Bargello Quilt

Project Description

What are you most proud of? getting all those little seams to match up. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Make sure when you have all your pieces sewn together and before you cut them in strips, that you iron all the seams the same way. When I did mine, I ironed each seam opposite of each other thinking it would work, and it didn't. So after I cut all my strips, I had to then iron each and every little seam one at a time to fix them. That alone took me HOURS to do! I won't make that mistake again! (hopefully lol)

Q&A with SewAsMe

wow, perfect
SewAsMe answered:
Thanks so much. This is a favorite...I use it every night.
evie1203 asked:
wow!!! how long it take you to do it? BEAUTIFUL!!
SewAsMe answered:
Thank you. This one took me too long lol. Once I relaized I had to re-iron every little tiny seam, I put it away for a month or so. I really didn't even want to look at it after that. There was a point in time that I thought I'd just forget finishing this one, but I loved the fabric so much, I finally sat down in front of the TV with the ironing board, iron and all those strips. I'm glad I didn't give up on it! :)

Just beautiful, how these colors come together! Love it. Looks quiet difficult to me, to keep all the strips in order ...! I would rather not try it. Though it looks gorgious . Thanks for sharing!
SewAsMe answered:
Believe it or not, if I had just ironed the seams the correct way to begin with, it would have been the easiest and fastest quilt to put together. Give it a try, even on a small scale. You'll love the results.

Did you have to modify the Spiral Burst Bargello pattern to do yours. Yours looks different from the pattern to me...
SewAsMe answered:
I'm not sure why it showed the Spiral Burst Bargello for this. I actually found a picture of the one I made, and counted all the little squares to make mine.
