Bits of Bargello

Bits of Bargello

The resurgence of interest in bargello brings us this colorful book that gives quilters a fresh look at a traditional technique. The eight projects incorporate sections bits of bargello into traditional pieced quilt designs adding fun, texture, and interest. Using bits of bargello as design elements creates the illusion of movement and depth through color and piecing. The clear instructions take the fear out of bargello. Each project utilizes a different bargello sequence, perfect for workshops in a classroom setting or for trying on your own. With a background in textile and sweater design, along with training in interior design, this busy long-arm quilter and pattern designer brings a wealth of experience and imagination to these projects. Karen, her husband, and their three young children live in Ballston Lake, New York.

A fine innovative direction — Review by James A. Cox
Overall Rating
BITS OF BARGELLO by Karen Gibbs offers eight quilt and wallhanging projects blending bits of bargello with traditional machine piecing and appliqué for maximum impact. Here are projects that use different bargello sequences to offer new ways of displaying this pattern. --James A. Cox, The Midwest Book Review, "California Bookwatch," January 2010.

Jump on the bargello bandwagon! — Review by QUILT Magazine
Overall Rating
Karen Gibbs goes beyond the typical quilt by demonstrating how to incorporate bargello sections into traditional pieced quilts. This strip piecing technique uses color placement to create a geometric design to add the illusion of movement and depth. Karen's detailed instructions and diagrams make this method easy, and eight projects offer inspiration for using this style of quilting. "QUILT Magazine", October/November 2009, page 98.
