Bargello quilts captivate with their dynamic flow of colors and patterns. But creating these beauties might seem intimidating at first. Fear not! Here's a breakdown of the process into three fundamental steps:

Sewing Horizontal Stripes: Begin by constructing sets of fabric strips sewn together horizontally. This creates a foundation for the vibrant design.

Slicing into Vertical Segments:  Next, take those horizontal strip sets and carefully cut them into vertical sections. The width of each section can vary, adding to the visual intrigue.

Shifting and Sewing: Now comes the magic! Reassemble the vertical segments, but with a twist.  Shift them up or down slightly compared to their original order. This is what creates the mesmerizing Bargello effect.

By mastering these three steps, you'll be well on your way to crafting stunning Bargello quilts.
