Bits of BargelloAuthor: Karen Gibbs Category: Bargello, Piecing Publisher: Amer Quilters Society : May 19, 2009 ISBN: 9781574329834 Pages: 95 Tags: bargello | piecing |
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.
