quilt

  1. First you are going to sew one jelly roll strips together, side by side in the color/pattern of your choice. You will then repeat with the second jelly roll in the same exact order. Press your seams open.

  2. Next, you will take the bottom row and sew it to the top row with right sides together. By doing this, you will form a tube-like fabric strip. (You will do this to both jelly rolls).

  3. Now you will start cutting the fabric pieces from your tube. When cutting, you are going to be moving the fabric top color one color down with each cut and undoing the new top color seam, which then you will open up to form a really long rainbow strip.

  4. Lastly, sew all of your strips together and you will have your lovely quilt top finished.
