What Are Bargello Quilts?

Rainbow Bright Bargello Quilt

Bargello quilt patterns are made up of strips of fabric. These strips are pieced together to create a sense of movement in the design. These stunning types of quilts are often referred to as optical illusion quilts because of the way they seem to move with the eyes. A truly modern type of quilting, bargello quilt patterns are gaining popularity because they combine fun, contemporary style with simple, beginner-level patterns!

While bargello quilts contain a lot of smaller pieces of fabric, they're created by cutting out strips of fabric and sewing them together, therefore they only require straight stitches. Straight stitching makes it simple for beginners to make these quilts with ease. The best bargello quilt patterns use the fabric color and print to their advantage, expertly combining the piecing instructions with colors and textures that create a marriage of movement between the elements.
