Announcing the Bargello Placemat/Tablerunner Quilt Along!

Are you ready for a new 2012 quilt along? This will be a short and sweet one!

I wanted a fun way to learn how to do the bargello technique without having to make a gigantic quilt. I tried to find a free tutorial on placemats but was unable to locate one! So I decided to make one myself since I found a group of folks that also wanted to learn bargello without tackling a huge project.

My quilt along will show you how to make 4 placemats and an optional table runner if you wish to complete your set. I’ll run each step on Friday.

This is teaching you the basic bargello technique.  If you are looking for a more elaborate pattern there are lots of great books out there with fun lightning strikes and twists to play with!

Update: The quilt along is finished but the tutorials remain if you want to work at your own pace and try bargello yourself!

1/6/12 – Step 1: Fabric selection and cutting your strips. Piecing your strip sets together.

1/13/12 – Step 2: Cutting your rows, exercising the seam ripper and piecing your rows together to make your tops

1/24/12 – Step 3: Finishing and quilting ideas

I do hope you will join us and have some fun learning the basic bargello technique!
