Make mesmerizing bargello quilts with the easy-to-follow instructions and charts included in Strip-Pieced Bargello. It's like quilting by number!
* Sew strips of fabric together * Slice the strip sets into segments * Arrange segments into swaths of movement and color * Create the illusion of curves using only straight strips!
Start with as few as four (or as many as 24) fabrics to sew a table runner, wall hanging, tote, tree skirt, or larger quilt. Armed with Judith's tools, tips, and techniques, as well as her smart methods for staying organized, you'll be ready to make your first--or your 21st!--bargello beauty.
Judith Steele grew up in a small country town in the state of Victoria in southeastern Australia. She learned to sew and knit as a young child, and her sewing led to many dressmaking projects that included her wedding dress and many children's clothes. She achieved the degree of Bachelor of Computing at La Trobe University in Bendigo, Victoria, and then worked for the state government of Western Australia while pursuing her passion for patchwork and quilting. Judith was bitten by the quilting bug in 1999 when her older daughter showed her a scrap-quilt pattern. After winning a copy of Electric Quilt, Judith found that designing became much easier. A number of her bargello designs have been published in various Australian quilting magazines. Bargello quilts are her primary love, but she relishes experimenting with anything that she can design using EQ8 on her computer.Contact Judith Steele
