Bargello Quilts

Bargello Quilt by Debbie Clemmons

Bargello quilts mimic a type of needlepoint that uses mathematical patterns to create a design. Often bright colors are used in these geometric designs.

Quilters use strip piecing techniques to make Bargello quilts.  Strips are sewn together then cut into strips of different widths.  The strips are organized into a pleasing design and then sewn together.

In the above Bargello quilt made by Debbie Clemmons, bright Hawaiian prints were used. The bottom photo is a close up of the quilt.  Each vertical was cut in different widths to get the final design.
