The easiest way to place strips to form a bargello is to work on a design wall (or even on the floor!). You can lose yourself in the artistry it is such fun. You will quickly see the bargello wave or shape come into play. Renata Greene decided to try one for herself and came up with this striking design. There are 17 purples and 10 reds in the bargello part, and Renata added another 5 purples for the border and back.

Light strips lay against deep reds that background the top of the heart. Dark blues create depth in the heart with dark purples cascading down to shades of red.

Rich purple tones from dark to light radiate through this Bargello. However, if purple is not your favorite, choose your color to start with and add 17 tones of that color.Then bring in the complimentary tone as the second color. Create the bargello adding colors that gradually flow one into the next.

A beautiful wall quilt that will surely become a feature in the room. This quilt would make a stunning backdrop at a wedding table, and the perfect wedding gift.
