    I love the creativeness with Bargello patterns! Surf Song is AMAZING!!!

    I’ve never tried one of these, but I love how they look. Thanks for sharing that video – that makes it look so simple!

      I know – doesn’t Angela’s video make it seem like the easiest thing?! And the different widths of cutting the strip sets seems to make all the difference in the movement. ~smile~ Roseanne

    Hi Roseanne, Bonnie Hunter also has a free bargello pattern … http://quiltville.blogspot.ca/2005/06/scrappy-bargello.html … I’ve made this a couple of times in a more controlled colour pallet. The first one was with fall colours and the 2nd one in blues … but I absolutely love Josh’s quilt!!!! The colours, the movement … sew very pretty!

      Hi Gail,
      I should amend my post and include BH’s pattern . . . just to have both offered. Thank you for letting me know! And I totally agree with you on Josh’s quilt. ~smile~ Roseanne

    I lean more toward creative license on a Bargello. It’s on my list to make, but way down toward the bottom!

    I didn’t know Bargello had an original inspiration of flames, that’s interesting! I usually see them in blues and they simulate the flow of water, and that’s very beautiful.

    • Roseanne says:

      Hi Liz,
      I agree – I never really thought about the history behind the pattern so to speak. I agree about the cooler colors in blues for water. I have mostly seen those. ~smile~ Roseanne

  6. Roseanne, I say do you own thing! Why in the world should they always be made the same way!!! We have creative license to express ourselves through our art and if that means changing up a pattern then go for it. I’ve never made one of these quilts but I do like seeing them…especially watching the video by Angela Walters. So interesting! Thanks for sharing! 🙂

      Hi Cindy,
      I think I’ll give it a try in a table runner and see how it goes. I seem to be in a table runner rut right now, so I may as well add one more to the mix. ~smile~ Roseanne

    In the past I loved Bargello, but now I can leave it. I think our tastes evolve and who knows, maybe one day I will find the perfect design and use it.

    I haven’t been thrilled with Bargello quilts . . . but. . . I’ve found a Barello design I really like. It will be made in flame fabrics which I don’t have yet. That will be my project for New Years weekend. I’m still working away on my ‘old’ projects make slow progress but it is progress. I thought of the start new projects next year keeps me motivated.

    • Roseanne says:

      Hi Gretchen!
      I can’t wait to see what caught your fancy and your fabrics. That is a long time to wait, but I sure can understand getting those older projects finished and out of the way. Clear the path for new creative fun. ~smile~ Roseanne

    I also have not been drawn to making a Bargello. I do love Christine’s creative make for her son. It’s beautiful.

    • Roseanne says:

      Hi again,
      I think Josh’s quilt is just gorgeous. You can just see the movement in it and feel the waves coming in and going out. Maybe we both can try the table runner?! We seem to be on the same quilting path, so if you decide to make one let me know! ~smile~ Roseanne

    I have seen this Bargello in the finished state but didn’t know there was a free pattern, thanks for the link.
    I have only pieced one other bargello-it’s like an accordion when you are done!

    • Roseanne says:

      Hi Vicki,
      I haven’t been drawn to this pattern at all until I saw Christine’s that she made for her son. And the table runner looked like something I could make – the different widths of the strip sets are kind of cool too. Enjoy the free pattern! ~smile~ Roseanne

    […] to a few free patterns.  And a picture of a pretty awesome one in blues. You can see that post HERE.  The table runner pattern is CUTE … but I’m resisting … or at least trying […]
