The Bargello quilt pattern might appear difficult, but is fun and easy to construct. A Design Wall is the perfect sewing room accessory to make a Bargello.

Four strips sets are stitched using 20 x 2 1/2″strips, and sewn into tubes. Trim selvage edges. Next, cut various widths of strips cut from the tubed strip sets. Then one set of stitching is removed.
