Bargello! Free Pattern Plus tips on How to Tackle one!

Hello everyone!

My Rainbow Bargello has always been the biggest hit on my blog! I've received tones of emails asking for a little more depth into how to make one as far as cutting the strips, what is the tube, how do I know how much material to use and much more!

FaveQuilts has asked me to write a article for their website on a Beginners guide as well as make a quilt pattern.

https://www.favequilts.com/Techniques-and-Videos/How-to-Make-a-Bargello-Quilt-Pattern
 (Lovely Imaged Made by FaveQuilts)

The beginners guide will help you understand just about everything and how a Bargello works. It explains color palettes and how to choose fabrics for a Bargello, what the tube is, how to determine the movement by knowing what smaller and wider strips will do/look within your quilt! Lastly I explain how to put it all together!  After reading this article, you will see that there are wonderful tips and tricks to make a Bargello quilt fast and easy. Click here to see it.


Now if you understand how to make a Bargello and you would also like a FREE BARGELLO quilt pattern then click here to view the Blue Bargello that I have designed as well for FaveQuilts!

Cotton Cuts Mystery Quilt Along - Month 1

Yesterday I received my fabrics and clues for month 1! I was so excited I had to piece everything together right away! lol I choose the Summer in the Keys color way for the large quilt which are fabrics from Blueberry Park and Kona Cottons. Like I mentioned in my last post is they PRE CUT the fabric pieces and they even trimmed off those pestie dog ears for you already too, yayy lol Everything went together easy and fast! So if you have very little time to quilt you'll only need like 30mins - 1hr at most to piece this months together.

Here are some photos of the pre-cut fabric and also my finishing pieces. I hope you all will join, and if you do share with me your progress!

Cotton Cuts Spring Puzzle Mystery Quilt!

Have you heard of Cotton Cuts Spring Puzzle Mystery Quilt Along? If not then here is some info on it! 

"Every month for ten (10) months you'll receive...
  • PRE-CUT pieces of fabric (triangles, squares and strips - they will do all the cutting, even those pesky corners on your triangles - so you don't have to cut a thing!)
  • Instructions turning the pieces of fabric into puzzle pieces. This isn't a block of the month, but rather puzzle pieces of the month!
In the tenth (10th) month, you'll receive the key to putting together the puzzle..."

It had me at PRE-CUT! lol This year one of my goals was to join and do some Mystery Quilt Alongs or a Quilt Along in general. And this one had me a pre-cut PLUS their fabric selections to choose from are just beautiful! It was hard to choose from and some of my favorites where even SOLD OUT! So if this strikes your interest click here to their website and order soon.  

I really loved that they had options of fabric selections to pick from. Doing a Mystery quilt along can sometimes be hard to choose what fabrics to select since you don't know what the out come will be and Cotton Cuts solved that issue for you! Here is what I picked below. Fabrics are from Robert Kaufman's Blueberry Park line in these beautiful beachy, soft, whimsy fabrics. They are calling this "Summer in the Keys"


Here is some more info in which you can also find on their website here. Boxes will start shipping out TODAY but you can still get a jump on it and order your first box and still be caught up with everyone. =D Also, there are two sizes for the finished quilt top - 48" x 60" and 72" x 72". I choose the larger box because I like big quilts. =P One more thing that was my favorite is, Cotton Cut mentions that their is NO WASTE! 

So I hope you can join us and of course I will be posting blogs and photos of my process threw this quilt along.

Finished Size is 55" x 64".  This pattern is available in 5 quilt sizes; Crib, Throw, Twin, Full/Queen, and King which is available on my website as a PDF download later this evening since I'm saying my vows early this morning. lol
