Fascinating Bargello quilts consist entirely of straight seams and rectangular pieces, yet create the mesmerizing optical illusion of graceful movement, waves and curves. Bargello quilt making looks complex and difficult-but any beginner quilter who can sew a straight seam can master the necessary skills. It is also a technique that is easy to complete quickly and with confidence, thanks to pre-cut jelly rolls and author Karin Hellaby's clear how-to instructions. Karin works with both solid and printed fabrics, and varies her colour palette from monochromatic to riotously colourful. She explores the impact of offset seams for gentle curves and matched seams for dramatic arc and turns in the pattern. Readers will find the technique addictive, with lovely patterns that include pillows, a quilt bag, wall hangings, table toppers and lap quilts.
