iPhone-o-Gram! Scrappy Bargello Day!

Good afternoon from Plano, Texas – where workshop day number five is in progress!

We're having a blast sewing up panels for scrappy Bargello from 2 1/2 inch strips.

This quilt goes so quickly, and is so versatile – everyone is adjusting the quilt size to their own needs :-)

Got an overflowing box of two and half inch strips? This pattern will sew them up in no time flat!

30 students sewing up a storm and having a wonderful time – what could be better? :-)

Have a great afternoon, everyone!


  1. So vibrant. All kinds of colors abound. Everyone has a happy face so your workshop must be going down a storm as usual.

  2. Such a fun day! Love reading your blog. See you next year!

  3. I just finished one! With borders it took three afternoons and came out great, even though I couldn't exactly match all my seams. But, practice makes perfect!

  4. Love all the beautiful colors! I have always been afraid of doing one!

  5. I made one of these once from your pattern. It was so much fun! Now I am itching to do another after looking at these pictures.

    I used this pattern with red/white/blue fabrics. I gave it to a good friend of the family who is from Laos. I loved the way it turned out. Our friend loved it and was so excited to take it home to Laos and show it off. Seeing these pictures makes me want to get started on another one.


  7. I loved the Bargello in Plaid pattern from your first book. I recycled fabric from men's shirts. I'm planning another one from a fat quarter pack that I won as a prize. It's a fun, quick and satisfying pattern! Would be such fun to do it a retreat!
