What Are Bargello Quilts?

Bargello quilts are quilting patterns that are made up of strips of fabric. These strips of fabric 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 growing in popularity because they combine stunning style with beginner quilting patterns.

While bargello quilts contain a lot of smaller pieces of fabric, they are created by cutting out strips of fabric and sewing them together, meaning they only require straight stitches. These straight stitches allow for new quilters to piece these quilts together with relative ease. The best bargello quilt patterns are ones that 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.
