This is the first and probably only bargello quilt for me. The bargello technique is one of the most labor intensive approaches to making a quilt but I love how it came out. The way this works is to arrange your fabric strips in a dark-medium-light-dark-medium-light arrangement while paying attention to which fabrics touch. Then you sew strip sets together ending by sewing the first row to the last row - a tube is formed. Press everything flat and then cut slices of varying widths from the tube. Carefully unstitch each slice such that the resulting segments are staggered as to which piece is at the top. Then just sew the segments together and Ta-Da! a starburst quilt. Believe me, the 'Ta-Da' part was a bear - keeping the segments organized and wrangling all the seams to play nice together. Like I said - beautiful - but quite likely a 'one of a kind' piece for me. The binding is a bright orange double fold that is machine stitched to both sides for added durability. I call this one my Starburst quilt.
The quilting is custom - stitching in the ditch to outline the diamonds and just a little meander in the border. The batting is a medium loft to give the quilt some texture and make the fabric stand out more. This item was proudly made here in the United States.
