How to Bargello quilt (with a twist) + fabric giveaway!

Detail of Argyle bargello quilt

What is a Bargello quilt? Surprisingly, even with all the dramatic sways, bends, and waves of color and texture in Bargello quilts, they’re a straightforward type of quilt to make. Start with strip piecing; sprinkle a little color-by-number ease. From there, tubes, slices, and rows transform those simple strips into stunning quilts fit for an art gallery.

Making strip sets for bargello quiltsIf your dream of creating Bargello quilts skews nightmarish when you think about how to bargello quilt, you’re not alone. Let’s be honest: that’s a lot of tiny squares and rectangles! But Eileen Wright wrote her second book on the subject, More Twist-and-Turn Bargello Quilts, specifically for her students who were begging her to write it, and her friendly teaching style is key. If you appreciate the ease and speed of strip piecing, Bargello quilting is right up your alley. Same technique—just more of it!

Take a look, below, at some of Eileen’s Bargello patterns from her new book. One fan request? Smaller projects. Eileen came through, making the learning curve even more manageable. So grab your rotary cutter and start stripping that stash: you can do this!


Timeless TreasuresGIVEAWAY ALERT! Our friends at Timeless Treasures have generously donated a pack of beautiful Tonga Treats—a collection of twenty 6″ x 44″ strips—from their “Tonga Sea Glass” batiks line to give away to you for your next Bargello quilt! Find out how you can win it at the bottom of this post.

Excerpt from More Twist-and-Turn Bargello Quilts by Eileen Wright

Eileen WrightBargello quilts are made by cutting fabric strips to the required width, sewing the strips together in the  predetermined sequence, and then cutting the strip sets into slices. When the slices are sewn together, the beauty of the pattern emerges, but it all starts with building strip sets.

Choosing the fabrics for any new project is the most exciting part for me—except for seeing the quilt actually finished. But we have to make a start before we can get to the end. Don’t be intimidated when you read that you need 20 or more fabrics for some of these quilts. There are so many ways to reach the desired goal. When choosing fabrics for your quilt, trust your instincts and create your own vision of any of these designs. Let your creativity loose. There are no rules when it comes to the fabrics you use in your quilts. You only have to please yourself.

Let me tell you about some of the quilts in More Twist-and-Turn Bargello Quilts.

Argyle bargello quilt
“Argyle” is a masculine quilt, reminiscent of the sweaters I used to knit my fellas, made in green for all those readers who asked for a green quilt. This one has my friend Brenda’s name on it.

Island Sunrise bargello quilt
“Island Sunrise.” A bed-sized version of “Island Sunset” was the most frequent request I received following the release of my first book, Twist-and-Turn Bargello Quilts. Based on my experience with twisted bargello quilts, I find that simply enlarging the strip widths in an existing design is not very effective. This is a complete redraft of the smaller quilt from my last book.


“Glacier Bay” was made as soon as I returned home from a cruise to Alaska. Compared to pictures I had seen, the glaciers I saw on the cruise were shrinking and covered in pollution. Not such a pretty sight. I felt compelled to make a quilt in memory of what the glaciers used to be.


“Misty Morning” is reminiscent of the early morning sun rising through the swirls of mist over the ocean, which was my view from the deck at my condo in Nanaimo, Canada. I no longer live there, so I’m so glad I captured and framed so many of the amazing ocean shots from that place.

Bargello for Baby quilts
“Bargello for Baby.”
Over the years, many quilters have asked me for a bargello-for-baby design. With only 10 fabrics and three strip sets, this little quilt is quick and easy to make. I chose soft pastels, one for a girl and one for a boy. I can even see this stitched in shades of cream for a christening quilt.


“Love Song” fulfills a number of requests I’ve had from quilters. It’s a black-and-white quilt made from fat quarters and, at 30½" square, finishes much smaller than the quilts I usually make. A touch of appliqué nails down the theme.

Bargello Bed Runner and Banded Pillowcases
“Bargello Bed Runner and Banded Pillowcases.”
When I was first asked for a bed-runner design, I didn’t even know what a bed runner was. Now, I think I need a duvet for the winter so I can show off this project across the foot of my own bed. Instead of making matching pillows, I thought matching pillowcases would be different. I’ve come to prefer special pillowcases for the extra pillows on my bed.

In More Twist-and-Turn Bargello Quilts I share the methods that work best for me. I encourage you to use what you like and create your own best methods along the way. There is always more than one right way to do things in quilting.

  • I have never made a bargello quilt but would like to try. I love the black and white one shown- think it could make a great quilt!

    —Mary Ann Harpe on July 25, 2013
  • A bargello quilt has been on my "to make" list since the first time I saw one, about 2 yrs ago now. They seem so intimidating to this self-taught quilter….this book might just put them within reach!

    The Reader on July 25, 2013
  • I have always been amazed by the movement of Bargello quilts but have not made one yet! This would be the push to get me going on a beautiful pattern! Thanks for the chance!!

    —Mimi on July 25, 2013
  • I have never made a Bargello quilt before. I’ve always thought it looked a little overwhelming and challenging. It is so beautiful once put together though. So I might give it a go 🙂

    Jocelyn on July 25, 2013
  • Glacier Bay is gorgeous! The last time I attempted Bargello it was an ugly mess! I could use tips and tricks and would love to make something like Glacier Bay. Thank you

    —Mary Flynn on July 25, 2013
  • Never made a Bargello. It is on the to do list. I love the 3-D effect that the quilts have.

    —Quilting Tangent on July 25, 2013
  • Bargello is fascinating. Six of our guild members put together Surf Song from Eileen’s first book. It was so much fun to see the waves of colour emerge. That experience addressed my want to make a bargello quilt but I was sure glad to have the help of friends. I am very glad that Eileen has published a book of smaller projects. I am certain I will undertake one of these projects on my own.

    —Audrey on July 25, 2013
  • I sew want to make one of these and have for a little while now. These quilts in todays post are all amazeing. Thank you for the chance to enter. Those tonga treats are gorgeous….So beautiful they are almost sinful…

    —Barb on July 25, 2013
  • I have never made one of these and have always wanted too.. those colors are amazing and just up my color alley.

    —Von Biggs on July 25, 2013
  • A bargello quilt is on my bucket list for sure. I love the sea glass fabrics–they remind me of collecting sea glass as a girl on the pacific coast.

    —Elli on July 25, 2013
  • I made a few bargello quilts using the Bonnie Hunter scrap method, but found them to be to easy once I mastered the same cuts, and such. I am on to bigger things, in making bargello now, so can’t wait to try these types of swoops and swirls!Awesome photos, so will be trying out one of them soon!

    —Karen on July 25, 2013
  • I’ve made a bed runner using bargello before but I’d love to try a bigger quilt using the technique. Think I’d start with the baby quilt in pink as a good friend is due in a couple of months then work my way through and try them all!!!

    leigh sewing diva on July 25, 2013
  • I purchased a pattern and all the fabric to make a bargello quilt, but have not gotten up the courage to cut the fabrics yet. I’m afraid I’m gonna wreck it!?!?!?

    —Lori O'Shea on July 25, 2013
  • I want to make them ALL! 8 )

    Grace on July 25, 2013
  • Love love love the Argyle quilt. I bought a bargello book but was so afraid to try. This one makes me want to start now making it. It is very amazing!

    —Cathy Ritter on July 25, 2013
  • I have never made a bargello quilt but have wanted to since seeing one my neighbor made for her daughter as a wedding gift. I would love to try the baby quilt as I am getting my first 2 grandchildren this year!

    —Darleen on July 25, 2013
  • Made one Baby Bargello and one table runner. Now ready for a bigger and more complicated size. Can’t wait to create one of these masterpieces!

    —Ann Worsham on July 25, 2013
  • Beautiful quilts! I will admit I’ve always loved the Bargello quilts, but have been afraid to make one myself. The entire reason I got interested in quilting was for three reasons; my love of 3 different quilt types, the hexagon, the Dresden Fan, and the Bargello quilts. Ok, also because I wanted to learn the proper quilting techniques to make any quilt but mostly because those three quilts are on my list of ‘must make someday’. Anyone know when ‘someday’ ever comes? LOL

    —VickiT on July 25, 2013
  • I have seen Eileen’s incredible quilts in person, and one cannot imagine the visual and emotional impact of their beauty. To make one is to create art with love. With Eileen’s superbly clear instructions you do not need to be a master quilter ,just organized, precise and eager. Let the magic grow strip by strip!

    —Brenda on July 25, 2013
  • Never made a bargello quilt but have thought many times in doing it. I have made several trips around the world using the strip method so wouldn’t be too big a leap.

    —Nancy R on July 25, 2013
  • HELLO, I HAVE NOT USED THIS PATTERN>VERY INTERESTING!
    THINK I’LL ADD IT TO THE "TO DO LIST"! THANKS!

    —Linda on July 25, 2013
  • I love them.I have already made 2 of them.I learned with a small one and then afterwards I made the big one . It´s a big satisfation when you see grow your "child" but take care at the moment of sewing not to mistake with the colors. I put it on a sheet and pend it to a window before sewing it and so I saw the mistakes.The only thing I don´t like so much is quilting by hand it´s very heavy with all the fabrics.I made one of the quilts of Eileen and by this way thanks for the pleasure I had making it .I repeat, els

    —els on July 25, 2013
  • Love the look of the bargello quilts! I have made one small one, and would love to do another of this type of quilt.

    —Diana Allen on July 25, 2013
  • I have made a bargello quilt before. In fact I made a bargello heart quilt for my son’s wedding. These bargello quilts are just beautiful! I was just wondering what type of quilt to make next…I think any of these would be just the ticket. Especially Argyle. Thanks for the chance to win this amazing book…fabric, too!

    —Janet frank on July 25, 2013
  • I dearly love bargellos and had always wanted to do one! In March I went to a retreat in Tomball TX and the AWESOME designer that hosted it did a mystery quilt pattern that was a bargello! I was SOOOOO HAPPY!!!

    —Sherry on July 25, 2013
  • I would love to win the book or the fabric. I’ve made Infinity from her first book and it’s absolutely stunning. The instructions were very clear and easy to follow. Alternatively, the fabrics are beautiful and I’d be happy if I won that.

    Lurking Linda on July 25, 2013
  • I made a bargello quilt once. it was easier than I thought and the flow and movement of the colours affected my fellows. they both really liked it and my son Kevin is constantly asking me how his bargello quilt is coming along…. one day soon – it will happen….

    —Monique on July 25, 2013
  • I have never made a bargello quilt but is definatly on my to do list. As all of my kids have said they want one I could end up doing several!!!

    —Bernadette McAllister on July 25, 2013
  • I’ve never made a bargello quilt before, but it’s on my list as soon as I get my sewing room set up again! Love the play on color and the illusion of curves!

    —Darcy Hansen on July 25, 2013
  • I never made a ‘Bargello’-quilt because I’m too scared to begin. I’m always impressed and intimidated by the looks of an Bargello…. I hope I will win, then the book can free me from my fright for these gorgeous quilts. Thank you for playing along!
    Greetings Margo

    Margo Kool on July 25, 2013
  • I made my first bargello for a friend in autumn colors. She loved it and her sister loved it too. So my friend asked if I would make another one for her to give her sister as a gift. Of course, I did.

    Would like to one of these twisted ones for me.

    Tammy from quilt-pictures.com on July 25, 2013
  • I am currently making a Bargello quilt from the first book and have ordered this book on Amazon. I have always wanted to make one.

    Valerie on July 25, 2013
  • I recently participated in a Mystery Weekend with designer Jessica Smith and the result was a beautiful twisted Bargello. My choice of black, white and red fabrics made the result amazing!
    Would love to try some of these beauties, however, and the giveaway would certainly encourage me to start!

    Lynn Reynolds Makrin on July 25, 2013
  • Pretty new to Quilting….and feel kinda overwhelmed bout trying a Bargello….. Absolutely AWESOME tho….definitely going on my "Wanna/Gotta Do! List"!!! 🙂

    —Lori Morton on July 25, 2013
  • I haven’t made a Bargello quilt – yet – but it’s definitely on my list! These are all so beautiful, especially love Island Sunrise and Glacier Bay. Would love to win the Sea Glass batiks and put them to use. Thanks for the chance to win!

    —KrisTX on July 25, 2013
  • I haven’t made a bargello quilt – I love the movement of the quilts you have shown. Looks like fun!

    —Kelly Wenhold on July 25, 2013
  • I have never made a bargello quilt but have always wanted to try one. Choosing the fabrics to me would be the hardest part and to win a set of strips would be a wonderful start and motivation to get around to it

    —Judy on July 25, 2013
  • I just recently finished my first bargello quilt – a king-sized Bonnie Hunter Scrappy Bargello! Now I’m ready to try one that is a bit more "swirly"…thanks for the opportunity to win this package – maybe I’ll get lucky and be able to do that next bargello sooner rather than later 🙂

    —Diane on July 25, 2013
  • made a lovely pink wall hanging but I haven’t tried a more complex pattern. did buy one pattern but haven’t gotten the fabric to start it. These packets would help get me motivatied.

    Lavonne on July 25, 2013
  • Yes, I have made a heart Bargello. I really enjoyed making it. It’s about time to make another Bargello!!!!

    —Sonya wood on July 25, 2013
  • I have made bargello quilts – my favourite, so far, is a scrappy floral bargello. I do intend to make more and to get this book.

    —Carol C on July 25, 2013
  • I am currently hand quilting my Bargello quilt! After my mother passed away I brought homey several of her challis skirts. When I decided to make a bargello with a twist quilt, I chose one of the skirts to be the focal fabric. It was a fun quilt to piece and now I am on the last leg of my memory quilt.

    —Barbara on July 25, 2013
  • I have never made a bargello quilt, but would love to try!!

    —Chris Archer on July 25, 2013
  • I have never made a bargello quilt but would love to learn. They are so beautiful!!

    —Theresa C. on July 25, 2013
  • These quilts are so beautiful that they take my breath away, but I just do NOT have the confidence yet to make one. I have a hard time just deciding the fabric and pattern. It would be nice to have the fabric "picked out"; I could start it right away!

    —Judy on July 25, 2013
  • I have made 1 bargello wall hanging it is a heart inside of a star, very pretty. I love the way the bargello quilts come to life. I do have a couple more patterns that I would like to make. I really enjoy the method. I would really love to win the book and the fabric pack.

    —Denise M on July 25, 2013
  • I made bargello placemats as a gift for my sister from what I believe is one of Eileen’s books (don’t have it handy to confirm). It was quite fun once I got the hang of it. I had planned on making more placemats until I saw that her cats sleep on them! So, I’m going to make myself something bargello instead. Love the ideas in her new book especially the baby quilts. Always seem to need those.

    —krafty kc on July 25, 2013
  • always been on my list!!

    —Cathy Weis on July 25, 2013
  • I made a lap size bargello, similar to island sunrise, about five years ago. I loved the process and found that an organized workspace is probably the key (at least for me) to a successful result. I loved my quilt and it remains a favorite today.
    Once I started my quilt, I got so excited that I worked through the night, without realizing how late it was, and finished the quilt top in one night. I was sooo excited. Still brings back good memories every time I look at the quilt.
    I think it’s about time to make another!
    Thanks for the fun.

    —Darcey Peters on July 25, 2013
  • I have never made a bargello quilt but I want to so bad. I’ll admit that I’m intimated by how difficult it looks so I keep putting it off. Hopefully one of these days I will get up the nerve and make one cause I just love them.

    —Joanne O'Neal on July 25, 2013
  • I’ve loved the bargello patterns for a very long time. They have been on my to-do list since I first saw them and sadly, have not made it to the top yet…I love the look of batiks for this! The quilts shown were are spectacular! As another poster has said, I’ve made TATW quilts, strip style.

    —Sue Vermeland on July 25, 2013
  • I never made a Bargello quilt but have admired them since I started quilting about 3 years ago. I would love to make one myself but I don’t have the courage yet. Maybe one day ?? I LOVE the Glacier Bay!

    —Tineke on July 25, 2013
  • WOW…Very, very and very gorgeous. I have seen these before; but, I have never made one. It looked really hard to do; but, the more I look at it, the more I know that I could make one. So, I have now added this to my "to do list". Thank you so much for showing us these beautiful patterns and gorgeous out-of-this-world colors.

    —Lynn G. on July 25, 2013
  • Never made one, never thought it was in my capabilities really! Would really like to try one though, should be on my bucket list and these gorgeous strips would certainly be my motivation.

    —Sandra on July 25, 2013
  • "My next quilt is going to be a bargello quilt," I said to myself several years ago at a quilt show when I saw my first bargello. As I tried to select fabrics and understand how to make one, I chickened out and choose a different quilt pattern. "I’ll try it soon," I said to myself. Another day and another quilt show, I’m inspired again, then I chicken out again. Not sure why. As a self-taugh quilter with more experience I think I’m finally ready to tackle it. I just need the right book….

    —Pam B on July 25, 2013
  • I’ve made a small Bargello quilt from Eileen’s first book…lots of fun! Would love to try another…

    —Judy W on July 25, 2013
  • For many years I created hand-appliqued, hand-quilted projects but with a full time position and a 2nd return to college for a new career, I am looking to create simple yet bold, beautiful and expressive projects for friends and family and bargello seems to be the perfect answer! I look forward to the opportunity to try my hand at more machine piecing and at building my stash with differnt kinds of fabric choices!

    —Patty Hammond on July 25, 2013
  • I have always been a bit intimidated by bargello, but those baby quilts look like just the place to start!

    Thanks for the draw!

    —Tama on July 25, 2013
  • Bargello is one of the quilts I have yet to try – not because I haven’t wanted to, but because I’ve never had the right combo of graduated colors a truly amazing Bargello requires. This bundle (in one of my favorite color ways) would certainly get me started!

    —Linda on July 25, 2013
  • The Sea Grass colors my favorite! Would love to make
    a Quilt in those colors. Thanks

    —Judy on July 25, 2013
  • I made a simple bargello quilt years ago and really liked it. I’d love to try some of the variations like those shown from the book. Thanks for the chance to win!

    —Lisa Marie on July 25, 2013
  • I’ve never made a bargello quilt, but it is on my to do list. The colors in fabric are some of my favorite and would go perfectly in my bedroom.

    —Mary Hanson on July 25, 2013
  • My goal for the year [2013] is to complete a bargello wallhanging for Christmas. The seafoam colors are wonderful and they are what I envision for my sewing room’s wall—greens and blues for calming—shells for my other hobby!
    Aloha!
    Ellen

    —Ellen Owens on July 25, 2013
  • It is in my vocabulary but I haven’t explored making one–it is definitely on my "to do" and "learn about" list–a good chance to explore color variety.

    —Caroline Lincoln on July 25, 2013
  • Never thought that I would ever want to make a bargello quilt – until I had to make a set of 6 placemats for a challenge!!!!!! Fun fun and more fun!!!! I enjoyed it and just looking for a chance and excuse to make a quilt!! Thanks for the chance to win a beautiful book and the gorgeous fabrics to make it special!!!

    —Janet E on July 25, 2013
  • I have made three bargello quilts. One was ribbons in motion which I had framed instead of quilting and it hangs in my living room. People are always amazed when the realize that it is fabric and not a painting. Certainly much easier to make than people think. Love them.

    —Michele Gill on July 25, 2013
  • I’ve been quilting for 13 plus years and i have not had a chance to make one of these beatiful quilts, I do think it would be challenging and would love to have a chance to try,

    thanks

  • I have not made a bargello for many years but this one has piqued my interest. Would make a great quilt for our church raffle this fall.

    —Lois Gern on July 25, 2013
  • I love the look of Bargello and would like to make a Bargello quilt someday but the thought of picking out the graduated colors is scary.

    —Deb Mac on July 25, 2013
  • Always impressed by the look of bargello, but very intimidating to choose the fabrics "correctly" and this would help so much with that process!

    —Karen Kaderlik on July 25, 2013
  • Retirement is in the near future as is attempting to make a beautiful Bargello quilt.

    —Carolyn Young on July 25, 2013
  • I’ve wanted to make a Bargello for a long time. The fluidity of movement always makes me want to move right along with it, although I might not be able to sit long enough to make one because of the having to move right along with the designs. the twists and turns like on Island Sunrise intrigue me.

    —Carla on July 25, 2013
  • I have had your first twist and turn book for over a year. I have been nervous about starting. Also I am not brave with my fabric choices. But I am ready to start collecting and just jump in and do it. Hoping to have one done for a Christmas gift.

    —Candee on July 25, 2013
  • After making a queen-sized wedding quilt for my best friend’s daughter in Australia, the wedding was called off. My girlfriend felt terrible knowing the cost of all the special materials I’d gathered to tell Ali & Ben’s story in the quilt top. I journeyed to Australia a year later to bring Ali’s brother and his new wife their wedding quilt, and I felt I had to have something for Ali. So I surprised Ali with my first four seasons bargello quilt. Shortly after I arrived, Ali went out and bought all new bedroom furniture and proudly displayed her new bargello quilt on it.

    —Jac T on July 25, 2013
  • I now want to make one since I have learned they are not tiny pieces sewn together! They are beautiful and full of life/movement/feeling. Thanks for taking the fear out of them.

    —Cindy Wienstroer on July 25, 2013
  • I helped my daughter make a simple bargello quilt (her 2nd quilt ever!), but my bargello is still on my to do list! I really love all the versions, but the black and white one is so striking!

    —Darlene B on July 25, 2013
  • I made a Bargello Tablerunner once but never tried a quilt. Had to quilt work due to health issues now would love to make one. The Tonga fabrics are beautiful and I am sure they would look beautiful in a Bargello quilt.

    —Diane F on July 25, 2013
  • I love bargellos, and long to make one, but hesitate on fabric choices. The beautiful colors in this packet would be such a help.

    —Susan Stefun on July 25, 2013
  • I have just made my first bargello style project (using gradation fabric, sort of cheating) and all it did was whet my appetite to try a more intricate pattern. The Misty Morning project would be at the top of the list, then the Argyle, then…..

    —Martha on July 25, 2013
  • In the begining of my quilting I would create tradtional quilts but recently have been trying to break out of my usual patterns and use my creative talents to create my own patterns. I am expamding my quilt knowledge and have created some amazing quilts. I feel this bargello will add another depth to my creative talent.

    —Patty W. on July 25, 2013
  • I have made a Bargello Christmas quilt many years ago. It may be time to go back and make another Bargello Quilt. I love the design of Bargello. The fabrics in the Tonga Treats look yummy.

    —Diana Cruz on July 25, 2013
  • Looks like a gorgeous quilt to make; would love to try it!

    —Janet Kelley on July 25, 2013
  • I just love the bargello patterns! It is definately on my want-to do "very soon" list. I have made over 30 quilts and given most away to family & friends. I have about a half dozen family quilts I want to make yet & at least one of them will be a bargello! I love the Tonga Sea Glass batiks line!

    —Shirley on July 25, 2013
  • I love bargello quilts. A few years ago I taught a quilting class to ladies from other countries that didnt’t speak English or know how to sew. They weren’t sure about quilts and some had never seen one. It was a simple bargello pattern made from squares but the results were wonderful and they became more creative as time went by. I’d love to receive your new book and try some of these beautiful patterns.

    Sue

    —Sue Williams on July 25, 2013
  • I love the fabric and would like to try one of these quilts.

    —Teresa on July 25, 2013
  • I’ve always wanted to but never actually made one. Thanks for the preview and giveaway!

  • Bargello has always fascinated me. I love the geometry. These twist and turn quilts are stunning and are especially pleasing to my eye. I am new to quilting – very, very new, and this type of quilt is quite high on my list of things I want to try.

    —Pat K on July 25, 2013
  • A bargello has always been on my to do list I have seen so many displays and the show and tells from classes – wow some of the colors make them so spectacular. Yes, this is surely on my to do list

    —Anne on July 25, 2013
  • Fairly new to quilting. To have the strips already cut would definitely inspire me!

    —Lu on July 25, 2013
  • I have never made one as it does seem quite intimidating, but heck, I think I’m ready to give it a try.

    —Pat S. on July 25, 2013
  • I love all things Batik, so would love to win the beautiful fabric. And what beatiful projects to use them on! That would be an awesome prize package.

    —Shari K. on July 25, 2013
  • Got to love these. I made a Bargello strip in a qult once…not as pretty as these…..I’d like to try make one of yours!

  • Many years ago I made a porfolio case using a bargello pattern. Really got a lot of wonderful comments when i took it to meetings. I have a set of hand dyed gradation fabrics to make another, but can never decide just which design to use.

    I love all these examples you’ve shown.

    —Sue Lerch on July 25, 2013
  • I have never heard of Bargello quilting until today. I hope to try it soon!

    —Stannerswife on July 25, 2013
  • The curves in Bargello quilts fascinate me. They create movement. I have never made a Bargello quilt but would like to try one someday.

    —Nancy Bennett on July 25, 2013
  • This is diffenitly on my list of "to do". The Tonga Treats colors are very pretty and wouls go with what I have in mind

    —Kay Statom on July 25, 2013
  • Like many of the people who commented, I have never made a Bargello quilt. I have loved looking at them, but thought them to be difficult. I enjoyed looking at the examples given and am thinking perhaps I could manage this technique after reading more about it and perhaps watching a video or class. I am more inclined to try one now. I have to say the lovely fabrics would certainly be an inspiration.

    —Pamela Zajicek on July 25, 2013
  • "Island Sunrise" would be my choice to try. Never made a bargello quilt but I did make a bargello needlepoint pillow cover.

    —Diane L. on July 25, 2013
  • I did a bargello (or Navajo we sometimes see!) for my shop in the 90’s, I used it in curtains and a large dividing screen. I still have it, to be used hopefully as part of another project, it is green pink and blue, so perhaps a baby quilt! I see the same techniques now in the strip pieced Trip Around the World quilts, same principles, but bargello requires more planning, love the effects Eileen gets with good planning and great color choices! Thanks so much

    —Sharon on July 25, 2013
  • I’ve been quilting for 40 years, but about 6 years ago, my sister said she wanted me to come to Kentucky and teach her how to quilt. I racked my brain to think of a good first quilt and ended up teaching her Bargello. She picked beautiful batiks that matched her bedroom. I made one at the same time so that I could make the mistakes first and tell her, "Don’t do what I just did!" lol! They both turned out gorgeous and I learned something new right along with her!

    —Bonnie Booy on July 25, 2013
  • I have made a Bargello quilt and it looks harder then it is. It is a blast and turns out beautiful. However, mine didn’t turn out looking anything like Eileen Wright. She is amazing. I would love her book.

    —Deborah Richardson on July 25, 2013
  • I’ve made several Bargello quilts. The most recent one was the Aurora Borealis quilt from the book. I made it a little bigger and used different colors to make it for my personal taste. It was so strange to make rows of the quilt and not to do blocks, when the rows are done the only thing left is a border. What a fun quilt it was to make. I used aqua blues and went to a sandy pink color, very different from the colors I would normally use. I would like to make more of these quilts, they are so striking.

    —Linda on July 25, 2013
  • I have yet to make a bargello quilt, but I have a pattern, purchased several years ago, that’s on my to-do list. This book looks amazing, and the Tonga Treats would be a huge help in making my first bargello quilt. I might even have to put aside the pattern I have, if I manage to win the book & fabric…some of those quilts look really nice!! Thanks for the opportunity!!

    —Vivian Oaks on July 25, 2013
  • Have never tried one but these are lovely patterns and fabrics, could be tempted!

    —Sydnie on July 25, 2013
  • Making a bargello quilt has been on my list since I took my very first quilting class in the early 1990s. Someday, just as soon as I have a design wall!

    Nita on July 25, 2013
  • I would like to use bargello in a art quilt — the idea is still evolving. And the fabric is fabulous—great idea to have 6″ strips!

    —Marlene on July 25, 2013
  • I love the look of these quilts but have always been afraid to try one. Some of the examples are beautiful.

    —Kitty on July 25, 2013
  • I have never made a bargell quilt but would love to try one. They look like a fun pattern to make!

    —Holly on July 25, 2013
  • I have not made a Bargello quilt but I’ve always wanted to. I think it would be fun!

    —Debbie Fowler on July 25, 2013
  • I have long been fascinated by bargello quilts, but have not attempted one. I have done lots of bargello needlepoint and have been a fan forever. Would love to win the fabric or the book – lovely!

    —Elizabeth Bolton on July 25, 2013
  • Love the look and would love to try. I see several in the future and would love to do one in Tonga Treats.

    —Rose Landon on July 25, 2013
  • I have her first book and have a WISP of a bargello. I like it but it takes a lot of concentration, and I usually am sewing late in the evening where I don’t have the focus for it.

    Regina on July 25, 2013
  • Bargellos look so very intriguing! No I have not yet made one, but it is on my Bucket List! I tend to run a little colorful and fear that reigning in those colors could be a problem for me here! I would love to have the book as my guiding shoulder!

    —Jan on July 25, 2013
  • I LOVE Bargello quilts but have been afraid to attempt one. I would be thrilled to win this giveaway and make my first attempt!!!

    Thank you for the opportunity!

    —Karen Pollard on July 25, 2013
  • Would love to get into Bargello. The technique makes such a beautiful presentation. I have never made one but with the right directions and guidelines would give it a try. The Sea Glass prints are very cool and would make a very attractive bargello quilt.

    Phyllis Murzyn on July 25, 2013
  • I always wanted to try bargello and Timeless Treasures fabric is my favorite.

    —Jeanette on July 25, 2013
  • I have made one bargello quilt and have had another on the bucket list for a long time. Of all the contests I have wanted to win, this book is number 1.

    —Cynthia Wood on July 25, 2013
  • I’ve not done much quilting yet. I’m practicing on "scraps" (too small to make clothing) my Grandmother left to me. They are okay, but nothing fancy. I’d like to learn how to make something really beautiful! Thanks for this offer — even if I don’t win!

    —Valerie V on July 25, 2013
  • No, I’ve never made one of these quilts, but they are absolutely beautiful!

    Deb on July 25, 2013
  • I’ve made quite a few bargello quilts, which I then add applique,photos or other embellishments to. My favorite is all greens, and I added photos of the hibiscus from my backyard. I call it’My Hibiscus Hedge’ and have it hanging in my bedroom,ready to greet m at the start of the day.

    Dee Conlon on July 25, 2013
  • I would love to make a Bargello quit. It is on my to do list.

    —Lynn Hofelich on July 25, 2013
  • I have always been intriqued by the bargello patterns. Just have never been brave enough to try one. This book looks like it will make the process easier.

    —Sandy Boyette on July 25, 2013
  • A bargello is on My "To Do" List. Have always wanted to try one. It kinda intimidates me though, because I’m afraid that I won’t get my pieces in the right order and it will not turn out right…LOL Winning the fabric would be an awesome motivator though. Thanks for the giveaway 🙂

    —Amy Caldwell on July 25, 2013
  • I’ve started a bargello quilt after taking a class from my local quilt shop, but I have yet to finish it. This book and that fabric will inspire me for sure!

    —Carol on July 25, 2013
  • I made a bargello quilt for one of my sisters. It was easy and turned out great. My other sister saw it and of course wanted one too. So I happily gave her my book and said "pick out the one you want." It was the most complex pattern in the book, and unfortunately it is not done yet. However, looking at the photos supplied in the email, I’ll have to take it out again and move it up on the quilt to do list.

    —Cheryl Zehms on July 25, 2013
  • I took a class at the Quilt University site and it truly wet my whistle regarding Bargello quilts. I would LOVE to learn more about making different patterns utilizing the ones in the new book. The sea grass fabric are right up my alley!

    —Rita Goff on July 25, 2013
  • I love the look of bargello quilts. I have wanted to make one for a couple years now but they look so complicated. I want to make one for my bed. I still have a couple of quilts that have to be finished first though. The Tonga Sea Glass batiks look wonderful, and thank you very much for a wonderful giveaway.

    Laurie P on July 25, 2013
  • I have never made a bargello quilt because I thought I couldn’t. However, I have fallen in love with the awesome green fabric and would love to make one of them. Thanks for sharing and the opportunity to win.

    —Eva on July 25, 2013
  • I have never made a bargello quilt. I would like to make one someday. I love the ‘Love Song’ done in the black and whites.

    —Vicki H on July 25, 2013
  • I have never seen this type of quilt….Bargello
    it is the most beautiful quilt that I have seen
    I love the color pink and to see the different hues that this makes is so awesome…..would love to learn more….

    denna on July 25, 2013
  • I have not made a Bargello quilt. I always liked cleaning one lady’s house since she had a very beautiful Bargello she had made. It would be interesting one day to make one.

    —Laura on July 25, 2013
  • I love the bargello patterns! Some day soon I will have to attempt to make one. The Tonga Sea Glass batiks line is BEAUTIFUL! Thank you

    —Maxine Euto on July 25, 2013
  • A Bargello quilt is still on my "I Want to Make" list.

    —Gayle Grier on July 25, 2013
  • I’m a retired senior citizen and took up quilting less than three years ago. My wife and I made quilts for our grandchildren (12) our first year. I’ve taken a liking to quilts with small pieces. Our sewing group says I am crazy each time I come with a different design that they wouldn’t tackle. I’ve wanted to try a Bargello design, but as of yet haven’t found the courage. Maybe this book and the materials will send me over the edge again. Thanks!

    —Ron Lower on July 25, 2013
  • I love the beauty of Bargello quilt but have been so busy with other projects for my clients that i have not had time to try this quilt. Have all the material to make one in shades of blue.

    Maxine on July 25, 2013
  • I have had this quilt on my list forever! They are so beautiful. However, I am so intimidated by it that I haven’t had the nerve to start one. Seeing the instruction on this page, makes me think that I could do this. They are so beautiful. The Tonga fabrics look like they would make a very serene quilt. Something that I could gaze at and make me forget all my woes for the day. Thanks for the opportunity.

    —Sheila on July 25, 2013
  • Very nice and a bargello quilt is on my to do list along with a few other things.

    —Judy on July 25, 2013
  • I have done a lot of quilts but the bargello quilt is one that has always been one that I have been afraid to tackle. Not sure if I have the colors right and always second guessing myself. I am taking care of my 91 year old mother and don’t get out to do much shopping for fabric too find all the colors I need. I would love too win this so I could make a bargello quilt and cross it of my bucket list.

    —Lauren Mattison on July 25, 2013
  • I love bargello quilts but as yet its still just on the "to be do" list.

    —Marilyn in Alberta on July 25, 2013
  • I adore bargello quilts. I have always been fascinated with them and never knew how they were made until recently looking at Eileen’s first book. What a neat technique! Thanks for offering everyone a chance to enjoy her new book and gorgeous fabric to boot!

    —Sharon on July 25, 2013
  • I love the look of Bargello quilts the way the colour runs together and the way it looks like it has movement I’m new to the quilting world put I have bought a pattern for a heart shaped Bargello know I just have to get better at quilting before I can try to make it. But would love to get a book that could explain to me how to make one!

    —Debbie on July 25, 2013
  • I have always thought Bargello quilts were beautiful, but I have been intimidated by how how difficult they look. After ready the review on this new book, I think I could actually make one since it’s just like strip piecing! I’m really exciting and looking forward to getting the book.

    —Joan on July 25, 2013
  • Would love to make a bargello quilt from these fabrics! thanks for the giveaway

    —Katherine on July 25, 2013
  • I have made one bargello wallhanging. It was much easier than it looked. I get compliments on it all the time. Would like to do another one someday-the book and fabrics would be a great quick start! Thanks for the chance to win!

    —Pam on July 25, 2013
  • I just love the looks of a bargello quilt they are so stunning and bright but I would love to make one for my son and his wife with whom I live with now that I am alone. This has bee on my wish list for many years but just seems to be out of my reach. I would love nothing better than to win your giveaway and then I would be forced to set my mind on doing this quilt for Christmas for them as a way to thank them for helping me. All quilts I have made so far I have given away as baby,birthday etc. so only have a couple to finish now for more gifts. I also have an early 1900’s quilt top but am afraid to try and put together incase I ruin some of the pieces as they are all hand pieced. Thankyou for letting me enter your give away.

    —Norma Gorrill on July 25, 2013
  • I’ve seen and admired many Bargello quilts. I have always planned on making one ‘one of these days’, and now I am glad I have waited! These bargellos are incredible and have just a little play in them that makes them more fascinating than any I have seen before! I’m ready to delve into making one now.

    —Annie C. on July 25, 2013
  • Yes, I actually have made a bargello quilt. We started spending a couple of months each winter in Arizona and I needed a quilt for the queen-sized bed in our trailer, so I made a bargello quilt using Southwestern fabrics. I really like the black and white one shown in Eileen’s book, but need it to be much bigger!

    —Ginny on July 25, 2013
  • I have never made a bargello quilt but this would be a great way to give it a try. love all the shades.

    —Connie on July 25, 2013
  • I’ve been quilting since 1974 and have made traditional quilts, art quilts, and now modern quilts. I love the challenge of trying anything new and something that truly excites me. I’ve seen Bargello quilts and am inspired by their beauty. I love the way they explore color, gradation, shading, and beautiful contrast. I’m certain this book would surely enlighten even the most timid of quilters to try something new and exciting. Even an older quilter, such as myself, would be excited to explore this technique.

    —Jan on July 25, 2013
  • I love the flow of bargello and while doing simple small(-ish) quilts, these are the ideas I turn to and dream of doing.

    —Cathy on July 25, 2013
  • would love to win this collection to try a bargello. Love the pattern play and the wonderful colors

    —LINDA on July 25, 2013
  • I have made a small bargello years ago. My sewing friend and I made an American Flag. It turned out really cute! I have been admiring some larger patterns for years and would love to tackle a larger project. They always look so complicated, but with this technique, sooo easy. The Tonga Treats fabric line would be wonderful! I just love these colors!

    —Theresa on July 25, 2013
  • I have made several bargellos, only one that twists and turns. I love it the most! THis looks like a great book.

    jean on July 25, 2013
  • I have never made a bargello quilt, but would love to try one. And I love the batiks.

    —Rosemary on July 25, 2013
  • I like all the possibilities that bargello design offers. I have plans to do one in the future as a friend did one last year and I admire hers. I really like the new sea glass colors as they go with the colors in my dining room as well as my sea shore decor of my home in Florida! I have used other tonga treats and like their choices in color.

    —Brenda Whiteley on July 25, 2013
  • I can remember doing bargello needlepoint…would love to to a great bargello quilt!!!

    —ro on July 25, 2013
  • I love bargellos! I’ve done one fairly simple one! I would love to try one of the more involved ones!!!

    —Stephanie Pasch on July 25, 2013
  • TT is my favorite fabric company. I can walk into a shop, browse through fabric, but the ones I seem to like and gravitate towards are frequently TT. I love their novelty fabrics, and had not considered that that made batiks which I am also very fond of. I have made a bargello, but it was a sweatshirt front and it was several years ago. In retrospect it wasn’t that difficult. I would love, love, love to win some TT batiks.

    —Rosemary on July 25, 2013
  • Oh goodness, how I would love to be able to make a Bargello quilt. Next on my list is your book. Thank you for a chance to win these gorgeous fabrics.

    Carolyn on July 25, 2013
  • Have never tried a bargello quilt but would love to.

    —Marti M on July 25, 2013
  • Love the More Twist and Turn Bargello quilts and am a HUGE fan of Timeless Treasures batiks!!!!! The combination of both might just be what I need to add a bargello quilt to my collection of quilts made in this lifetime!
    Thanks for the opportunity with this great give away!

    —Christine Frost on July 25, 2013
  • My sister-in-law picked out a Bargello pattern that she liked and I plan on making it for her. I’m still in the collecting fabric stage but hope to start on it soon. I love the movement that Bargello creates!

    —Susan C on July 25, 2013
  • A Bargello quilt has been on my wanna-make-one list for about 25 years! I just love the look of the style and the colour gradationsof the fabrics. Maybe this post will encourage me to finally start sewing.

    —lindawwww on July 25, 2013
  • Since Today!!! I had never heard of a Bargello Quilt until today. Now I would like to try. I’m a little scared, but sure the directions will help me do it! That’s what I love about getting your emails – I’m exposed to different quilt styles and colors I might not of thought of doing before!

    —Chloe Lewis on July 25, 2013
  • I taught bargello classes waaaaaay back in the late 80s/early 90s! So nice to see a resurgence in the style.

    Terri on July 25, 2013
  • I have always admired bargello quilts; but I have not attempted to make one yet. It looks a little intimidating. Maybe one day I will make one. Thank you for the chance to win. I love Tonga batiks. I have a few of them in my stash already.

    —Josefina on July 25, 2013
  • I made a bargello quilt for my youngest son. I was very ill for over a year and could only sew about five minutes at a time. My health slowly improved, my sewing sessions lengthened and the quilt was completed. I felt this quilting process was very therapeutic. The quilt was awarded a red ribbon at the state fair….my first entry in the fair. I would love to make another variation in the Sea Glass batiks to enter in the next state fair!

    —Lisa on July 25, 2013
  • I love Bargello. I have designed one on my own and it is beside me as I type. I love the fabric selection most of all. I also have a king size twisted Bargello quilt ready to "sandwich" and quilt. My husband and I selected the fabrics together. It is the winter quilt for our room. I haven’t done a Bargello quilt in the batiks yet. Sounds super. I want to try more Bargello as I love doing them and quilting is easy. I have given most of my quilts away, the last one to people in New Jersey after Hurricane Irene. I even shared my millennium quilt that had over 2000 pieces. Remember?

    —Diana Johnston on July 25, 2013
  • I have made a couple small bargello Christmas trees. The bargello quilts are so beautiful! Love the Tonga Treats fabric. Right now working on a batik quilt, but it’s not a bargello pattern!

    —Christy on July 25, 2013
  • Never made a bargello quilt, but love how they look.Seems difficult to do, very intricate.I like the baby bargello quilts.

    —Vonda B. on July 25, 2013
  • those are my colors! I really need them!

    —Rita Batman on July 25, 2013
  • Bargello quilts are so fascinating! One has definitely been on my list to do for a long time. I started one at the last retreat I went to, but haven’t been able to pick it up again.

    —Janie Benfield on July 25, 2013
  • I have not made a bargello quilt, but have dabbled in smaller bargello projects. I will be retiring in a few months and, as bargello is one of my favorite types of patterns, a bargello quilt is high on my to-do list after retirement. I am so looking forward to being able to do the things I love after I retire.

    —Linda Green on July 25, 2013
  • I have made a Bargello, and it was soooo much fun. I really want to make another. I have been looking and looking for this book. Like my Mom says "They are sooo easy, and make you look sooo Smart and Talented."

    Katherine Krejcir on July 25, 2013
  • I Love Love Love bargellos! I have only made one though. My girlfriend and I made one but we were afraid it would end up as a UFO so we decided to turn it into a ‘quilt as you go’ bargello! So glad we did! They are just large wallhangings but they took us 3 days at a quilt retreat to get them done! Would love to win the book and the fabric! Thanks for the chance!

    —Nancy Hearon on July 25, 2013
  • I have not attempted a Bargello quilt, but these beautiful fabrics and neat book are encouraging me to step out of my comfort zone and see what I can accomplish!

    —Pat on July 25, 2013
  • i have wanted to make a bargello quilt for almost 20 years, but have never gotten up the gumption to do it. this book and fabric would be just the kick in the pants i need to go for it! thanks so much for the chance to win!

    —chrissie w on July 25, 2013
  • I made a Bargello quilt about 25 years ago and loved it…except the night I was sewing too late and put a 7/8″ strip upside down! I hate to leave a mistake for morning so I took it all out…and put it back in upside down! At that point, I figured I’d better start fresh! That one hangs at my mom’s house and I’d love to try those batiks for a new one.

    Beth Strand on July 25, 2013
  • I have always wanted to make a bargello quilt. They tell a story with fabric. I would love to win so my dream of making a bargello quilt will come true.

    —Terri Tresise on July 25, 2013
  • Many years, and a few passions, ago I learned needlepoint and bargello was an included pattern. How interesting to see it in fabric!

    —Patricia Hersl on July 25, 2013
  • I have never made a bargello quilt but with the new precuts available, I’m all for giving it a try!! The Sea Glass line is absolutely gorgeous!

    —Julie Allen on July 25, 2013
  • Like many other quilters,I thought making a Bargello quilt would be too difficult, so I took a class. I fell in love and made four Bargello quilts in a row. I find the process changeling, but if you follow step by step, the quilt takes shape on the design board and becomes exciting to see finished.

    —Lee Beckman on July 25, 2013
  • I fell in love with a Bargello quilt picture in one of the Bargello books in 2009. The one I wanted to make, a pattern was not included. So, I created and drew my own cartoon that was to be three dimensional. This particular Bargello quilt was made for my University’s 100th centennial birthday and incorporated pictures from the life of the University. The quilt was on display for a year and now will be shadowboxed and hung permanently at the University main office.
    I created another Bargello quilt in 2012, which now hangs in my office at work, which is continually commented on.
    I love the mathematics and colors behind designing and making Bargello Quilts!

    —Tami Bechtle on July 25, 2013
  • I have made only completed one Bargello and would love to do more! Eileen’s book looks like a must have!

    —Carolyn Helmick on July 25, 2013
  • I have bought the pattern, I have bought the fabric and I want to make a bargello quilt for my son when he gets married. He’s been engaged for seven plus years now and I am still waiting for the announcement so I can start making the quilt!

    —Joyce O. on July 25, 2013
  • My aunt and I went to a quilt show last weekend and saw a beautiful Bargello quilt AND table runner! I showed the quilt to my husband and he fell in love with it and wants me to make one. I have been dying to make one. I think it would be an awesome challenge for me since I am a beginner quilter. I LOVE batik fabrics. My girlfriend and I are constantly searching for nedw batiks to add to our stash. One day, I will have enough batiks to make a bargello quilt.

    —Cynthia on July 25, 2013
  • Me make a bargello quilt? It looks so complicated! I love looking at them and have dreamed of being able to make one. I am self taught and am trying to venture out into different ways to make quilts. Love the color of the batiks shown. My "craft room" is done in those colors.
    Peaceful and calming. Haven’t heard of the Tonga Strips. Beautiful.
    Just absolutely beautiful. Hope I have the confidence to learn the bargello style. Thanks for sharing with us.

    —Linda Wooley on July 25, 2013
  • I’ve never made any bargello quilts and have found it intimidating just looking at them! But sometimes it is good to push yourself to try new things. These fabrics sure make you want to give it a go!

    —Mary Anne on July 25, 2013
  • I have already made a Bargello quilts in FALL colors & came out beautiful. It is a lot of time but the end results are well worth it. THANK YOU so much for this give a way.

  • Me make a bargello quilt? It looks so complicated! I love looking at them and have dreamed of being able to make one. I am self taught and am trying to venture out into different ways to make quilts. Love the color of the batiks shown. My "craft room" is done in those colors.
    Peaceful and calming. Haven’t heard of the Tonga Strips. Beautiful.
    Just absolutely beautiful. Hope I have the confidence to learn the bargello style. Thanks for sharing with us.

    —Linda Wooley on July 25, 2013
  • Love the fabric!I would sew love to have it! 😉

    —patricia arnold on July 25, 2013
  • I did make a bargello color wheel on a course in January 2013
    I think it is a fun and inspiering technic – And I would love to learn more about bargello quilting because when you learn it is very easy to handle the technic
    I have never won a fabric price and would love to win this Line here from Tonga Batiks – I love the size of the fabric pieces

    Lone Jakobsen on July 25, 2013
  • Bargello with a Twist is on my bucket list to do soon. I totally love the movement with that pattern. One of my all time favorites!
    The Sea Glass batiks are gorgeous!

    —Renee LaFranca on July 25, 2013
  • Several years ago I made a bargello quilt. It was a lot of fun to the designs come together. I have always wanted to make another one. Would love to do the green one shown on the front cover of ‘More Twist and Turns Bargello’ book!

    —Laura Rosenwald on July 25, 2013
  • Would love to win this pack – my best friend has been drooling over this book and LOVES batiks! What a great combo!

    —Jaimie Larson on July 25, 2013
  • I have just begun quilting; although, I learned to sew many years ago. My husband teaches art and admires the Bargello quilts; however, I always dismissed them because they looked too complex for me. I always read my Martingale emails, but when I saw Bargello quilt, I almost skipped this one–except I kept reading. You can make a Bargello with strip piecing? Maybe I can do this. I need the book and have added quilting a Bargello to my bucket list. Thanks for teaching me not to dismiss something complex-looking (and beautiful) so quickly.

    —Vinette on July 25, 2013
  • The bargello quilt with the photo is amazing! I would like the fabrics to make that one someday.

    —Cora Darrin on July 25, 2013
  • I would sew LOVE to win the book and Tonga Treats! I have always wanted to make a Bargello quilt, but have not yet! I say yet, because I know the book would give me the instruction I would need to be successful! My heart is very near and dear to Cape Cod and the Tobga Sea Glass collection would be the perfect choice for a Bargello quilt to always remind me of the Cape!!thank you for this opportunity!

    —Barb on July 25, 2013
  • I tried my hand at a lap-sized Bargello quilt, but to me it just looked more like off-set squares….sure could use a book with some great instructions!

    —Teresa on July 25, 2013
  • It’s on my "to do" list, this would make it happen sooner, have admired my instructor’s projects for many months….. beautiful fabrics and patterns….

    —Pat Kilmer on July 25, 2013
  • I have never made one but have all ways wanted to.I just love the colors of the fabric.

    —Debbie Moore on July 25, 2013
  • I love bargello, but haven’t attempted a bargello quilt yet. But that has been on my list for at least 10 years!
    I tend to stick to smaller projects, so there is a better chance that they will get completed!

    —Joanne Schultz on July 25, 2013
  • I would love to try bargello and am amazed at the color ranges the designer came up with. Lovely

    —Jeannie M on July 25, 2013
  • I have never made a bargello quilt, but I am collecting pinks for a bargello heart, which is on my short list. I now need to make Glacier Bay that is is seen above since I also just returned from a cruise to Alaska and fell in love with the colors in the glaciers in the Tracy Arms Fiord. This book looks amazing, I would love to win it along with the fabric.

    —Carolyn Howland on July 25, 2013

    —KrisNew on July 25, 2013
  • I am a wanna-be Bargello quilt maker! Like someone above said, picking out all the fabrics and colors scare me to death. I am a sewer, not necessarily a quilter. I would love to have these fabrics to begin this art…..

    —RuthWW on July 25, 2013
  • I have made a bargello quilt – actually I have made 3- one called the Long and Winding road (twice) and the other a pattern called Melinda’s Heart. They turned out beautifully and I am thinking of making another for a wedding gift for a nephew and his wife to be. I love them and would love to win your new book. I have your first one. Thanks for the chance from a fan from Alberta Canada,

    quiltmom anna on July 25, 2013
  • I made a bargello several years ago. I was so sure it was going to be hard that I picked out some fugly fabrics that I could ‘waste’ in case I screwed it up royally. It was actually easier to do that I thought and I LOVE the quilt.. and those not so pretty fabrics worked in this pattern. A more complex bargello like these has been on my bucket list since, just haven’t had the guts to tackle it yet.

    —Laura on July 25, 2013
  • I made a table runner and had great difficulty with it, you know the one with the trees or ornaments? I was difficult and sometimes uneven, the contrast wasn’t right or too bright, it just needed more expertise or I didn’t do it right so I gave it away to a neighbor and they were thrilled so it got a good home instead my what not pile…

    —diane on July 25, 2013
  • have never attempted on because they seem so complicated…maybe if I win the fabric I can try one…

    —lawana whaley on July 25, 2013

    —Julie in Tucson, Arizona on July 25, 2013
  • I have never made a bargello quilt but would like to try. I think all of the examples are really pretty. Looks like a fun quilt to make.

    Brenda on July 25, 2013
  • I’ve cut one bargello pattern and kitted it up to put it together later … it’s now waiting for me to get my new craft room in working order! love the idea of the bargellos patterns; they are easy, and have such fascinating designs.

    ritainalaska on July 25, 2013

    —LeAnne L on July 25, 2013

    —Heidi on July 25, 2013
  • The movement in the bargello quilts has always amazed me and I am sad to say I have never made a bargello yet. I have the material and pattern but other things seem to get in the way when I want to spend my time quilting. I love batiks no matter what color or design, but this Tonga line has made my heart flutter. Thank you for the chance to win this beautiful collection.

    —Linda Kountz on July 25, 2013

    Margaret griffiths on July 25, 2013
  • I have wanted a bargello for years, and have attempted to pull the colors together a few times, but have not had the confidence to pull the trigger. This would certainy send me on my way!

    —Michele Hayden on July 25, 2013
  • The "Island Sunrise" bargello sample is just beautiful and I think it would be beautiful made in the Timeless Treasures Tonga Sea Glass batiks collection. I have wanted to make one of these quilts ever since I’m been quilting but have never had the nerve to do so. I will be ordering the "More Twist-and-Turn Bargello Quilts" now that I know there are instructions on how to do this. Thanks so much for offering these beautiful quilts to us…and the chance to win this beautiful batik material.

    —Lynda Nunez on July 25, 2013

    —Pam Williams on July 25, 2013

    —Tesuque on July 25, 2013
  • I’ve been planning on starting a bed runner as soon as I finish up the baby quilt that I’m making. I think a Bargello design would look wonderful and those Tonga Sea Glass batiks would blend into my color scheme perfectly!

  • I’ve never done an entire quilt in bargello, but I did make a bargello block in a quilting class before. It went quite well. 🙂 I can’t imaging how to do the intricate patterns pictured here..they are breathtaking! Would love that sea glass bundle. My sewing room is done in those pretty colors…love it!

    —Karen on July 25, 2013
  • I have never made a bargello quilt, though I have always admired them. If I were to do one, these Sea Glass fabrics would be the best because my most favorite place to be is at the ocean. I have a collection of very small pieces of sea glass I have found over the years and some lovely sand dollars that are fun to get when the tide is moving and turning them up.
    Thanks for the giveaway!

    —Nancy D. on July 25, 2013
  • A very long time ago I made a black/white quilt with musical fabric for my son. It was a king size so it took a while but I would love to make another one from one of the designs in the book. Thank you for your generosity.

    —V Abney on July 25, 2013
  • I am brand new to quilting – well, almost new. I took a class several months ago and am totally in love with it! The creativeness, the process, the time thinking about quilts, the feeling of working & touching the fabric, in other words everthing! I’m just finishing up a lap quilt as my 1st project and will attempt a bargello pattern next! I’m so excited cause I know I can do it. Difficult or not – I Can Do It! Thanks for the idea!

    —Terri Long on July 25, 2013
  • A bargello quilt has been on my "to do" list for quite some time. It is out of my comfort zone, but I need to take the plunge! Winning the lovely fabric would go a long way toward starting a bargello quilt. Thank you for the chance to win.

    Kathleen Barrett on July 25, 2013

    It will be fun to try new patterns .

    —Linda Burch on July 25, 2013
  • I’ve never made a bargello. I’ve wanted to, but have always been afraid to try. Such beautiful quilts have to be hard to make…right? The Tonga fabric looks like it would make a beautiful bargello!

    —Debbie on July 25, 2013
  • I enjoy looking at these lovely quilts, but I have never made one. I think I tried the technique in a pillow that I gave away years ago.

    —Karen A on July 25, 2013
  • I have always been fascinated with the bargello quilt and have it on my to-do list. I like the look of the applique on top of the bargello.

    paula.thequilter on July 25, 2013
  • A bargello quilt has never been high on my list, but seeing these – WOW! Wonderful colors and movement. Using batiks makes a world of difference.

    —Mona on July 25, 2013
  • I made a queen size Bargello that is absolute beautiful. I attempted this after I did an instant Bargello quilt that I also love. I love the look of the Bargello.

    —Tiana Duart on July 25, 2013
  • Bargello has been on my bucket list for a long time and I still have not gotten up enough nerve to try it. Sounds like I need this book to get me going. Though to be honest I’m not sure which one would be my first attempt, they are all so beautiful.

    —Susan Clark on July 25, 2013
  • Have never made a bargello quilt – but would love to. Kross my fingers for this 🙂
    Have you any book to recomend who is about bargello – have seen so many great quilts with bargello and want to try out one little adwansed I think……
    Have a great summer.

    —Sue Anderson on July 25, 2013
  • Love bargello quilts. Maybe the next one I make will be for myself instead of a gift. Have 3 color splash bundles just waiting for the next creation. Soon I hope.

    —Jeannette Cyr on July 25, 2013
  • Borgello quilts are on my to-do list but I have always been a bit leery of cutting the smaller pieces….I won’t let that stop me though!

    —Terry on July 25, 2013
  • I have been piecing quilt tops for about 4 years and finally began my Bargello project three months ago. The process itself is direct and seams match up when I sew the slices together, but, it takes so much time to sew the slices together for this project which consists of 36 slices! My Bargello top is only half sewn together since it will be a queen size quilt. I would welcome the opportunity to make smaller projects as listed in this book by Ms. Wright.

    —Elizabeth on July 25, 2013
  • Hi!
    I have made a bargello quilt…well, a few actually! I made my first about 8 years ago, swore I wouldn’t make another, yet I have!!! I have found bargello quilts to be one that is not just feminine or just masculine. It is so perfect to make as a quilt for a wedding gift!! And the flexibility one has to incorporate colors–amazing!! Easily appeals to everyone who sees them. I would love to see how the author has the Argyle quilt done…and would love to make it–or three!! Ms. Eileen has done an astounding job!!!

    —Cheryl R on July 25, 2013
  • I have made one bargello quilt, from the 1st Twist & Turn Bargello book, & it hangs on my living room wall. I would love to make more!!

    —Jeannine on July 25, 2013
  • I made a bargello quilt several years ago in one of our Jamboree classes and had a great time with it. I used Asian fabric with a red, black, and white influence. I came out great. Would love to try another.

    —Lynn Zacharias on July 25, 2013
  • Bought all the fabrics to create a bargello quilt and cut the strips and now it sits in my sewing to do pile. Time just never seems to get around to completing the bargello quilt.

    —Debbie on July 25, 2013
  • Although I have not attempted to make a gargello quilt, I have always been amazed at all the different variations this technique makes.

    Dena Martin on July 25, 2013
  • I did a quilt for a friend who signed up for a class and was not physically able to take the class. It was a fun class and I never realized how reasonably simple they were. I am another one for myself, just need to find a little time to do it.

    Vixanna Robbel on July 25, 2013
  • I’m one of the many people who haven’t made one yet but I’d love to! But it would be amazing to have such lovely fabrics to try one with. Thanks for the giveaway.

    —Amy on July 25, 2013
  • I did a Bargello workshop that produced a cushion and intended to make a quilt. Then I becacme ill and didn’t get started in the white heat of passion so lost the momentum.
    I’ve been waiting 10 years to get a new burst of enthusiam.

    —Gloria on July 25, 2013
  • My fascination with bargello began in the late 60’s when I made a number of needlepoint belts and eventually some pillows. About 10 years ago I made a bargello quilt using one of the stitch patterns from the bargello needlepoint book and some very rudimentary strip piecing techniques. I was happy with my results, but it was nothing like Eileen’s beautiful quilts. I’m ready for a new challenge! Maybe ‘Argyle’ is in my future with Timeless Treasures fabric and the new book.

    —Barbara Mercado on July 25, 2013
  • Have always wanted to make a Bargello quilt, these fabrics are so lovely, too!

    —Lavinia Sala on July 25, 2013

  • Wow! What great fabrics! It would be a treat to just hold them in my hand!

    —Lucille on July 25, 2013
  • Yes, I have dreamed of making one, but dared to take it on yet. With what you said, it now sounds easier and as soon as I finish all my projects cut for up coming babies in our family, I just might tackle one! Loved the idea for the baby quilt. It is smaller, so not as scary!! Thank you for the opportunity to win!!

    —Connie Johanson on July 25, 2013

    —Darla Zimmer on July 25, 2013
  • A Bargello is definitely on my list to make for a year now. I’, fairly new to quilting and it intimidates me a bit. They are beautiful!

    —Christine Sherman on July 25, 2013
  • I helped some high school gals with a bargello quilt project several years ago and was inspired to do one myself. Why do we put off new challenging projects – though I must say, "If those kids can do one, I’m sure I could also." This book and offer of fabric looks like it would truly inspire me. Perhaps that’s just what I need!

    —Ruth Hall on July 25, 2013

    —Peggy on July 25, 2013

    —Missy Lamb on July 25, 2013

    —Roberta on July 25, 2013
  • I keep looking at Bargello quilts but think they are too hard. I always get off 1/4 inch with sewing long strips. Then when ironed it stretches. Green is my favorite color and the fabric would inspire me to learn this technique.

    —Happy Johns on July 25, 2013
  • I have been quilting for a year now, & I want to make every quilt I’ve ever seen, impossible I know, but I can dream right, I am in the process of making my first tumbler quilt, I have made a few baby rag quilts, and soon I will be ready for a Bargello quilt, and I would love to start with this fabric, it is stunning, as are all of these quilts.

    —Melissa Odom on July 25, 2013
  • I have never made a bargello quilt but based on the ones I am seeing with this book I will be adding one to my to do list. I love the way the different shades of the fabric create the design and movement in the quilt.

    —Judy on July 25, 2013
  • I used to do a lot of bargello needlework and never dreamed that there were bargello quilts. Nice discovery! I will have to consider one of these!!!

    —Jacqueline on July 25, 2013
  • I have been wanting to make a bargello quilt since I first saw one, but they seem a bit too challenging. Maybe I’ll try one soon.

    Kat on July 25, 2013
  • I would love to make a bargello quilt with these beautiful fabrics.
    Diane – July 25, 2013

    —Diane Gilbert on July 25, 2013
  • Like many of the other posters, I was afraid of Bargello quilts. Seeing these beautiful quilts and fabrics, I’d love to try my hand at bargello. I believe with this book and the fabrica, even I can do it! I’d love to win.

    —Patricia Johnston on July 25, 2013
  • Looks like a very nice selection of batik greens. I was once told that green is the "natural" color for the North West. I use green in over 50% of my quilts and batiks are my favorite.

    Joan Calvery on July 25, 2013
  • I’ve never made one, but it’s been on my to-do list for about 10 years. LOVE the fabrics!!!

    —Wendy on July 25, 2013
  • I’ve alwaysn thought Bargello was just too hard but this book makes it look quite easy with spectacular results. I’d love to win this fabulous prize..

    —Annie Andrew on July 25, 2013
  • I have not made a bargello quilt yet but it is on my bucket list, the sea glass batik fabrics would inspire me to start one!

    —Barb S. on July 25, 2013
  • I have made one bargello quilt, but I have my eye on that jacket…would love to have a chance to make one of those, as well! Thank you for the possibility of winning those beautiful fabrics!

    Mary Brown on July 25, 2013
  • Those quilts just leave me breathless! Beautiful/Awesome/Gorgeous. I would love to try one. Thanks for a chance.

    —Beverly Atkins on July 25, 2013
  • I’ve made a trip around the world quilt which is similar, but not having enough fabrics is what holds me back now from making a Bargello. Would love to win the strips & ebook.

    —gab on July 25, 2013
  • Oh, how I yearn to make a borgello print wall hanging. I’ve been searching just the right pattern, just the right fabric, then when I think I’ve found it, there’s another! They are so beautiful, and I know one of them will look stunning on my living room wall, in a place of honor behind the sofa. I’m beginning to think one just will not be enough. And the colors…yum! Oh, how many ways to play with these wonderful fabrics. To hold, to smell, to combine!

    —Glenna Pocock on July 25, 2013
  • Yes – I have made bargello quilts in the past, been a very long time ago though, about 20 yrs! I made mini bargellos which I sold at craft fairs. Also made the minis into the sides of small tote bags and even made a few bargello vests back in the day. I would love to win the book and/or fabric, who knows, I may have another bargello quilt to make! Thanks for the opportunity! Ani in NC

    —Ani Hudson on July 25, 2013
  • I would like to make one of these one day

    —Lisa on July 25, 2013
  • I have always loved the movement and colors in the Bargello quilts. I would love to make one and plan on getting this book to help me. Would love to win the book or the material to get me on my way. Thanks for the chance.

    —Mary Meche on July 25, 2013
  • I made a bargello wallhanging years ago and loved. It was a lot of fun making. I’d love to make a full size quilt.

    —Judy on July 25, 2013
  • I HAVE ADMIRED AND ALWAYS WANTED TO DO A BARGELLO QUILT:). I WOULD LOVE THE OPPORTUNITY TRY IT USING THIS BOOK AND FABRICS. THANK YOU FOR THE OPPORTUNITY.

    —DEE on July 25, 2013
  • Argyle is stunning. The colors just set the design perfectly. It would be a treat for me to be able to make that quilt. I know just where it would go.

    —Marilyn Koestler on July 25, 2013
  • The quilt in Eileen’s book are beautiful. I’ve thought about making a bargello quilt but the decisions regarding color and fabric overwhelm me. I would love to win the book and fabric to relieve the stress and have fun.

    —Suzette Maier on July 25, 2013
  • It must be ESP! We were just at Martingale’s tour on July 22nd and mentioned a desire to make a bargello quilt… and look what you posted! Meant to be!

    —Gina M. on July 25, 2013
  • I have had a bargello tablerunner pattern for two Christmases now — it’s a holiday pattern with ornaments hanging from the curves. Maybe this year…………..

    —Carol Vickers on July 25, 2013
  • I have had pattern and fabric for a year. Something else always slips ahead of it.Soon I hope.

    —Barbara Quincey on July 25, 2013
  • I’ve not done a quilted bargello piece but I did make several needlepoint items in that design. I love the look and maybe, one day … The batiks are gorgeous and certainly will make a beautiful whatever-the-winner-wants. Thank you Timeless Treasures!

    —Lynn W. on July 25, 2013
  • Oh my goodness, I just ordered that book. Can’t wait for it to get here. I love Bargello quilts and the fabric bundle is wonderful. I would love to win the fabric and get started on the Arygle or the Island Sunrise, they are gorgeous.

    —connie on July 25, 2013
  • Oh yes ,a bargello is on my really want to do list and I think that the batiks would be just purrfect for it! When I first made a bed runner, my darling grandkids called it a "cat napper" because it was just right to keep the toes warm while reading (grins). Thanks for the chance to win!

    —carol on July 25, 2013
  • Have not made a bargello quilt. This just might push me over the edge and make me do it.

    —Mary on July 25, 2013
  • My first (and only) bargello was at the first quilt camp my sister and I went to several years ago. We made fractured bargello jackets with a sweatshirt. It took me several attempts to get mine to fit. My sister just entered hers at a quilt show yesterday along with a matching purse. I would definitely like to make a bargello quilt. They turn out beautiful.

    —Diane M on July 25, 2013
  • Have made a very basic bargello many years ago. Would like to make another, maybe more intricate one this time. The batiks would be pretty. Thanks for the opportunity to enter your give away.

    —Robert on July 25, 2013
  • I made a bargello quilt for my oldest daughter about 15 years ago.I made my own pattern using info from a book called "A New Slant on Bargello Quilts".It was fun making the small paper mockups. It was challenging though to find over 20 shades of purple, my daughters favorite color. I have actually bought another pattern recently and plan to do another. The modern patterns are just gorgeous

    —Sharon Grulkowski on July 25, 2013
  • I made a bargello for a gift about 4 years ago and have been wanting to make another. When I finished the quilt I said I was NEVER going to make another as it was not easy but it turned out very beautiful. It was done in reds, blacks, whites and border was nurse fabric and I gave it to my niece on her 35th birthday and she was a nurse.

    Cindy Garaas on July 25, 2013
  • I haven’t made a bargello quilt either, and looks like fun to try. I am amazed at the different combinations you can create. I may have to buy the book. It is always fun to win something. 🙂

    —Kathy Aldrich on July 25, 2013
  • Love the Bargello system for quilts ,made a few in my time !!!Always looking for new ideas….love to win !!! I will buy the book anyway ,,,,,

    —Anna van Meeteren on July 25, 2013
  • The top half of the cover quilt looks to me like the aurora borealis over Moscow’s onion domes. I’d love to make that. I’d call it "A winter’s Night at St. Basil’s Cathedral".

    —Edie on July 25, 2013
  • you guys just never stop with the fun previews of new books, let alone a chance to win books/ebooks and fabric. Count me in plese. I have alot of books but when I look at the binding your publishing company has the vast majority in my collection..how do you do this. :0)

    Jane Modjeski

    —MJ Modjeski on July 25, 2013
  • These quilts are beautiful (and I like the jacket the author is wearing also) – I had often thought maybe this type of quilting was beyond my expertise butI want to try and I bet I will do just fine

    —Elaine Robertson on July 25, 2013
  • I already have Eileen’s previous book, but haven’t made a quilt from it yet. I would love to win her new book and the fabrics.

    —Julie in GA on July 25, 2013
  • I made a bargello flag years and years ago. I would love to make a quilt. I think they’re absolutely stunning to see.

    —Joan on July 25, 2013
  • What a great book…that would be awesome to make a bargello larger than a placemat….that was my first bargello….just a 12 by 15 inch placemat sized block that I put into my sampler quilt….just one section of "Argyle" would be cool to try….

    —Darlene Krystal on July 25, 2013
  • Sadly, I’ve let the Bargello quilt intimidate me. A friend made a drop-dead gorgeous Bargello Christmas quilt, and I’ve yet to workup the nerve to try it myself. Maybe with those gorgeous batiks illbe able to finally make the plunge! 😉

    —Gina on July 25, 2013
  • I have done needlepoint bargello, but never done a bargello quilt. The colors of the giveaway fabric are beautiful, and I would love to use them in a bargello quilt!

    —Linda on July 25, 2013
  • I’ve never made one, but I’ve always loved them!

    —Laura F on July 25, 2013
  • Oh my, these quilts are beautiful. I have always, ever sense I can remember
    wanted to make a bargello quilt, it is defiantly on my to do list. My 2nd grand baby is do in March and I would love to make a Bargello for Baby quilt.
    Beautiful fabrics and beautiful quilts ♥

    —Norma Beckemeier on July 25, 2013
  • I have made a Bargello quilt. It was for my daughters high school graduation. The colors she chose were pink, brown and cream. It was so much fun because I loved the fabrics too. She chose the heart design and her main fabric was donuts! I used a book that I purchased used and the directions were so easy to follow. The quilt is still on my daughters bed, and she still loves it. I would encourage everyone to give it a try!

    —Lynette Root on July 25, 2013
  • I have made several, like a heart one I made years ago best. These fabrics would make a beautiful quilt.

    —Lori I on July 25, 2013
  • I have never made a Bargello quilt because they look so intimidating! I have loved every one I have ever seen and would really like to try my hand at this technique someday!

    —Robin on July 25, 2013
  • I made a bargello UFO several years ago – it was a baby gift for one of my best friends from college. I got stuck on the "hmmm, how should I quilt this" part and it continues to languish in the UFO drawer 🙁 I love bargello quilts and strip piecing – it’s time to be re-inspired!

    —Dana Cochran on July 25, 2013
  • I’ve never made a bargello quilt. They are amazing all the different looks you can get. I have it on my to do list, but it is down the line a ways. Thanks for the chance to win.

    —Jenelle Boxberger on July 25, 2013
  • I’ve made several bargello quilts and I’m always looking for a new technique or design to try with the new pre-cut fabric lines. The Sea Glass batiks would make a wonderful seasonal bargello.

    —Barbara on July 25, 2013
  • I am fairly new to quilting and have just starting stashing batiks and would love to try a bargello!

    —Patti on July 25, 2013
  • I used to make needlepoint bargello pillows way back when. The twisted bargello quilt has me really intriqued!

    —Lisa on July 25, 2013
  • I made a bargello quilt several years ago and had a lot of fun with it. Looking forward to making another in the near future. Love the Sea Glass Batiks.

    —Bonnie on July 25, 2013
  • Just learning about bargello quilting. They are beautiful and the fabric is soothing and would make a gorgeous quilt.

    —Lynn on July 25, 2013
  • I took a one day class in bargello quilting over 20 years ago in a trailer/quilt shop in Sahuarita, AZ in a cramped back room. We were to cut and sew the strips before the class and were able to finish a small quilt top during that class. I ended up making a vest from that top. Have not made anything else since but often mused about what else I could do with that style of quilting.

    Calista Schafer on July 25, 2013
  • I’ve made 7 or 8 bargellos. they are my very favorite. most of them have been done with batiks which make a striking quilt. I already have a fabric in mind for this bundle. I see an "underwater" bargello

    —mariann on July 25, 2013
  • I’ve always wanted to make a Bargello quilt, but never had the right fabric. These fabrics are gorgeous!

    Belinda on July 25, 2013
  • I have never tried a bargello quilt before, but love looking at the beautiful designs. If my list of ‘some day’ quilts gets any longer….

    —Barb Colvin on July 25, 2013
  • I’ve never made a Bargello quilt. Eileen’s quilts are lovely. I really love those baby quilts. They are so effective.

    Christine M on July 25, 2013
  • I have thought about doing this but the fabric choices have scared me off. This would be my chan ce. Thank you.

    Linda on July 25, 2013
  • I made a Bargello quilt long ago, and of course I gave it away. I would love to make another.

    —Jackie on July 25, 2013
  • Love the blend of colors.

    —Mary Richter-Zeunik on July 25, 2013
  • I’ve wanted to do one of these for sooooooo long! I’m a VERY visual learner and have yet to wrap my brain around the concept yet….thinking a class is what I’m needing. Or this wonderful book and fabric. Batiks are my favorite! Thanks for a chance to win 🙂

    —Laurie on July 25, 2013
  • I haven’t made anything with bargello technique, but was hoping to make either a vest or sweatshirt jacket. I think either would look very nice in Bargello.

    —Peggy Poole on July 25, 2013
  • I love the bargello quilts but I will be honest. I haven’t tried to make one as the thought of putting one together scares me to death but it is on my to do list and the fabrics are simply gorgeous

    —Kim Turner on July 25, 2013
  • Iam the new owner of a small quilt shop, and try to make examples of all types of quilts. Haven’t tackled a Bargello yet, looking forward to trying one. I would simply love to win and make one to hang on my wall for inspiration for my customers

    —June Taylor on July 25, 2013
  • I am fairly new to quilting and have never made a Bargello quilt. July of last year was when I started on my very first quilt! I have made Bonnie Hunter’s "Trip Around the World" which uses the same technique of sewing strips together, cutting slices and sewing them back together. I really enjoyed doing that one and once I saw the Bargello quilt, I immediately added that to my ever growing To Do List! I would love to win a copy of Eileen’s book!

    Tami Chaulk on July 25, 2013
  • These quilts are truly works of art. At my favorite quilt shop is a 90 year old lady who just the last two years began her quilt hobby that makes beautiful Bargello quilts.

    —Joan Nienke on July 25, 2013
  • Like a lot of other Quilters I have only admired the Bargello Quilt. I have been afraid to attempt making one. Maybe the bedrunner would be a great way to start. Amazing patterns you have shown us.

    —Sandy D on July 25, 2013
  • I think Bargello quilts are beautiful. I have made a small wall hanging Bargello. I haven’t attempted a larger size. I would certainly give a larger size a try if I win. Thanks for the give away.

    —Cindy B on July 25, 2013
  • I was excited to find a pattern that reminded me of the Bargello needlepoint pillows my brother used to make. I had some rainbow colored strips. It surprised me how easily my Bargello quilt went together. I would love to try it again with some more subdued colors.

    Kathy on July 25, 2013
  • Winning these fabrics to do one of the quilts In the book would be so wonderful beautiful fabrics and great quilts in the book

    —Cheryl Hank on July 25, 2013
  • i have made one WEE one from a picture in a magazine about 16 yrs ago and then 2 yrs ago our quilt club was doing one and i had this FABULOUS timeless treasure jelly roll that i had been coveting for a while :O) so i thought what the heck! well….. the quilt is affectionately known as ‘visions of he**’ it did in the end turn out lovely! although my hubby needed a new stitch ripper by the end of it ;O) it even quilted it with dazzle thread, had to couch it on! had never really machine quilted anything that size and then decided to use thread that needed couching!!! but it is gorgeous! and a lot of the patterns shown here would make me want to do one or two more :O)
    so thanx for the opportunity! maybe my lucky star is hiding under the clouds today
    blessings

    —vickster on July 25, 2013
  • I’ve made needlepoint bargello ornaments and other small items, but never a quilt. Eileen Wright’s books may provide me with the inspiration to try one, Thank you, too, for the fabric give-away.

    —Sandy on July 25, 2013
  • I fell in love with bargello long ago when I did needlepoint. And I’ve been drooling over those exact fabrics from Timeless Treasures. All I can say is, "oooooooooohhhhhhhhhhhhhh".

    —Claudia on July 25, 2013
  • Never made one, always admired them, thought it would be more than i wanted to take on. Love the thought of smaller projects, the bed runner and pillow cases are beyond beautiful.

    —Lovie Ball on July 25, 2013
  • I was a serious "wanna be" quilter growing up in Iowa. Each summer we went to the Iowa State Fair and I walked through the exhibit halls and stared in wonder at all the gorgeous quilts hung for judging and wished that someone in my family quilted. After my grandmother died we were going through her things and found several quilt tops that my great grandmother had made but never had quilted (she hand quilted everything). It was a wonderful thing to find these but I was immediately saddened that I never got to sew with her because she had passed away before I was old enough.

    In 2011 I decided I finally have time and patience to action this passion and I reached out to some local quilters near me. I live in a small town (about 880 people) in Alaska where we don’t have quilt shops or shopping centers. We DO get together and quilt though and we also get together and make the 80 mile round trip to town to shop for fabric to bring our designs to life!

    Anyway- my first quilt retreat was int eh spring of 2012 and one of the ladies spent almost a full day (you know how long a retreat day is?) cutting out a gorgeous borgello quilt in blue tones that ranged from Navy to white with fine blue toile prints in it. I was amazed at her patience and determination to get this just right. The second day she began to sew her strips and lay them out on the floor and I started to get excited about the waves of vibrant color that were coming to life! I have never seen that quilt again but I know it must be a beauty!

    Someday I hope to make one of these magical quilts…one that ripples and shimmers with color like the quilts pictures in this blog post because they are relaxing and at the same time exciting to look at. If I win this fabric bundle I will make this vision a reality in my sewing room! The joy of watching these colors melt into one another would be remarkable!

    —Joni Johnson on July 25, 2013
  • I have not made a Bargello quilt because I only started quilting a year ago. It looks a little overwhelming, but I’m ready to give it a whirl. 🙂

    —Juanita on July 25, 2013
  • Haven’t made one, but I would love to try. The fabrics…wow..! Sure would love to win them.

    —cindy white on July 25, 2013
  • While I’ve never made a bargello quilt, I did do a needlepoint bargello pillow once. A bargello quilt has been on my list for a loooong time!

    Thanks for the chance to win this book & the beautiful fabric too.

    —quiltzyx/sue on July 25, 2013
  • I made a very simplified Bargello several years ago. It was not nearly as spectacular as these. I would love to try several of these starting with the baby ones.

  • I love batiks and would love to use these fabrics in a Bargello quilt. So pretty and soothing.

    —Kathy on July 25, 2013
  • My one and only Bargello quilt was a very simple one just so I could understand the technique used. I love the newest designs now "out there"

    —val malcolm on July 25, 2013
  • I look at these amazing Bargello quilts and they both thrill and scare me with their intricacy. It’s definitely on my list of designs to try and I find the blues and greens in the Tonga Treats collection very appealing.

    Jane Cisneros on July 25, 2013
  • I would love to make a bargello quilt. I made a pillow years ago but it was woven with wool. Please choose me. Thanks.

    Peggy on July 25, 2013
  • This has been on my list for a few years. But it seems daughters boyfriend, babies being born, holiday presents, birthdays and Mother’s and Father’s Day seem to be getting in the way of quilting for myself! Winning these fabrics would be awesome! It would give me purpose to create it it for myself!

    —Carrie on July 25, 2013
  • never seen a pkg of Tonga Treats before, they sure are beautiful and would make a wonderful quilt..I love the black and white quilt most but the others are all beautiful.

    —Angela on July 25, 2013
  • I have wanted to make a bargello quilt since i first saw a picture of one. I still have not done it because I find it a bit intimidating. If I win this, I will lose my excuses and just do it!

    Gene Black on July 25, 2013
  • The closest I have come to a bargello quilt is the spicey table runner. Great fun and beautiful. A whole quilt would be fun to do.

    —Liz N on July 25, 2013
  • I’ve always been drawn to bargello quilts. I have done some bargello needlepoint but the quilts look more difficult.

    —Maureen on July 25, 2013
  • Beautiful fabric! How perfect for a bargello quilt! I’d like to give it a try!

    —Marilyn Teskey on July 25, 2013
  • The first class I took in a guild I had just joined,about 25 years ago, was the Bargello. What I remember most was the instructor insisting we stay organized and doing a lot of homework! It was an awful lot of seam pressing, but well worth it. We had our tops done in a week. It was well used and needs a few repairs. I love that quilt.

    —Rosemary Baker on July 25, 2013
  • I have made a bargello wall hanging for Christmas a few years ago. It was not nearly as difficult as it appeared. Once the strips are made, the process went quickly. I would love to make a bed-size quilt for my guest room, which would brighten it up with fabric being offered. Can never have too much fabric!

    —Florence Duheme on July 25, 2013
  • Thank you for the opportunity to win such a lovely collection
    of fabrics.

    —Dorothy Munger on July 25, 2013

  • Haven’t tried bargello – yet! Would love to get a head start with this book and those batiks!

    —Gwen W on July 25, 2013
  • I’ve always loved the Bargello quilts but thought it would be too complicated with all the little bitty squares until I saw a how-to video. Now it seems totally doable and I’d love to have a pattern and coordinated set of fabrics to start.

    —Lois on July 25, 2013
  • I have never made a bargello quilt but have that on my list of quilts to make. Winning the book and fabrics would be great!

    —Jeanne on July 25, 2013
  • A bargello has been on my wish list for a long, long time – years. I’d love to have the beautiful Tonga treats to make a bargello quilt. Maybe that’s just the nudge I need to get me started. I have been intimidated by them.

    —Susan in OK on July 25, 2013
  • I have made one bargello quilt and I loved it. It is a lot of work but it is beautiful. Would love to buy this book.

    —Pauline Gudas on July 25, 2013
  • Bargello has been on my list for a very long time. I love the look and the twisted is even more appealing. Have to get started. Winning the book would be a great motivator. 🙂 Thanks for the chance.

  • Never made a Bargello quilt. Fairly new to quilting and am addicted to all the fabrics already. Can’t wait to start a new project. 🙂

    —Penny Deans on July 25, 2013
  • I’ve never made a bargello quilt ever in 30 years of sewing. My favorite one was the black and white with music notes on it but enjoyed all the quilts. Thank you for a chance to win your book and fabric. karen608 at yahoo dot com

    —Karen on July 25, 2013
  • I made a Bargello quilt using French fabrics a few years ago, and loved the whole process. It is very straightforward, and the results always seem to look great. I definitely would love to make more!

    —Karen on July 25, 2013
  • I think Bargello quilts are lovely, but I never really considered trying one. It just looks too hard for my puny skills and feeble brain. Mabye not?

    —jane on July 25, 2013
  • I haven’t made a bargello quilt, yet. I love the colors of the Glacier Bay bargello quilt.

    —Nancy S. on July 25, 2013
  • GREEN, my favorite color! Love it

    —Rhoda on July 25, 2013
  • I have wanted to make a Bargello quilt for years, but never had the courage to try. Looking at these, I can hardly wait to start one. Thanks for a chance to win.

    —Cheryl Gunderson on July 25, 2013
  • I would love to make this bargello quilt. Never have made one. Would like this to be my first attempt at it. I like the color selection.

    —Estela Sheriff on July 25, 2013
  • I purchase a kit to make bargello quilt in the MN Shop Hop but have been scared to start but after ready this article I will have to try it this winter

    —mary ann johnson on July 25, 2013
  • My husband would like me to make him a bargello . These fabrics would please him.

    —Susan Stroh on July 25, 2013
  • One day I will be brave enough to attempt a Bargello.

    —Toni on July 25, 2013
  • I have never been attracted to Bargello quilts, ever! Until now, that is 🙂 I absolutely love the soft pastel one that looks like the ocean. OMGosh!! Please pick me!!

    —Corky on July 25, 2013
  • I made 2 Bargello quilts last year, about this time. I used the free pattern on the Hancock Fabrics site. I did one in Rainbow, and one in blue and brown’s. The LQS used the rainbow one during shop hop and I got many requests for the pattern. This bundle would make an awesome daybreak quilt !!! Thanks for the chance to win it 🙂

    —Vickie VanDyken on July 25, 2013
  • Two bargello quilts among my UFOs somewhere. I have made 3 bargello wall hangings and had fun doing them

    —Cyndy Thomas on July 25, 2013
  • I’ve always loved the Bargello pattern, just never thought I could do it. It’s one of those patterns that you want to do but not sure you have the wearwithall to do! I’m very excited about this giveaway because it will take the mystery out of the process plus give me wonderful batiks to do it with!!

    —Becca Stawecki on July 25, 2013
  • My first Bargello were 8 purple place mats. Loved it so much my next project was a table runner with Christmas trees. Loved to Bargello. The twist looks fun to do

    —Cathy on July 25, 2013
  • These are AMAZING! I love them! I haven’t made a Bargello quilt, but have made the spicy spiral table runner. I would love to make one some day. I love tackling new skills and this would become my favorite quilt!

    —Julie on July 25, 2013
  • What beautiful quilts…I’ve never made a bargello quilt but would love to give it a try…thanks for the sweet giveaway!

    —Terry on July 25, 2013
  • These quilts are amazing!! I bought a pattern over a year ago and have to admit that I’ve never even looked at the instructions because I figured it was going to be hard. After reading this article though, I think I might just have to get it out and see if it is done in strips. I’m definitely moving it up on the list to make now!

    —Lyn Zuck on July 25, 2013
  • It is on my list of things to accomplish. Just haven’t found the time to gather all the various fabrics together to do it. I love the glacier one, a bit sad that she feels our Alaskan glaciers are ugly. They are receding, and the rocks left behind are black. But still an amazing site. I would love to win this fabric and get started on a table runner!

    —Louise on July 25, 2013
  • I have made a couple of bargello quilts, one for my husband and one for my dad. When working on the one for my husband, I had a quilt shop. We taught classes and during a class I received a phone call from someone asking how to get the directions for a bordello quilt. I admit I had to ask her about 4 times to make sure she was saying bordello. After questioning her thoroughly, I finally figured out she was talking about a bargello quilt. She had seen the one I was making for my husband. I have also made place mats and a jacket for my daughter using this method. I have a jacket started for myself and a long wish list of bargellos I want to make.

    —Donna Rowe on July 25, 2013
  • Admired the Bargello quilts for many years. I relate to the one that reminded me of Glacier Bay after seeing the glaciers there a coupe years ago. Love the movement of the quilt. Your designs are the bet I have seen. Would love those fabrics to try one of the patterns.

    —Janice on July 25, 2013
  • Beautiful fabrics. Perfect for the Bargello quilts

    —Ruth Taylor on July 25, 2013
  • Wow, these are beautiful! I hope to be able to create something so beautiful in the future 🙂 Maybe someday I will be able to make a bargello quilt. The fabric is so beautiful too.

    —Kathy Gates on July 25, 2013
  • All the quilts shown are beautiful! If I had to pick one "Misty Morning" would win as my favorite. It would be fun to give this technique a try.

    —Rose Anne Henriksen on July 25, 2013
  • Many years ago I did needlepoint bargello projects. I love the look and would love to try making a bargello quilt.

    —Judy Allen on July 25, 2013
  • My mom used to do bargello needlepoint when I was growing up and I loved the patterns the designs created. I saw a picture of a rainbow bargello quilt and have wanted to do my own ever since. I’ve already got the fabric. But that doesn’t mean I wouldn’t love to win more fabric and a copy of the book too! Thank you for the opportunity!

    —Linda Cejnar on July 25, 2013
  • Love the look of bargello—have several patterns and books—have never made one because they look so overwhelming. Maybe it is time to try.

    —Corky on July 25, 2013
  • I have never made a Bargello quilt..however, I’m positive I could find something to make from these beautiful fabric strips if I should win them. Thanks for a great giveaway.

    —Marilyn Strain on July 25, 2013
  • I made a Bargello Heart Quilt for my 5th wedding anniversary back in 1998. The pattern came from Nancy Podolsky book. It turned out beautiful in a full size pinks and blues variation. But your brown and gold Island sunset is "to die for". I think it’s about time to try my hand at either Island sunset or definitely Argyle!!!!

    —Kerry on July 25, 2013
  • I’ve made 2 Bargello quilts, but with even width strips and using many scraps. One was for charity and the other was the second quilt I ever made for my daughter. I would love to make a planned quilt with more of the curved design elements that Eileen offers. Thank you for the chance to win the book and Tongas. I love Tongas.

    —Ames on July 25, 2013
  • I’m another person who has loved these quilts from afar! just couldn’t see myself cutting all those little squares, and what a wonderful surprise (and relief!) to discover I don’t need to! Now it’s something I WILL make sometime —-

    —Judy S on July 25, 2013
  • I’ve never made a bargello quilt but have done several small pieces for some quilted jackets.

    —Janice M on July 25, 2013
  • I’m fairly new to quilting, so there are so many quilts to sew on my to list, this being one. The only thing is my stash is pretty small, so until it grows a little I have to wait until I have enough variety to do so, maybe winning the fabric will get me started sooner rather than later!

    —Sharon V on July 25, 2013
  • I have never attempted a Bargello quilt. The book would be a must have to do it I am sure. In going through some of the UFOs I my Mother left me, I discovered the beginnings of such a quilt. I am sure that one was just practice and she made a beautiful one I never saw. lol

    Thank you for the chance to win the fantastic fabrics, and of course the book!!

    —Sally King on July 25, 2013
  • It has been on my wish list for a long time & maybe this year will be the year I finally achieve this goal. Thank you so much for this opportunity to win this beautiful fabric.

    —BevM on July 25, 2013
  • I didn’t know Bargello quilts had such beautiful patterns! I want to make one now, lol. I love that Glacier Bay pattern!

    —Jen on July 25, 2013
  • I have always been afraid to try Bargello quilts! Really enjoy the look, just seems to be hard to do.

    —Susan Brooks on July 25, 2013
  • Our guild made a bargello for a raffle a few years back and I helped with that one. It has been on my lest ever since. Those fabrics are gorgeous! I hope they become my bargello.

    Lori S on July 25, 2013
  • I loved bargello needlepoint and have been wanting to try a bargello quilt. The fabrics look amazing!

    —Carmen on July 25, 2013
  • Love the beauty and colors of these batik pieces..totally inspired to make this Barbello quilt.

    —Teresa Arneson on July 25, 2013
  • Since I saw the first Bargello quilt I have wanted to make one. They look very difficult, especially choosing the fabrics. I do enjoy a challenge though!

    —Pat on July 25, 2013
  • love the beautiful quilts. would love to make one….. now all I need is some fabric.

    —Helena on July 25, 2013
  • I have not attacked a Bargello quilt yet. They have seemed interesting yet impossible since my mother began to teach me about quilting in 2011. We enjoy visiting quilt shops in both our states for inspiration, and always stop at the Bargello quilts. My mother completed her first one that is a mountain scene with appliqued bears and rocks just last year. It hangs in their dining room. I love the idea of the twists and turns, and look forward to jumping into making one! I almost exclusively use batik fabric and love the Tonga Sea Glass line of Timeless Treasures. It would be a great inspiration to begin a Bargello quilt!

    —Nicole B on July 25, 2013
  • I have the book on its way, physically, and already have the e-book. I have never tried a bargello quilt but am looking forward to it thanks to the instructions! As always, great finds here.

    —Anne T on July 25, 2013
  • I have never done a Bargello quilt. I recently found a pattern for a fairly simple Bargello tablerunner that I would like to try. Thank you for the chance to win the wonderful Bargello ebook and the tonga treats fabric pack. Good luck everyone!

    —Wendy M on July 25, 2013
  • I made one before and just got the bug to make a second one, which is up on my design wall now. Mine are both fairly simple, but I am reminded from this post that they can be really elegantly complex. I would love to make more!

    —Rebecca on July 25, 2013
  • I saw my first Bargello quilt last month and would love to challenge myself by making one of these stunning quilts with the gorgeous fabrics!

    —Julie on July 25, 2013
  • I have a bargello quilt in my bucket list. I have made a "Bargello-like" quilt – trip around the world and loved it. I have also made a miniature bargello – used it to cover a notebook as a gift to a dear friend. She loved it! It was fun … and just fueled my desire to make a really nice large one!

    —Margaret on July 25, 2013
  • I have always loved the Bargello designs! I would be thrilled to be able to make a Bargello quilt for our bed! It would be absolutely wonderful to win the fabrics and the instruction book!

    —Linda on July 25, 2013
  • I never knew there were so many versions of the Bargello quilt. Love the Argyle pattern! It was just added to my list of "to-do"s…and not at the bottom. And that batik roll…WOW!

    Alisa H. on July 25, 2013
  • I haven’t made a Bargello quilt but I want to!

    —Karen on July 25, 2013
  • I’ve been looking at Bargello quilts for about 10 years, but have been thinking about making one for at least 5 years. Everybody says they are easier than it looks. One of these days.

    —Connie German on July 25, 2013
  • Reading this article makes one want to try Bargello quilts. They are beautiful. As you can tell, this is new to me.

    —Mary on July 25, 2013
  • I had never heard of a Bargello quilt till 2 years ago. I have not tried sewing one yet but winning the fabric to make it would certainly give me the initiative and motivation to try one! Wow!

    —Carolyn Williamson on July 25, 2013
  • I already have two bargello quilts cut out (king with matching wall hanging from batiks), but when I saw she was coming out with a new book – I just had to have it. Pre-ordered on Amazon as soon as it was posted. Got it yesterday. Her quilts are always eye candy to me. 🙂

    —Sue Gallagher on July 25, 2013
  • My quilt group made Bargello tote bags approximately 20 years ago. After getting my entire tote together I realized I had not staggered one of my strips before sewing. Being a perfectionist I proceeded to take the entire bag apart. To this day me fellow quilters tell new members about my need to do things correctly. since then I have made additional bags and some wall hangings.

    —Denise Latour on July 25, 2013
  • I have never made a Bargello quilt. I have thought they look really complicated but would love to try one. I think I would start with a baby quilt and work my way up to a larger quilt. Thanks for the giveaway.

    —Renea on July 25, 2013
  • I made a bargello tote bag once but have never tried anything bigger. These photos are inspiring me to do that. Gorgeous! Thanks for the awesome giveaway.

    —Pam on July 25, 2013
  • Fear of the great unknown! I have two Bargello kits sitting in my sewing room and just didn’t know how to get started. The finished product looks beautiful, the process quite daunting. That’s till I read this post! A cold weekend again – it’s time to tackle this project!!!

    —Bronwyn Parsons on July 25, 2013
  • The only bargello that I have done is a small one of the northern lights from an Alaskan designer, a few years ago. I would love the sea glass line of fabrics as I am a Pisces and love many things watery/blues.

    —marjorie on July 25, 2013
  • Oh I would love to win this prize. Those quilts are so awesome!

    Merry Gay on July 25, 2013
  • I started a bargello quilt as a *mystery* quilt years ago with Heather Montano. It never got finished — but I’d love to make one with those lovely batiks for a Sailor on the USS George Washington!

    Aunt Marti @ 52 Quilts on July 25, 2013
  • My first large quilt top was a trip around the world. It let me know how wonderful moving into the world of Bargello could be. I love the gradations of color and movement created with Bargello. Would love to win this fabric giveaway and push myself to create my first Bargellow top. Good luck to all who are entering!

    —Margaret M on July 25, 2013
  • I made a bargello in greens and dark purple for a graduation gift and I also made a bargello in blacks & whites for a jacket for my mother. I think it might be time for another bargello. Such fun.

    —Mary Dahlberg on July 25, 2013
  • Yes, I have made bargello quilts just to see if I could. LOL Such fun!

    —Karol on July 25, 2013
  • A Bargello quilt is certainly high on my gonna do list. Every time I see one I am amazed at how arranging fabric can result in such a miraculous design. What a perfect way to start my retirement in a few months.

    —Tommie Cooper on July 25, 2013
  • Love the sea glass fabrics. They would make a beautiful Bargello quilt and I have always wanted to try one!

    —Sally L on July 25, 2013
  • I have made a bagello flag wallhanging and a shirt with the yoke a bargello design. The first question, after "did you make that?" is "How did you do such small pieces."

    Donna Olson on July 25, 2013
  • I have had one of these on the to-do list for about a year, but can’t seem to get the fabrics together.

    —OHSue on July 25, 2013
  • I am a late bloomer when it comes to bargello. After 10+ years of quilting I just recently discovered the beauty of batik fabrics. To me, bargello quilts just scream out "make me in batiks", so I’m ready to give it a try.

    —claire on July 25, 2013
  • Always thought the Bargello quilt was the best looking quilt ever,but thought it was too hard. But want to try and heard with these instructions I could do it.

    —Samantha Z. on July 25, 2013
  • I do love Bargello quilts, but haven’t attempted one yet. Would love to win the book and fabric!

    —laurie on July 25, 2013
  • I made a Bargello quilt in 1996. I still remember the lady in the shop telling me about needing a "zinger" fabric to make the quilt "zing". I have had so many compliments about the quilt and had it in a couple of quilt displays. It has been used a lot as a snuggle rug and is now showing its age and is a bit faded. I have wanted make "Bargello with a twist" but haven’t been brave enough to try.

    —Wilma on July 25, 2013
  • My mother and I made heart bargello quilts together. Hers is a large wall hanging. Mine was a queen size bed quilt. It was used and loved until it was full of holes. Time to make another.

    —Kathy Washam on July 25, 2013
  • They are beautiful. I recently set up my craft room and this would be a wonderful project to undertake. Simply gorgeous.

    —Anne Z on July 25, 2013
  • Years ago I purchased all the supplies for a Bargello quilt class – then at the last minute the class was cancelled ;o(

    So I’m ready to dive it and really get it done this time!

    Terry SailingKnitter on July 25, 2013
  • Love the Tonga Sea Glass fabrics. I have never made a Bargello quilt, but would love to try with those fabrics.

    —Sally L on July 25, 2013
  • I saw a Bargello quilt once a very long time ago. I remember studying the construction and thinking…I will never have the time to make one. A few years later, my mother-in-law passed away in Thailand. I had been very ill and my doctors thought it unwise for me to travel, so, my husband took our three children to Thailand for 3 weeks. I now had the time! I totally completed a 54″ square quilt using bright color in the three weeks they were gone. It was completed Aug 30, 2002 and named "My Thai Biorhythm Quilt". Now that the children are out of the nest, it may be time to make one with a pattern. I’m sure it would be easier.

    —Susan K on July 25, 2013
  • I have made only one bargello quilt which was taught by a member of my Quilt Guild. I love them. I couldn’t wait to see if I won the book so I just purchased it! Can’t wait to get my hands on it!
    Sea Glass is one of my favorite color schemes. To do a bargello with this group of fabrics would make me one happy woman.

    —Carol on July 25, 2013
  • Wow these are gorgeous! I would love to make the Glacier Bay bargello quilt. it reminds Me of the glaciers we saw in Alaska!

    Donna B on July 25, 2013
  • In order to justify making a quilt I have to use it as a teaching aid. I made a Bargello quilt about 15 years ago as a sample for a class. They are simple "if" you can cut and sew a straight line. The finished top was later sold so I am ready to make another. I must say, I really like the "Argyle" pattern.

    —Deana Steel on July 25, 2013
  • My first (and only) Bargello quilt was made about 12 years ago. It was one of my first quilts! Quilts are so special to me and make the best "loved" gifts. My sister was having a terrible bout with female trouble and was quite down. Her favorite color is purple. So 24 cuts of purple plus a pattern turned into a beautiful quilt! Bonnie was so touched! Later the doc decided the baby factory had to go and the quilt was a perfect friend after surgery!

    —Shirley Pearce on July 25, 2013
  • I just learned to do Bargello quilts and now anything else doesn’t seem to be the challenge that they are. I love trying out variations to see how they are going to come out. Think I am hooked on Bargello.

    —Muriel on July 25, 2013
  • I want to make a Bargello quilt. I love the colors and designs in this book! I’ve done flag quilts, that are similar to Bargello, I guess. Didn’t think about that before, but I wanted it to look like it’s waving. Thanks so much for the inspiration!

    —Maryellen on July 25, 2013
  • I think they are gorgeous but I haven’t made one so far, maybe one day.

    —MoeWest on July 25, 2013
  • Those are gorgeous fabrics. My list of "to do" quilts continues to grow, but those fabrics would put a bargello quilt right at the top of the list!

    —Arlene on July 25, 2013
  • I have made a couple of simple Bargellos and enjoyed it. I do love these quilts and expecially "Misty Morning" –it’s gorgeous.

    —Linda on July 25, 2013
  • I LOVE batiks and have always wanted to try a bargello quilt. Would be wonderful to win this and get me started right.

    —Kathy H on July 25, 2013
  • These quilts have been on my list forever and ever. Finding the gradations of color is the issue in Panama. It is tough to even find solids much less a range of colors. But I am collecting for the big day. I may just have to use prints that will read as solids when cut that small. I have 12 UFO’s as we speak so it is out there somewhere in my future.

    —Marianne Brown on July 25, 2013
  • I have not made a Bargello anything yet. I had a touch of "would I be able to figure it out" syndrome! I first saw a Bargello quilt probably about 2 years ago and I was very intrigued, it was beautiful. Would really like to win the give away so I could make my first Bargello piece 🙂

    —Nancy on July 25, 2013
  • I made my first bargello as the back of a vest I was making to wear to the Mid-Atlantic quilt show in the 90s. I followed the directions in a book, I think it was called Jacket Jazz. I have had numerous complements whenever I wear it!

    —Kathy on July 25, 2013
  • I find the bargello quilts intriguing but have never made one. This book looks like the incentive I might need. Hope to win the book.

    —Jill on July 25, 2013
  • I LOVE bargello… i have made several projects over the years but my favorite hangs on the wall in my quilt room…always intrigues me to see the movement in this quilt. I’m ready to start a new one.

    —Carole on July 25, 2013
  • For years I admired bargello quilts but have been afraid to make one. As I have learned more and more techniques they aren’t quite so intimidating. So a bargello quilt has been added to my bucket list earlier this year and hope that i can check that one off my list. Trouble is they are so versatile, will one be enough?

    —Alonna on July 25, 2013
  • I took a class on Bargello about 5 years ago and made the sample. But now I would like to make one again, but am very hesitant to cut into my fabrics for fear of making a mistake. I need very clear directions!

    —Rita Barth on July 25, 2013
  • I have made a table runner, wall art and a bed quilt. It is fun and was very easy. My wall art is music theme and my favorite.

    —Linda Christianson on July 25, 2013
  • Oh My Stars!!! What a beautiful concept in quilting!! It’s not just pieces of fabric… it’s art!! The first thing I thought of when I saw this is "I MUST DO ONE OF THESE FOR CASEY". That’s my daughter who will leave soon to go to the other side of the globe to "love on" a particular people group. We won’t see her for the first two to three years and we have to be very careful what she takes with her. I will be purchasing your book soon to learn your techniques and stitch a "map" or "globe" or "landscape" type quilt to send on her journey across the world!!! The fabric set would be a true blessing (as I am ill equipped to choose from a store full of fabulous fabrics!! haha) and I could begin her quilt much sooner. Thank you for the offer! and the idea!! CAN’T WAIT! Margie

    —Margie on July 25, 2013
  • A Bargello quilt is on my "to do " list. Hopefully I will get to it sooner than later.
    Thanks for the giveaway.

  • I have not attempted a bargello quilt yet, but have drooled over the patterns for some time now. I would love to make one as a gift for my son, if I ever get the courage to try.

  • I have a UFO Bargello. It started to take a twist and ended up in the corner. Thanks to the inspiration of the beautiful quilts shown I will start on it again. I did help with a beautiful Bargello that our quilt guild did for a raffle. I would love to win the book and fabric combo!

    —Betty Anne on July 25, 2013

  • It only took one bargello quilt class to make me a believer. On the other hand, having so many coordinating fabrics in my stash inevitably leads to their being grabbed for another project before I can get back to the bargello books. Then I have to build up a coordinated fabric stash all over again! Did I mention I love my LQS, and they love me?

    —Lynne on July 25, 2013
  • I’ve wanted to make one for about two years, since I saw my first one, they are so beautiful. Thanks.

    —Dana on July 25, 2013
  • Yes, I’ve made several from Eileen’s book. Great instructions, great quilts. I frequently offer a class from this book. Looking forward to the new book – shop has it on order but I may buy it at IQA Long Beach. Wish I could attach a picture of my turquoise blue and green quilt. Everyone loves it.

    —Gracie on July 25, 2013
  • I recently completed my first Bargello, a queen size, for my daughter and son-in-law. For weeks I was intimidated by even thought of attempting it but was pleasantly surprised that it wasn’t that difficult once I got started. I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed the process and am eagerly anticipating the next Bargello! The "Tonga Sea Glass" collection would make a stunning quilt for myself. Great contest!

    —Colleen Natarelli on July 25, 2013
  • I’ve never made one but have always wanted to ever since a dear friend of mine showed me the one she made. It’s absolutely stunning! I have a pattern ready to go, just need to pick out the fabric and go for it!

    Susan Mulvihill on July 25, 2013
  • I love – love – love bargello quilts.I’ve never done one with batiks — these are spectacular.

    —Pam Iverson on July 25, 2013
  • Love, love Bargello quilts!

    —Karen on July 25, 2013
  • I’ve made 2 Bargello Quilts and have collected pictures,patterns and books of many others I’d like to make. Life is just too short!

    —Jeri Ciraolo on July 25, 2013
  • Wow, I’ve wanted to dive into Bargello quilting yet have felt it to be so intimidating. I’d love to try. Thanks for the chance to win the fabric and book!

    —Christina in Cleveland on July 25, 2013
  • One of my first quilts was a Bargello quilt and I loved the process and the results so much that its one of my favorite units to make.

    —Connie Herron on July 25, 2013
  • I am sew in LOVE with Bargellos and Batiks!! I am just finishing my second one now and have another one already in my head as a ‘work in progress’ :). I have been eyeing off the Sea Glass collection for a while as it would make a truly elegant bargello – gives me goose bumps thinking of it!!

    —Linda Kay on July 25, 2013
  • These quilts pictured above are amazing. I’ve looked at other bargello quilts before but was too intimidated by them. Now I read that they are easy with strip piecing so I may get the courage to try one soon. You are making a quilter out of me, for sure!

    —Clara Bryan on July 25, 2013
  • Stunning! I’ve never made one, but it’s on my list!

    Karen in Breezy Point on July 25, 2013
  • I have wanted to make a Bargello quilt for ages, I just haven’t had the confidence to give it a try. I think a copy of More Twist-and-Turn Bargello Quilts and those gorgeous fabrics would help give my confidence a boost!

    Thanks for the chance to win!

    Linda Pawlak on July 25, 2013
  • I would love to try a Bargello quilt, never had the time. Might try it soon!
    Elaine

    —Elaine Chapman on July 25, 2013
  • Have always wanted to try a Bargello quilt but the thought of picking out all those fabrics scares me. To win this pack would just be a wonderful thing because then I could make a Bargello!

    —Ann on July 25, 2013
  • I’ve been wanting to make a bargello quilt since my sister made one about two years ago. This fabric would be an awesome way to start!

    —Kate on July 25, 2013
  • The only Bargello I have ever done was in needlepoint but quilting has been my passion for the about the last ten years. I would love to try my hand at this technique. I love the green argyle quilt. Green is my all-time favorite color and the range from greens to blue is high on my list of favored combinations.

    —Beth Burnett on July 25, 2013
  • I have never made a quilt like these but am certainly interested! Beautiful!

    —Sharmond on July 25, 2013
  • I have never made a Bargello quilt, but I think they are beautiful. The Argyle quilt design is my favorite, I love its graduation of colors.

    —Kaye M. on July 25, 2013
  • A Bargello quilt is on my bucket list. There are too many quilts, not enough time to go around yet! Just planning for the future. Thanks
    for the chance to win.

    Sharon h on July 25, 2013
  • I have two bargello books that I look at. I study the process of making the graduated color strips so that I more fully understand how to do it, but I have not "jumped into the water" as yet. I would love to win fabric that is coordinated specifically for a bargello quilt. I know that finding coordinating fabrics is one reason I have not started one.

    —Janet T on July 25, 2013
  • I haven’t yet taken the challenge of making a Bargello quilt yet, but they certainly have a beautiful look. I love Tonga Treats. They are beautiful as well.

    —Joanna on July 25, 2013
  • I have made a small bargello quilt….it was a Waving Flag pattern and made a lovely US flag which my son hung on our entryway wall when he joined the Air Force 4 years ago. I would love to make a larger one though, maybe for the sofa and TV watching 😀

    —candace on July 25, 2013
  • what a great collection to add to my stash. The possibilities are endless.

    —Victoria Johnson on July 25, 2013
  • I’ve looked at patterns in the past, and wondered if I would be able to adjust the size, or would I be stuck with the size that the pattern called for. The ones pictured here are fantastic, and I think now I could appreciate them no matter what size they are.

    —Glenda in Florida on July 25, 2013
  • I love the look of bargello quilts but never seem to get around to making one. Winning this fabric pack would give me the incentive I need to make one.

    —Nancy McCallum on July 25, 2013
  • Great give away!

    —Sandy Overturf on July 25, 2013
  • I’ve loved the look of bargello from the first time I saw a needlepoint project made using that technique. I haven’t made a bargello quilt yet, but it is definitely on my quilting bucket list!

    —Barb Johnson on July 25, 2013
  • I have made a couple of bargello quilts but never a twisted one. This is too exciting of an offer not to enter.

    —Nancy McCrillis on July 25, 2013
  • At my first Quilt Guild Meeting they had a lady giving a lesson on making a bargello quilt.I was overwhelmed but winning the beautiful fabric would means it is time to make it ——- after 20 years.

    —Connie Rhea on July 25, 2013
  • I love strip sets, but I always thought bargello was too complicated, or would take up more space than I have available. This gives me the impression that it’s easier than I thought. Definitely going on my to-do list!

    Lisa on July 25, 2013
  • I absolutely love Bargello quilts, but the closet I ever came was my very first quilt, a Trip Around the World! That was at least 20 years ago, and now I just look at them in awe! The book would be quite an inspiration. I would be so proud if I did one!

    —Karen Bowen on July 25, 2013
  • Okay I was at a quilt shop and saw a beautiful Bargello quilt. I was ready to buy the pattern and fabric kit. The shop was out of the pattern. Needless to say I haven’t made the Bargello quilt. So maybe with an easy to follow book and the fabric bundle I can make the quilt instead of just dreaming of it.

    —Rita Scott on July 25, 2013
  • Many years ago I made a needlepoint bargello pillow and eventually wore it out by constantly petting it – there is something so soothing and calming about the color changes and flow of the design that hums to me. When I began teaching myself how to quilt, I saw that my old love, the bargello, was something I could create with fabric. I was thrilled and look forward to the day I will start on my bargello quilt. I’ve been working on my quilting skills so when it’s time for me to create my next bargello, I will be worthy of the design and able to make a beautiful, flowing design that will fill me with wonder and joy for a very long time.

    —MadamSew'n'Sew on July 25, 2013
  • I had always wanted to try a bargello, so with our quilt guild offering a workshop, I jumped in and bought lots of lovely pinks through to browns and whites……I was thinking it would make a beautiful quilt, or at least, a wall hanging. After drawing up the design and working on it for the day, cutting and piecing and stripping(all legit, I promise!) I opened up my panel to reveal my design…….and everyone burst into laughter……..my design looked like a pair of boobs!!!!! Hence I’ve named it….the breast of friends!!!!! However, it’s still unfinished and is a Work In Progress!!!! One day my boobs will hang proud!

    Wendy B on July 25, 2013
  • I made a six piece set of quilt as you go Bargello placemats and enjoyed putting it together so I think I’ll go one step further and make a quilt!

    —Rochelle on July 25, 2013
  • I have never made a bargello quilt, but they are beautiful and I would love to try. thanks for the giveaway

    —DebV on July 25, 2013
  • I bought your first book and was so excited to try one of the designs but was too scared to begin and I could not find the color combinations that I wanted. I would love to try again and this time I won’t fail. They are so fascinating to be used for any project.

    —Lois Ricketts on July 25, 2013
  • I’ve never made a Bargello quilt but WOW, they look really awesome!! I’ll have to put it on my wish list!!!

    —Sandi Martin on July 25, 2013
  • I’ve not yet done bargello, but I love the look of it and would like to give it a go.

    Rachelle - Warming Crafts on July 25, 2013
  • I made a bargello quilt and showed it to my quilt group in Mt. Horeb, Wisconsin. They went crazy over it. So we then had a workshop on bargello and there were so many beautiful quilts made and more are still being made. Of the 20 women in the workshop, about 15 bargello quilts were made. Each as different and as beautiful as the next. I am afraid to show them a more difficult looking one because I know they will all want to try it. Bargello is almost magical in its results, starting with the simple strip sets to the finished piece. It is amazing to see people begin to understand the process and then go beyond what the teacher has taught. Quilting is a constant learning process and it is so wonderful to be associated with a group that is so willing to try anything at least once.

    —LuWayne on July 25, 2013
  • WOW! Love Bargello’s. Never made one, but there is always the first time!

    —Kathie on July 25, 2013
  • I have made a hundred quilts in my head with this fabric!!! I love just dreaming about it…

    —Denise Gerdon on July 25, 2013
  • Holy cow – they’re spectacular! I’ve long admired them, I didn’t really feel the "need" to make a bargello before seeing these beauties, but now, I’ve gotta do at least the argyle one! And maybe the bed runner & pillowcase set.

    Karin on July 25, 2013
  • Always wanted to do a Bargello quilt. These are just beautiful and making me think again to put on the "wanted list". Would love to win the book and the fabric, would be the put to the top of the list and something else would become a PHd (Project Half Done).

    —LizAnn L. on July 25, 2013
  • I need to get up enough courage to try a quilt. I’ve made a Bargello table runner.

    —karen on July 25, 2013
  • Unbeknownst to me, my first quilt design, was a Bargello. My big mistake was trying to quilt it on a long arm using the same color thread for each of the 5 colors. I learned, one cannot do all the individual colors at the ssme time, for the quilt bunches in the rollup. I have over 47 thread changes in that one small lap quilt.

    My second Bargello looked similiar to the light colored row of the Argyle quilt with the "M" mountains or "V" valleys on top for my grandson. He liked the V -M – V look, and is how I put his label on it to distinguish the top and bottom of his quilt.

    My third Bargello was called a 4-way, where 4 panels are made, using 15 different colors, mirror image to each other with the smallest centered finished strip being 1/4 inch. These panels are diagonaly cross-cut into forming an absolutely gorgeous new look Bargello quilt. Unfortunately, there was no pattern; our teacher taught by word of mouth and I’ve never found a pattern for this quilt’s design.

    When I pick out my fabric colors, my neat fabric room looks like a Burglar was looking for something with fabrics strown everywhere and with the Timeless Treasure generous donation, that problem would be solved so I could make either the Island Sunrise or Argyle Bargello. I’ve always wanted to make a Bargello design quilt like these.

    Eileen Wright’s Bargello’s with a Twist are gorgeous designed quilts and I’d love to have this book.

    Keep smiling,

    Lynnita Shipman on July 25, 2013
  • What beautiful work! Just amazing!

    —Cheryl Gallegos on July 25, 2013
  • Would like to get down to the nitty gritty and get going on a Bargello quilt! Please send it all my way

    —Pat Coppola on July 25, 2013
  • This has been on my to-do list for a very long time. Before I quilted, I used to do needlepoint, and bargello was my favourite!

    —Laurel Marsolais on July 25, 2013
  • I have always loved the Bargello quilts, but never thought I was experienced enough to try one before. i think now that I am accomplished enough to go for it and would love to win the book and the fabric. They are just beautiful!

    —Judy Davis on July 25, 2013
  • I have made a bargello quilt and it came out so beautiful. I started on my first quilt retreat with the lovely ladies from the Cotton Patch Quilt Guild in Greenville, Texas. I had just purchased the kit prior to attending the retreat, and I was able to cut the Queen Sized Quilt and complete the top in less than 24 hours. I do have to say that I am a "Power Sewer" and am able to put those tops together quickly. Now I just have to get it quilted.

    —Phyllis M. on July 25, 2013
  • I have not been quilting a long time, but I think Bargello Quilts are beautiful and I would like to make one for my son, who is a stroke survivor.

    —Bert Mayberry on July 25, 2013
  • I have done bargello placemats, but never a full quilt. These look gorgeous. Thanks so much for sharing

    —Bonnie Larson on July 25, 2013
  • I have always wanted to make a bargello quilt – it’s on my "bucket list". I am a batik collector and if I am the lucky winner, I will be thrilled to use these in a bargello quilt. Winning a book also is wonderful. Thank you for the chance! 🙂

    —Karen Schultz on July 25, 2013
  • I have always loved the look of bargellos….just never brave enough to try it. Would love to get the book to learn this technique!

    —Jane on July 25, 2013
  • took me quite a long time to scroll to the bottom, but i made it. if i win i add this to my bcollection of batiks and can finally make my quilt. beutiful colors in the collection.

    —cynthia daugherty on July 25, 2013
  • This fabric is just gorgeous. Would be lovely to sew it up in one of these patterns.

    —Janet Blatti on July 25, 2013
  • I bought the first Twist and Turn Bargello book a couple years ago and have looked through it and admired the quits countless times. Finally just this last Monday, I bit the bullet and started my version of "Surf Song". I am halfway done and it is great fun. I would love the second book and fabrics to start me on my second Bargello!

    —Janine on July 25, 2013
  • I’ve had a Bargello quilt on my "wanna make" list for sometime. I did a lot of needlepoint several years ago and Bargello was one of my favorites. It would be exciting to make a quilt!

    —Fran R on July 25, 2013
  • I made my first bargello about 25 years ago. It was fun to see the design emerge. i have to wonder about the pollution on the glaciers though, I live in Alaska and that is just the natural coloring and not from the pollution. I’m thinking its time to make some more bargello twists now.

    —Connie isenhour on July 25, 2013
  • I am in awe of those who can make these quilts. I haven’t started to believe it’s easy, as some say, but maybe someday I will be brave and tackle it. They are so beautiful. The one in my local quilt shop is inspiring!

    —Nancy on July 25, 2013
  • I would love to make a Bargello quilt I. Those sea glass colors…. I’ve been looking at that fabric color way for my next quilt for my bed!

    —Robin M on July 25, 2013
  • I, too, love Bargellos quilts-and they are on my bucket list –perhaps a project for winter days. I love how the colors flow like ocean waves.

    —Jill Meador on July 25, 2013
  • A bargello quilt been on my bucket list for a while. I’ve never made one. Maybe this is just the opportunity to fix that!
    Thanks for the giveaway.

    —Deborah on July 25, 2013
  • On my quilting bucket list to make one of these. Hoping to get one done for an X-Mas present! Thanks for the giveaway!

    —Chris Chambers on July 25, 2013
  • This is the first time I’ve ever heard of this type of quilt. They are beautiful! I especially like the Alaska quilt as I lived there for 30 years! Would love to make one of these beauties!

    —Nancy D on July 25, 2013
  • I made a Bargello heart many years ago….It is hung every valentines day! Recently I made a simple small Bargello wall quilt for an ugly fabric challenge. I would love to do an intricate Bargello and challenge myself.

    —Noni on July 25, 2013
  • The fabrics you are giving away are just stunning!!! I would bet every quilter would love to have them. I have not made a bargello quilt yet but it has been on my list for some time now. Wouldn’t mind having these fabrics to make one with.

    —Karen L. on July 25, 2013
  • I’m fairly new at quilting – have done a lot of needlework bargello – love the look and love the gorgeous batiks. Made a bargello quilt to give as a wedding gift – no pattern which wasn’t a good idea for a first try [and it was my third quilt ever] but after several repaired mistakes I was happy with the finished quilt and the newlyweds thought it was stunning. Since then I have purchased a few bargello patterns and will try another one soon.

    —D. L. Grzybowski on July 25, 2013
  • I have made one bargello quilt but would like to make more. The quilts in this book are very inspiring.

    —Karen S on July 25, 2013
  • I have never made a Bargello quilt, but would certainly love to do so. They always looked intimidating. My favorite of the quilts shown above is "Love Song". I also really like "Arglye" and "Island Sunrise".

    —Susan on July 25, 2013
  • I am anxious to learn how to make a Bargello quilt. The ebb and flow off the patterns are a beautiful rhythm to the eyes and the emotion. Seeing the small quilt patterns make me believe I as a new quilter after retiring can do this.

    —Sarah Allen on July 25, 2013
  • I have never made a bargello but would love o try. Especially with that tonga treat.Yummy

    —JANET on July 25, 2013
  • Hi! I took a class with Eileen last April and made an amazing bargello quilt. I love the technique and the dramatic results. Eileen had photos of some of the quilts she was working on for this new book, and I’m really excited it’s out now! Thank you for the giveaway!

    —Paula on July 25, 2013
  • I have never made a bargello quilt. I do like the green one. That would be a nice one to make.

    —Kathy on July 25, 2013
  • The above bargellos are breathtaking. I would love to tackle a one!

    I frequently introduce myself in quilting groups/circles by saying "Hi, I’m Sharyle. I’m a batikaholic". Batiks are my favorite fabrics.

    I grow dahlias and give away tubers every year. I always tell people they don’t need to pay me for them – I am just glad they are going to a good home. The book and batiks would certainly be finding a good home with me if I am lucky enough to win them.

    —Sharyle Kingston on July 25, 2013
  • Intellectually I know Bargello quilts are easy but they look so complicated that I remain Intimidated. My mother loves bargello’s so I would like to get over my insecurities and learn how to do one.

    —Beth Miller on July 25, 2013
  • Every since my sister made one I have wanted to make one to, thanks

    —barbara woods on July 25, 2013
  • I haven’t been quilting very long and never thought I would even like quilting but after my first class I was hooked. There is a Bargello quilt hanging in the class room and I have admired it and wondered if I would ever get good enough to attempt making one. I really do think all the patterns I have seen are breathtaking. There’s so much movement in each pattern but also a very calming look, too. I would love to make one for my older sister for her birthday next June. She will be 79 and she loves quilts. She ask me all the time when I am going to make her one. Maybe she has earned a Bargello quilt and I would love to be the one to make one for her. Linda Perkins

    —Linda Perkins on July 25, 2013
  • I made a tiny 8 fabric Bargello quilt when I was just learning to quilt in 2009. Then in 2011 I took a class and made a 20-fabric Bargello quilt top in a class – it was a blast & I am dying to make another one! My little one is hanging in my local quilt shop and once I finish quilting the lap size it will hang in my shop as well. Can’t wait to win my next Bargello book!

    —Joy Bradley on July 25, 2013
  • never tried bargello yet, but would love to. Would SO love to win!

    Aviva on July 25, 2013
  • I have been intrigued by Bargello quilts for at least 10 years. My late mother in law got me interested in quilting and she made several trip around the world quilts that remind me of Bargello. What beautiful quilts in this book!!

    —Peggy Sego on July 25, 2013
  • I’ve always wanted to make one of these quilts after I saw one at a local quilt show. It was spectacular–much like the "misty morning" above. Thanks for the opportunity to win the batik bundle.

    —Clara Chandler on July 25, 2013
  • Hello Jenny,
    I love the Bargello Quilts and would love to try and make a Bargello quilt of my own. The book from: Eileen Wright, More Twist-and-Turn, Bargello quilts, I would love to receive, I have not seen it yet in the bookstores here in Hollaad. I live in Europe (the Netherlands) and the technique is not used often here in the Netherlands but that would not hold me back to give it a try.
    Thanks for the opportunity to make a comment.
    Love and Hugs from Jos , in the Netherlands

    —Jos Voshol on July 25, 2013
  • Beautiful book and fabrics . . . a sea glass bargello quilt would be a nice reminder of summer year round. I saw a beautiful bargello/twist quilt at a show last weekend and would like to make one!

    —Sara on July 25, 2013
  • This posting reminds me that I have a bargello lap quilt in my UFO pile. It’s summery colors would be perfect to work on this time of year!

    —Pat Smith on July 25, 2013
  • I have done a small twin size quilt. Loved doing it. Looks complicated but is very easy to do. Would love to do another one!

    —Diana Allen on July 25, 2013
  • Beautiful; I always admire Eileen’s Bargello Quilts…. The new book is
    a must…. Maybe someday I will attempt one…
    So proud to know Eileen

    —Marilyn on July 25, 2013
  • I’ve never made a Bargello quilt but would to try the method someday. I did do a needlepoint Bargello sampler years ago. The flow of colors creates a beautiful effect, especially the variation you have done.

    —Karen on July 25, 2013
  • I have not made one, but looks like it might be time to try a Bargello quilt!

    —Lynne Johnson on July 25, 2013
  • I so wanted a beautiful bargello quilt. I live on Social Security and knew I could never afford to purchase one so I decided to try and make one. So, I made a Diamonds Jubilee by Jan Smith. It’s truly magnificent. I’m not a quilter but I so want to make your green bargello, Argyle. I need that book and fabric.

    —Daphine Stewart on July 25, 2013
  • I’ve always really liked bargello quilts, and would love to make one at some point. I design my own quilts, so I imagine at some point I’ll develop one in EQ7 at some point and give it a try.

    —marla whalen on July 25, 2013
  • I’ve loved bargello patterns since I first saw one in needlepoint, and in quilts it’s even better. I haven’t made one yet, but I’d love to try, especially with that gorgeous fabric!

    —Kathy on July 25, 2013
  • I have never made one but love the looks of them. Would love to give it a try.

    —Julie A. on July 25, 2013
  • A bargello quilt AKA wall hanging is definitely on my bucket list of quilts AKA wall hangings to make. Love the symmetry and movement of them. But looks like something to make when I’m home alone and can think a complete thought.

    —MK on July 25, 2013
  • I once made a bargello landscape quilt that won a blue ribbon — but then I moved on to other types of landscapes. This book could tempt me to go back and try bargello again.

    —Carol Barringer on July 25, 2013
  • I have not made a bargello quilt yet. It has always seemed to intimidating–getting the right color cominations, cutting just right and then sewing them together right. I admire them and at least one is on my to do list.

    Tammy Siria on July 25, 2013
  • I haven’t made a bargello quilt, but I have had one on my list for about 10 years now. I think I would start with something smaller than a quilt, though, maybe a table runner or bed runner.

    —Sandy A in St. Louis on July 25, 2013
  • I love bargellos. They are my favorite kind of quilt. I have pieced 12, and completed the custom quilting on six. I have even taught two guild workshops on bargellos. I’m eager to get new bargello patterns, and the fabric is so luscious.

    —Denise Smart on July 25, 2013
  • I used to do bargello patterns in needlepoint and have always loved them. Making a bargello quilt is high on my "list" of quilts I want to do – the fabrics are beautiful too!! The combination of the book and fabric will make a stunning quilt

    —Jean HS on July 25, 2013
  • I’ve been quilting for almost 6 years now and a Bargello quilt has been on my wish list now for 2 years. This book and fabric would be just the thing I need to get started. Thanks for the giveaway.

    —Cecilia on July 25, 2013
  • Long ago BQ (before quilting) I loved to do Bargello needlepoint and have been waiting to design my own Bargello quilt from those patterns. Love her Bargello designs especially.

    —Sandy on July 25, 2013
  • Never made one. These are seriously beautiful ones.

    Mystica on July 25, 2013
  • Oh my! Bargello quilts make my mouth water! Especially with all the juicy batiks I’ve been collecting for "someday." I wold love to get this book to follow the recipes for all those delicious quilts.

  • I LOVE the look and intricacies of bargello, but have not made one yet. Most of the quilts I make are for Quilts of Valor, and this seems like too many small pieces (even with strip piecing). I did make a flag wall hanging that has the red and white stripes made in a bargello manner. I’m waiting to find "The" pattern and color way that will call me to accomplish this and who to make it for.

    Barbara Winkler on July 25, 2013
  • I have never made one but it is on my list to try. I love that Glacier one It makes me want to give it a try right now.

    —Margaret Schindler on July 25, 2013
  • I am currently working on a wall hanging of my version of St. Basil’s Cathedral and I used the Bargello style to create a colorful sunrise in the sky.

    —Betty Ruth Boyett on July 25, 2013
  • I made a Bargello quilt about 20 years ago in one of the earliest classes I have taken. I love Bargello and would look forward to making new projects.

    —Kristin M on July 25, 2013
  • I have never made a Bargello quilt. I love the looks of them but making one is in the far future until my piecing abilities improve a lot. thelady at hotmail.com

    —Marjorie Nath on July 25, 2013
  • I love bargello quilts – the movement is just awesome! I have one bargello in progress, made with some Northcott Stonehenge. The Tonga Treats are perfect for another bargello. Thank you!

    —Cindy Prince on July 25, 2013
  • I have never made a bargello quilt but I like the look of them and would really like to try to make one. I think I’d start with a wall hanging size first and progress from there.

    —Patti F on July 25, 2013
  • Bargello is on my list of quilts to make this fall!

    Terry Flaherty on July 25, 2013
  • Wow … just stunning!

    —Janet on July 25, 2013
  • I have a lovely one in mind just need some of that nice fabric… Oh and a little time!

    —Kathy on July 25, 2013
  • I’ve never made a Bargello quilt. Some styles really interest me while others are just ok. Someday I’ll do one

    Sarah Austin on July 25, 2013
  • I made my first attempt following a pattern in a magazine! It was for a friends wedding and I finished it off with a braided border. It turned out great and the couple and more loved it. I have done one table runner since but still need to find my way with this type of quilt piecing as I flounder a bit. It is fun and colors play nice. Will give it more chances I am sure in the future but in no way am I a bargello artist, still mostly just a groupie! LOL

    —Tonie Peterson on July 25, 2013
  • Back in the early ’90s I made 2 bed quilts from a book called "Strip Quilting" by Diane Wold which were really bargello quilts. I’ve since made a wall hanging and have the fabric for another bed quilt collected. That project is about number 15 on the ‘to do’ list!!

    —Lynda McNab on July 25, 2013
  • Bargello quilts are so beautiful and the batiks awesome! I haven’t made one yet, but I’d love to. It’s on my list of quilts to make!

    —Susan Stanton on July 25, 2013
  • Bargello is one of my favorite patterns. I have made about 7 of them, and plan to make more. Would love to win fabric to use in my next one!

    —Karen Reed on July 25, 2013
  • Yes I have made a Bargello Quilt and really enjoyed doing so. It was the Twisted Ribbon pattern. It is now in the possession of our Grand daughter and her husband as a wedding gift.
    I don’t know why I haven’t made another one, it was very easy, the most difficult part was getting all the right fabric colors together. This is the hardest part of the project for me.
    I guess it is time to bite the bullet and do another one.

    —Marion Barclay on July 25, 2013
  • I made a bargello quilt focused around a table cloth I wanted to recycle. I LOVE it and had the BEST time slecting other fabrics to coordinate with my ‘recycled’ fabric!

    —sue on July 25, 2013
  • I have just started quilting, have made 2 jelly roll quilts and am now started on a traditional quilt! Saw these beautiful quilts and just know that as soon as I finish the current project I will be looking to start any one of these! I love the soothing feeling I get when I look at these, something about the designs speaks to me! Winner or not, I will be making one of them soon, so beautiful, thank you so much for sharing your inspirations and finished project with us!

    Lois

    —Lois G on July 25, 2013
  • Yes, I’ve made a bargello quilt. I used a couple of shades of purple, gold, greens & a cream. It’s beautiful! Quilted it with gold thread.

    Alicia Key on July 25, 2013
  • I have never made a Bargello quilt, but it looks beautiful. Would love to win the book and material to make one. Thanks you for the chance to do so.

    —Cindy Holthaus on July 25, 2013
  • I haven’t tried the Bargello yet but it’s on my must try list. I have been amazed with them since I first saw them probably a year or so ago when I started quilting. Thanks for the chance to win the book and fabric collection!

    —Rhonda on July 25, 2013
  • I have never made a Bargello quilt but I absolutely love them. It has been a dream of mine to make one for several years. Maybe with this book and the Tonga fabric I could accomplish my dream.

    —Marilyn on July 25, 2013
  • I have not made a Bargello quilt but it is on my list. I love how it moves and gives it personality.

    —Marilyn R on July 25, 2013
  • I love the look of Bargello. I have not tried it yet, but I really want to. My BFF made me a small one for my wall. I figure if she can do it, so can I.

    —Penny on July 25, 2013
  • I not tried bargello yet but it has been on my List for a couple of years. I like the idea of trying a smaller quilt first to get the technique down. Awesome!

    —Robin on July 25, 2013
  • I made my first and only Bargello quilt for my wonderful mother. Mom loved all things purple, so I made a twin bed sized heart of all purples, lilacs, lavenders and pinks. She kepthad it on her bed till the day she passed away, 3 years ago. My sisters insisted I take it back. I think of her all the time, but especially when I’m cozied up under her quilt reading a book, just like she used to do.

    —Eileen Rivera on July 25, 2013
  • I made one out of Eleanor Burns’ "Trip Around the World" book a few years back for my mom. She absolutely adores it! I think it’s time I made another! 🙂

    —Tonya Albers on July 25, 2013
  • I just saw this a "Bargello" quilt pattern for the first time a week ago or so and said, oh I wish someone could teach me how to make one! So yes, I would love to win the fabric & book!!!!

    —Cindy S. on July 25, 2013
  • Bargello quilts are most fascinating. I started doing a small one and became addicted. It totally amazes me how cutting strips and resewing them can create such a fascinating twist. Haven’t done any really complicating styles but most anxious to try.

    —virginia phelan on July 25, 2013
  • I made my first and only Bargello quilt for my wonderful mother. Mom loved all things purple, so I made a twin bed sized heart of all purples, lilacs, lavenders and pinks. She love to curl up with the quilt and a cup of coffee and read. She kept it on her bed till the day she passed away, 3 years ago. My sisters insisted I take it back. I think of her all the time, but especially when I’m cozied up under her quilt reading a book, just like she used to do.

    —Eileen Rivera on July 25, 2013
  • I could surely dig making a Bargello quilt out of these beautiful fabrics.

    —Mary Saxon on July 25, 2013
  • I’ve wanted to do a Bargello quilt, but I’m a little intimidated – it just can’t be as easy as you say it is. One day soon I’ll dive in.

    —Lilly Saucier on July 25, 2013
  • I’ve always wanted to make a Bargello quilt and winning this prize would be the perfect reason to start!

    —Terri E on July 25, 2013
  • I love bargello quilts. They look so complicated, but they’re very doable. It is beautiful to see the colourful combinations. Very inspired to make another one (or two!)

    —Marion on July 25, 2013
  • I made a bargello table runner for July 4th, it turned out beautiful. Would love to make a few more for different holidays.

    Kathy on July 25, 2013
  • This quilt is on my bucket list so I am in need of your book and fabric. So pretty.

    —diane i on July 25, 2013
  • My daughter is working on Surf Song from the first book. I would love to do the cover quilt on this book.

    Christine on July 25, 2013
  • I have made a quilted Bargello vest, and loved it! These quilts are truly inspirational!

    —Carol on July 25, 2013
  • Eileen’s Bargello patterns are absolutely stunning. Definitely on my quilter’s bucket list.

    —Janet-Lee on July 25, 2013
  • I have never made a Bargello quilt before. They are beautiful. I love the black and white quilt.

    —Kerrie McNerlin on July 25, 2013
  • Have never tried a bargello quilt…my DD would even love to learn with this great collection. They are just her "colors" and this would be perfect for a dorm!

    TRACY on July 25, 2013
  • I am a quilter in training still. I have looked at Bargello and thought perhaps it was too difficult for me until now. I am ready to jump in and give it a try This looks like the perfect instruction to do so.

    —Linda Carter on July 25, 2013
  • I took a class years ago on what I think was a Bargello quilt class. Got all the squares cut and strips almost all sewn together. Brought it home and it has sat in a drawer just waiting to be completed. Hope I still remember what I’m supposed to do to complete the quilt.

    —Janelle Bucher on July 25, 2013
  • I’ve tried more times than I want to admit to layout a color scheme for a Bargello, only to overwhelm myself and return the fabrics to their place on the shelf and back to the bottom of the "want to do" list Bargello goes. Well, guess what? It is back at the top of the list soon as I finish the queen size double wedding ring quilt from that list. If I would win this book and fabric, I’d be ready to no longer see Bargello on the "want to do" list and gladly move it to the "did it and glad I did" list.

    —Paula on July 25, 2013
  • I have a bargello quilt on my "1,000 quilts to make before I die!" list.

    —angela on July 25, 2013
  • What beautiful fabric, I’ve always wanted to try a bargello quilt.

    Vickie on July 25, 2013
  • Not yet…but I hope to some day!

    —Sue on July 25, 2013
  • These are awesome! I did bargello in a tapestry years ago. How fantastic it would be to have those beautiful coordinated batics to create the waves of bargello in piecing! It would look incredible on my wall!! And it would sure impress my spouse!

    —debi crocker on July 25, 2013
  • The colors of the fabrics in the shown package are so exciting, just want to touch them !.
    And eventhough I have not made a Bargello Patterned quilt to this date the idea of starting one is making me look at lots of patterns. I would dearly love to win the book and fabric

    Charleen Korethoski on July 25, 2013
  • I have a christmas bargello kit and a book but I’ve been petrified to start. I even had a friend try to talk me thru the kit pattern but it seemed too complicated so I didn’t do it for a runner exchange. After reading the authors explaination I believe I could give this project a whirl. I understand how the joining is done and about the "slashing", I didn’t get that whole concept before. I really want to make a bargello as I find them so colorful and full of movement.

    —Jami Price on July 25, 2013
  • I saw the pattern for Chris Timmins’ "Twisted Bargello" in a magazine. I had not seen it in any of the quilt shops in my area. I ordered it online from a shop in Florida, about as far away from my home as you can get and still be in North America. I got the pattern, was thrilled with it and began collecting fabrics to make it. A few weeks later our local quilt shop owner, who is Australian like Chris Timmins told us she was going to offer a class in Twisted Bargello because she had just got patterns from Australia. If only I had waited, I could have bought the pattern from her. I took the class and have a beautiful quilt hanging on my wall. It was so much fun I would love to do another one.

    —Barb B on July 25, 2013
  • I made a Bargello quilt many many years ago and can’t believe how these quilts look. I would love to branch out and make one of these beauties.

    —Carline Anthony on July 25, 2013
  • I made a large bargello baby quilt about 22 years ago. It was very simple, I haven’t been brave enough to try a large complex one. Thanks

    —Valerie A. Clark on July 25, 2013
  • The first bargello quilt I made was a purple heart lap quilt for my dear husband. I have made some smaller pieces as table runners and wall hangings. We (hubby and I) have collected yellow and black fabrics for a quilt from her first ‘Twist N Turn Bargello’ book. I also have batiks in greens and purples for another quilt. We both love the look and feel of bargello. They are mesmerizing to look at. (Oh, and the entire back of a jacket I made is bargello)

    —Cindy on July 25, 2013
  • A bargello got on my list about 8 years ago, but I never have bought all the colors I’d want. This giveaway set sure would look great in my blue bedroom!

    —Wendy Barker Paull on July 25, 2013
  • I made a Bargello quilt many, many years ago which doesn’t come close to looking as beautiful as the Bargello quilts Eileen has drafted and made. It is my intention to make one of Eileen’s designs in the near future. Thanks for a chance to win this book and fabric pack.

    —Nadia on July 25, 2013
  • I have made a small bargello quilt and a miniature bargello so far. I would love to do a bigger one with a twist and turn.

    —Saskia on July 25, 2013
  • Absolutely beautiful quilts. Will definitely try the techniques in the book. A quilty friend of mine recently made a kingsize for her son. what a treat!

    —Rivka Hamdaniן on July 25, 2013
  • I haven’t made one yet as there always seemed to be patterns that seemed more exciting. However, there’s several here that really excite me, namely Argyle, Island Sunrise and Love Song. I’m adding them to my queue and I really hope I win, thanks for the chance!

    —Susan on July 25, 2013
  • the Argyle quilt really appeals to me, looks very different from the 1 bargello quilt I have made, but I have another on the go, so I obviously like to make this type of quilt, so much fabric and patterns, so little time!

    —Colleen Lawrence on July 25, 2013
  • I love Bargello quilts. It’s all about the color choices. The green is awesome. I will get this book for sure.

    —Chris on July 25, 2013
  • I’ve always admired Bargello quilts and have wanted to make one (and who could resist one of the ones from this book?). With no classes available in my area, I can’t quite "see" how the patterns come into being, but would absolutely love to try to make one with the help of this book and the gorgeous fabrics!

    —JillB on July 25, 2013
  • I am currently making the Aurora Borealis and increasing the size for a king bed. A friend asked me to choose any pattern and colors and make something for her. I have chosen greens, purples, and blues. It is beautiful. The backing will be Peacocks and Butterflies (Timeless Treasures). I would love to make another one for myself. I am loving the challenge of making all the small squares to match.

    —Doris A on July 25, 2013
  • I’d love to win the More Twists and Turns bargello quilts book. I haven’t sewn any bargello quilts–don’t have any patterns–but did a needlepoint pillow in college many years ago. I love the movement and the beautiful look. Tonga’s Sea Glass fabrics would be great!

    —Janet Sabol on July 25, 2013
  • I’d like to try a Bargello quilt, but they looked so complicated. With this book, I think I could do it.

    —Elizabeth P. on July 25, 2013
  • Love Bargello quilts; however, they’ve looked way too difficult to tackle. Eileen’s method of strip piecing looks wonderful and I’d like to try piecing one. I’ve now included a Bargello quilt on my bucket list. Thanks for sharing and sponsoring the great giveaways!

    —Janet on July 25, 2013
  • Never made a Bargello quilt but they look beautiful. Always ready to try something new.

    —Kathy on July 25, 2013
  • I saw my first bargello quilt at a show in the 80’s. These are awesome!

    Amy Eileen Koester on July 25, 2013
  • I made a heart shaped floral bargello quilt in 2003, which my 92 year old mom still uses. It was my Christmas gift to her that year. Once I discovered batiks, I fell in love with them, making most of my quilts from them. They are great to work with, and the saturated colors give an awesome look to any quilt project!

    Lois Sonntag on July 25, 2013
  • I have yet to make a Bargello quilt but they have always fascinated me. I love the one on the cover. If I win, I will do the green cover quilt, as I am recently retired and looking for a project to sink my teeth in. Thanks!

    —Meg Cupman on July 25, 2013
  • I have always wanted to make a Bargello quilt. I just love the pics.

    —TINA LEIGH on July 25, 2013
  • A bargello quilt has been on my need to try list for about three years now. This book looks like it explains the process well enough that even someone with only a high beginner ability might be able to give it a try with fairly good results. I would be thrilled to win and work on one this fall.

    —karin wheeler on July 25, 2013
  • I love Bargellos. The third quilt I made was hand cut, hand sewn, hand quilted bargello in reds & golds.

    —Aimee Marie on July 25, 2013
  • I have a bargello pattern that I have been wanting to try, but just haven’t been confident about picking out material, so winning this giveaway would be quite awesome. Thanks for the giveaway.

    —Janet Pierce on July 25, 2013
  • A bargello quilt has been on my to do list since I first saw them.. It was love at first sight…

    —Bonnie on July 25, 2013
  • I have always wanted to make a bargello quilt. Would love to win the fabric and the book. The book sounds like it would take the intimidation right out of making a bargello quilt.

    —debbie yates on July 25, 2013
  • Oh gosh, what beautiful quilts! A Bargello qut has been on my "one day I will" list for a few years. This method looks like all the hard work has been taken care of. I’d love to make one and move it from the list where it is, to my "have to make it NEXT" list, hehe. I’m drooling over the beautiful Tonga Treats!

    Thank you and Timeless Treasures for a super giveaway and a chance to win.

  • I am almost finished with my first bargello quilt. At first I was beginning to think I would never get the colors right, and as it turned out, I was right! After a lot of ripping and sewing and ripping and sewing I FINALLY got it right. I think my next attempt will be a smaller version without so many twists and turns. I used Derek Lockwood’s "Links" pattern.

    —Roberta Kennedy on July 25, 2013
  • I would love to win this giveaway to try for the first time to make a bargello quilt. Your quilts are nothing short of amazing.I only hope when I tr to do one it turns out as beautiful as yours are.

    —Donna McGraw on July 26, 2013
  • I never completed my bargello quilt and wished I had. I am due to exhibit in an exhibition with the theme ‘Water’ and I think I will use the bargello quilt method to simulate water and waves. Thanks for the reminder of such a fantastic quilt project.

    —Lorraine on July 26, 2013
  • I never completed my bargello quilt but wished I had. I am to exhibit in an exhibition with the theme ‘Water’ and the bargello quilt method would be fantastic to simulate water and waves. Thank you for a reminder of such a brilliant quilting pattern.

  • I’ve always been fascinated by these quilts. Making one is on my "someday" quilt list. Thanks for the inspiration!

  • Island Sunrise makes me want to run right out to the beach to watch the sun rise and then come home and start selecting fabrics for this beautiful quilt.

    —Donna Thompson on July 26, 2013
  • I was doubting my ability to do quilts for long time – and then in January this year I joined beginner’s course – and after second class I was already producing extra bits; my first queen size top is ready now, as well as the elements for my lap quilt..now, I am gathering fabric for my first Bargello that will be for my husband. Why?I did small ‘trip around the world’ cushion for the friend and I like the technique that gives such a great result. My husband use to tell me that it is silly to take perfectly fine fabric and chop it up only to stitch it back together (I like to compare it to preparing the meal – result is so much better than the individual parts). But once I showed him pictures of Bargellos he was speechless – and then admitted that they really are fabric art!!

    —ljiljana on July 26, 2013
  • I’ve always thought Bargello fascinating, but never attempted it, either in quilting or needlework. The pillowcases are such a beautiful and clever idea, and a nice project for breaking in a new technique. Just one of many great inspirations from your site. Thanks!

    —KittenWithAWhiplash on July 26, 2013
  • I did a Bargello years ago and loved the looks then but now they are even more beautiful and I can’t wait to get the More Twist and Turn Bargello book and try and it again.It will be first on my list.

    —Linda Yannikos on July 26, 2013
  • I have always wanted to try a bargello quilt, but they look so difficult that I have not been confident enough to try. However, this book seems to make a great result achievable and I feel inspired, particularly when I see the fabulous fabric giveaway and can imagine the pleasure that working with these would bring!

    —Jo on July 26, 2013
  • I’ve never made a bargello quilt but would love to try. What a great fabric bundle and book to get started with!

    —Ann Desjardines on July 26, 2013
  • I have always admired bargello quilting and have searched several books but have not dared to try one yet.They are beautiful and look very complicated. I work full time and struggle at times to fit quilting time into my daily life, so I am looking for a pattern that can be started and stopped easily without loosing my place or pattern set. I would love to find a book that is easy to follow with several smaller projects to start with. This book sounds like what I’m looking for to try my first bargello quilt. Thank you

    —Mary Weese on July 26, 2013
  • Oh my goodness they’re beautiful. I’m fairly new to quilting (just started in November 2012) and I’m already 100% addicted. It is my passion and I’m so fortunate to have found it so early in life! I’ve never come across Bargello and I LOVE it, it’s now on my very long to do list!

    Alyx @ Hoppi Quilts on July 26, 2013

    —Lin stricker on July 26, 2013
  • I must be one of very few quilters that have never actually used batik fabrics…..initially I didn’t really like them but have learned more about them in the last 12 months & have grown to love their beautiful designs. I am not good at coordinating colours, usually choosing theme fabrics, I would love to make a bargello from these gorgeous gems.

    —Lynn Wakeham on July 26, 2013
  • I would love to make one of these..but I’ve always been kind of intimated by it.

    —Michele on July 26, 2013
  • All are beautiful. It is hard to choose the one I like best but the cool colors of the
    Alaska quilt look great right now

    —debra on July 26, 2013
  • I made one small bargello as a sample. I would love to make a full sized bed quilt with this method.

    —Ann on July 26, 2013
  • This method is fabulous! It is on my bucket list. The book sounds great and the fabrics are gorgeous. I can’t wait to see what I can make.

    —karen fisher on July 26, 2013
  • My Bargello wall hanging started at a Quilt Retreat. I had the strips made, part of them being shiny satin fabric, and starting cutting and arranging them on a wall until I liked what I saw. When I got done, it looked like Northern Lights so, being a fan of Robert Service, the poet who wrote about Alaska, I stitched some lines from "The Cremation of Sam Magee" around the edge and embroidered a little cabin with smoke coming out the chimney at the bottom. I love it!

    —Betty Santa on July 26, 2013
  • I have been collecting material to make a Bargello Quilt and looking at Eileen’s book has re-enspired me to try the baby quilts for my Daughter who has just had twin girls last week. they would be beautiful on her cots.

    —Joy Clark on July 26, 2013
  • I saw a single heart bargello quilt at an Amish farmhouse quilt shop in Pennsylvania last year. I have looked for a heart bargello pattern since then. I was thrilled to find a double heart bargello quilt hanging at a quilt shop last week near Woodstock, ON. I purchased the pattern as well as some fabrics to start the project. I can hardly wait to get started.

    —Debbie on July 26, 2013
  • I would love to try a Bargello quilt sometime.

    —Sheryl Miller on July 26, 2013
  • I have never made a bargello quilt, but now you really teased me with those gorgeous fabrics! The colours are very calming. Crossing my fingers in this giveaway!

    —Malin Täubert on July 26, 2013
  • I keep looking at Bargello quilts. They look so complicated. And picking out the fabrics when there’s so much to choose from makes it challenging. This is on my list of quilts to do.

    —CarolE on July 26, 2013
  • i made a bargello quilt in a class where we worked in partners….one sewed while the other paired fabrics to be sewn and pressed. then we switched. you can get three times as much work in the same time. it was fun, and the quilt worked up quickly that way!!

  • Love Bargello quilts, but have never made one. I’ve no idea about how to make them and to pick out the colors has always looked very challenging. I would love to make one and I believe the the book by Eileen Wright and the fabric you are giving away would provide the inspiration, jump start and know how to finally make one. Thank you so much for considering me for a chance to win the give away. It is very kind of you to give the opportunity for growth to those of us who desire to continue to learn new skills. Again thanks so much.

    —Pam on July 26, 2013
  • I made a Bargello twin quilt when my son went to college…I was a beginner quilter..following the directions, I have to say it went together easily. I haven’t made one since…the patterns in the book are beautiful, I am ready to make another with the beautiful fabrics in this give away. Thanks for the opportunity!

    —Sue K on July 26, 2013
  • I’m excited and encouraged to try bargello. I was one who thot it was too difficult for me. The author’s simplification explanation is just what I need to try it. I’ll put it in line!!! And the Tonga Treat fabric looks like it would make a beauty. Thanks.

    —Barb Peters on July 26, 2013
  • I bought a pattern for a bargello christmas tree from a shop I visited during a shop hop. I bought some of the background fabrics from other shops during the hop, gathered my Christmas greens from my stash and have everything in a project bag. there it sat. A few years later a friend of mine was giving a class using jelly rolls. I love that I used batiks even though my friend said they weren’t the best choice for bargello quilts. After reading this e-mail and seeing pictures from the book, I am newly inspired and will get out my Christmas tree project. I think I may use it as my "tree" this Christmas!

    —Sandy Rodgers on July 26, 2013
  • I LOVE Bargello quilts. Although I made several a few years ago, the fabulous excerpts from Eileen’s book have me already running to my stash to pull together some stunning "runs" of colour. Thanks for publicizing this exciting resource!

    —Elizabeth King on July 26, 2013
  • I have always been intrigued by Bargello quilts and would like to make one someday. Thanks for the giveaway!

    —Diane on July 26, 2013
  • My daughter and I made a bargello quilt about twenty years ago, but that was just "baby steps" compared to these spectacular quilts. I am overwhelmed with Eileen Wright’s designs and would love to make an updated version using her inspiration. Just imagine one in those gorgeous batiks. I think I’m going modern!

    —Mary Lou on July 26, 2013
  • I’ve made several bargello quilts and I love them. I prefer strip piecing to making individual blocks and I love to use lots of colors!

    Nancy on July 26, 2013
  • Back in 1995 my mom wanted me to make her a quilt. She chose a Bargello pattern and needed it to be a king size. I had only been quilting for about 4 years when I took on the project but I got it completed and she still uses it to this day.

    —Karen Smithson on July 26, 2013
  • I have been enjoying quilting with my teachers/mentors of quilting for about 20 years and would love to try this as a challenge for me. The results are so amazing and of course beautiful.

    —Glennis Vetter on July 26, 2013
  • These are beautiful quilts. If I don’t win the book, I am going to buy it.

    —Anita Langford on July 26, 2013
  • I remember the first time I set eyes on a Bargello Quilt and it was love at first sight. I felt intimidated when I read how to make it and I asked one of my co-workers, who has since retired – she is such a quilt enthusiast, and she helped me with the project. As I was making the piece, my husband, who is now deceased, loved it and asked if I could make it a pillow for him. So that is what I did, instead of making a Bargello Quilt, I make a Bargello Pillow. Everyone that comes to my home asks if they can take it home with them because the colors are so vibrant and they love how it reminds of so many things. Everytime I look at the pillow it reminds me love – the love I have for Him and the love I have for Bargello!

    —JoAnn Parker on July 26, 2013
  • I love bargello quilts and have wanted to make one for years and years. They look difficult. Also I have never worked with batiks and work love to win the fabric and book. Thank you for making such beautiful quilts and showing them on the website for all of of us to see.

    —Ida Brandon on July 26, 2013
  • I think these kinds of quilts are beautiful. I have been interested in trying to make one myself but it seemed to hard to make. After reading what is contained in this book I might just be able to concur doing one of these.

    —Sandra Kanz-Metz on July 26, 2013
  • I have yet to try a bargello quilt, but the baby quilts look pretty do-able, I would love to win this and try it!

    —Jacklynn Grimm on July 26, 2013
  • I have never made a bargello quilt. It’s always seemed so intimidating. I did start a needlepoint bargello pillow about 40 years ago and made a mess of it. I finally gave it to my sister who somehow saved it. I would love to make one of these quilts, I think I’m finally ready!

    —Nancy McFall on July 26, 2013
  • On my bucket list for many years. Now in progress-surprisingly simple with amazing results. Don’t wait-do it now-you won’t be sorry!

    —Minnette on July 26, 2013
  • My daughter’s first quilt was a bargello quilt. She entered it as a 4-H project in the local county fair, winning a first place and special award for her efforts!

    —Kathy Rankin on July 26, 2013
  • I have made a few bargello quilts but now as beautiful as those featured in this book. I look forward to trying this technique.

    —Jan on July 26, 2013
  • I have never made this kind of quilt, but they look amazing. I would welcome the challenge! Thanks for the chance to win.

    —Linda V on July 26, 2013
  • I’ve been taking notice of Bargello quilts for a few months. They are fascinating but also intimidating. I need guidance to start this project.

    —Rosalind Gutierrez on July 26, 2013
  • I haven’t done a Bargello quilt, but have done Bargello needlepoint. The quilts look stunning, and it would be easy to decorate a lovely room around the colour way in a Bargello quilt.

    Gail G on July 26, 2013
  • I’ve wanted to try a bargello quilt for quite a while. I love those batiks! Thanks for the opportunity to win!

    —Sandy N on July 26, 2013
  • I have always admire this type of quilting, never thought I could create one. They seem so complex. This would be a new learning experience for me.

    kbo on July 26, 2013
  • Would love to make a wave bargello. Just love the movement

    —Judy on July 26, 2013
  • I’ve had a bargello quilt on my list since I started quilting last year. Maybe someday I’ll get to it. I love the music themed one. 🙂

    —Carla G on July 26, 2013
  • I have always thought of making a bargello quilt and didn’t think it was so simple to make. After seeing these beautiful quilts I am going to start digging in my stash and pulling fabrics together to start the top. Thank you for the inspiration and nudge to get this project started!

    —Sue Fender on July 26, 2013
  • Sea glass batiks are beautiful.

    —Marlene Vossen on July 26, 2013
  • It is on my to do list…

    Denise Bevard on July 26, 2013
  • I have loved the look of bargello quilts even before I began quilting.
    But, the idea of making one scares me to death!! Am I up to the task, am I good enough?? All those wonderful colors blending in so beautifully keeps drawing me. Who knows, maybe I’ll find the courage one day…

    —Carol Gearey on July 26, 2013
  • I have made many trip around the world quilts and have always been tempted to change it up and try bargello. This book will inspire me.

    —Aletha on July 26, 2013
  • In 25 years of quilting, I have yet to make a bargello quilt although I do love the look of them.

    —Pat Roediger on July 26, 2013
  • Bargello quilts are something I have been leary of trying. I have read the instructions and that is as far as I got. This from a person who went from simple nine patch to card trick and drunkards path. No log cabins for over 30 years of quilt projects. I want to do a Bargello quilt and love the designs shown here and would love to do at least ONE bargello quilt in my lifetime. Thank you for showing some alternative designs.

    —Sandy H on July 26, 2013
  • I have never made a bargello quilt, but would love to try. Thanks for the chance to win.

    —Beth B on July 26, 2013
  • I’ve loved bargello since the moment I saw them, but I was sure I’d never be able to manage them, now that I have a "few" years of quilting under belt, like the little train that could, I think I can! They always make me think of the 1960’s… seriously, don’t they have kind of a psychedelic vibe? How fun is that? LOL

    —Sherryl on July 26, 2013
  • Bargello is beautiful – and this fabric is beautiful too!

    —Kathy W on July 26, 2013
  • have never made a bargello quilt but would like to try. I love the black and white one shown- think it could make a great quilt!

    shirley tener on July 26, 2013
  • I have never made a bargello quilt because they look so complicated!

    —Brenda hulsey on July 26, 2013
  • I have never attempted a bargello but I think I could manage to make a baby size quilt for my new great granddaughter. I love batiks and they certainly would be gorgeous in a bargello quilt.

    —Joan H on July 26, 2013
  • I was struck by the beauty of Bargello quilts since I first saw them. I would love to win such beautiful fabric to try one. Thanks for offering this opportunity to all of us.

    —Karen on July 26, 2013
  • About 20 years ago we took our young family back to St.Louis to visit my husbands brother. We took a detour through an Amish town where I stopped into a small country store. This unique store was owned by two spinsters who had been given permission to run a store. There I fell in love with the Bargello design. I should have bought the quilt top then and there, I didn’t. I came home empty handed. My mother in law noticed my disappointment, the very next Christmas she made me a beautiful Bargello. It still remains on my bed even though my husband and mother in law are both gone. I would like to make one on my own one day.

    —Kathy Westover on July 26, 2013
  • I’ve always been fascinated with bargello quilts, but have never made one.

    —jane d on July 26, 2013
  • I’ve not made a bargello quilt yet because I haven’t really seen designs that appealed enough. Until now, that is. These designs are awesome! I’m already mentally going through my stash, picking colours and fabric for Love Song and Argyle. Great giveawy and thanks for the chance to win it.

    —susan on July 26, 2013
  • I have not made, but would very much enjoy learning a new quilting technique. Making a Bargello quilt has defninitley been on my "to do" list. I love the movement a Bargello quilt displays and the color variations are beautiful. I am constantly looking for new adventures in quilting!

    —Bonnie Dick on July 26, 2013
  • Beautiful – perhaps one day I too can make something like this with helpful instructions found in this exciting book.

    —Sharon Fisher on July 26, 2013
  • I’ve wanted to make a bargello quilt since 2005 when I began quilting. A pattern was published in a quilting magazine made with black and white and turquoise fabrics with a musical theme. I even know who I plan to make the quilt for – a dear friend who loves all kinds of music. I cut out the pattern and it is still in my to do list

    —Debby Thompson on July 26, 2013
  • Have never made a Bargello quilt but would love to try if I won the fabric giveaway.

    —Bonnie Emmons on July 26, 2013

    —Martha-Ann on July 26, 2013
  • I have never made a bargello quilt, but would like to try. I love the sea glass collection.

    —Jill Hicks on July 26, 2013
  • I would love to try a twisted bargello – Eileen’s new designs are delightful! I particularly love the idea of a bed runner… and with the Tonga fabric, a stunning combination! Thank you!

    —Janet on July 26, 2013
  • These are some of the most awesome patterns that I have ever seen. Would love to make one for my daughter and sil. Thank you for sharing your wonderful patterns

    —Stephanie F on July 26, 2013
  • I LOVE glacier bay. Might have to try one of these!

    —1Aquagirl on July 26, 2013
  • I made a small bargello and had so much fun that I decided to make a large king size one! I chose all my oriental and batik fabric for one that I saw in a quilt magazine. I got them all in order and sewed my strip sets then followed the instructions in cutting the strip sets the different widths. But when I went to put them together to my surprise NO directions on that. I contacted the magazine and "NOPE NO DIRECTIONS" so I just taped up the picture of the quilt on the bed and started in!!!!!!!!! To my amazement I did a really good job of dupicating the pattern!!!!! I’m ready for another one, maybe a little more challenging!

    —SHARON on July 26, 2013
  • I have never made a bargello quilt, although I have seen them and thought, "Wow, that looks so pretty but difficult". I always wondered how they did it,and now I know. I think it would be fun to try and see what I could come up with. Thank you.

    —Honey D. on July 26, 2013
  • This is on my wishlist. The Tonga fabric is stunning and Eileen’s designs would work beautifully with it. Thank you!

    —GrrannyH on July 26, 2013
  • saw a bargello quilt in Williamsburg va the first year I was quilting and loved it…now 15 years later I am still planning to make one.

    —barbara on July 26, 2013
  • I made the cover quilt, in a different colorway, from the first book Twist and Turn Bargello. It was the first one for me and I enjoyed it a lot. The directions were great and was a big hit. I want to do another one in queen size for my bed. Thanks.

    —BJ on July 26, 2013
  • I remember doing a bargello table topper for Christmas about 15 years ago, when I first started quilting. It was a very simple, straight-forward bargello; and I still use it during the holidays. I started a more complex bargello about 4 years ago, but I have to confess that it has become a UFO — unfortunately, I’ve been stymied about how to finish it. Would sure enjoy this book; and it could be the "jump-start" I need to elevate that UFO to the finished and in-use grouping — my husband would really like that to happen as he especially liked this bargello! 🙂

    —Jayne on July 26, 2013
  • I’ve never made a bargello quilt before but it is on my long list of "want to make" projects! The quits pictured here are gorgeous!

    —Pam on July 26, 2013
  • Bargello quilts have been a desire since long before I attempted quilting. I love the movement, the flow and ebb of them. I have made several small bargello like items, including a throw pillow and even a border for a child’s quilt. But….to know how to really do it, being taught by an admired expert, that would be the very best of all my quilting worlds.

    Thanx for the opportunity.

    —Pauline M Moll on July 26, 2013
  • I used to live next door to Eileen in Nanaimo. I love her bargello quilt patterns. I have her first book and would love to win this book, as I am one of the people to ask for smaller size bargello quilts. Eileen picked out the fabrics in black & white and I made a regular bargello quilt; but I have now moved to Kelowna and have been timid about making one without my mentor near by. I really like the Wind Song in the Black & White and it looks more like the size I would like to make for a wall hanging. Thanks for a chance to win the book and Tonga Treats. I am going to Vancouver Island next month and will be seeing Eileen again, it is over a year. Irene B.

    —Irene Boucher on July 26, 2013
  • I have not made one but long admired them…perhaps it’s time to put it a the top of my list.

    —Barbara Ostrander on July 26, 2013
  • My to do list includes a Bargello quilt. I find them so beautiful and thus a little intimidating. I’d love to try the Baby Bargello, they look like a perfect gift for a new babe.

    —Mary Power-Burke on July 26, 2013
  • I have never made a Bargello but have always thought they were beautiful. I would like to attempt one in my lifetime and having the right fabrics would get me started.

    —Cindy Stephenson on July 26, 2013
  • I’ve made one bargello quilt many years ago. At the time I said it would be for my youngest son, then in his late teens. It was with the stipulation that he could not have it until he married, since I hoped there would be someone around to take good care of the quilt. Well, he was in his 20s when he married and I gifted the quilt. It has received a lot of use in their household and is getting faded from many washes. Even though the colors are no longer rich as they once were, I’m very happy to see my quilt used and loved. It is nice to know I have helped to keep my son and his family warm when they nap or go to bed and I hope they feel the love that went into the quilt!

    —Shirley Fuller on July 26, 2013
  • I have always wanted to try a bargello quilt. I just love the movement and fluidity of all of the colors that go into the making of this type of quilt. The soft Tonga Treats up for grabs, is such a beautiful choice. Thanks for stoking the desire again to try to do one, and thanks for the chance at the Timeless Treasures Tonga Treats fabric.

    —Gina on July 26, 2013
  • I made a bargello quilt about 10 years ago as a gift for my husband’s boss. Since he, the boss, is Chinese I tried to choose oriental type fabrics and there weren’t a lot out there at that time. I did complete it and it seemed to be appreciated.

    —Alice on July 26, 2013
  • I’ve gone from "I could never do that" to "I think I can" after reading Eileen’s comments and looking at her beautiful quilts. The baby quilts are especially appealing as a starter project because I’m expecting a new grandchild in a few months and I like to try new techniques on baby-size quilts.

    —Susan E on July 26, 2013
  • I’ve been admiring bargello quilts for a few years and hope to make one in the next couple years. Any help in organization and execution would be most helpful!

    —Pat Seager on July 26, 2013
  • 2 years ago my youngest daughter wanted a bargello quilt made from one she saw on the net. my first attempt was so successful (a full size quilt) that my oldest daughter asked for a wall hanging of that bargello pattern. my quilt group still talks about the awesome bargellos i made. none of them is willing to make one though. i have yet to make one for myself, i’m still recovering from the 64 color 1 1/2, 2, 2 1/2, 3 and 3 1/2″ graduated squares. i have fabric left to make another one and hope to one day.

    —yvonne basarab on July 26, 2013
  • I saw my first Bargello quilt at a quilt show & fell in love. However the perceived difficulty terrified me. Knowing now that it might not be as hard as I had thought gives me courage.

    —Susan Clarkson on July 26, 2013
  • I made a bargello wall hanging which looked like an impressionist’s painting of a countryside scene with sun, trees, flowers, meadows and streams. It was my first attempt at bargello and turned out beautifully.

    —Kathleen on July 26, 2013
  • I’ve always wanted to make a Bargello quilt but did not want something large as a starter project tackling it on my own. In cleaning out a file of patterns, I came across a wall hanging that would be about 30″ square. Perfect. My color choices should have been bolder for a better contrast. Looking forward to making another one and would love to win the book and fabric to make it a reality!

    —Roz Agulnik on July 26, 2013
  • it seems hard to keep the pattern straight

    —mararetz on July 26, 2013
  • While visiting my daughter in Colorado this summer, I asked if she would ever want a Bargello quilt. She had never heard of one so I showed her some on line pix. She said she would love to have one! I offered to make her one since I have been wanting to try this style for almost two years – since a friend of mine in TX made one. Has always looked scary but from some of the remarks I have read above it may be easier with the pattern book and especially with the fabric already chosen. The colors posted would be beautiful in her bedroom. I have used Timeless Treasure material before and it is really nice fabric. She has a quilt on her bed now that I made for her from a pattern of her choice. I love making quilt items for her because of all the crafts she does, quilting is not one of them. One way or another I will do a Bargello quilt, I am just hoping you will pick me to win the book and material so I can fulfill another dream of a woman, my daughter, who is a cancer survivor and does so much for others. Thanks for listening. I didn’t mean to write a novel.

    helen young on July 26, 2013
  • A Bargello quilt has been on my bucket list for at least five years now. I love the Glacier Bay as well as the Boy and Girl quilts.Bargellos are so beautiful.The Twist and Turn book is the one I have put on my list.

    —Donna P. on July 26, 2013
  • I love the look of a bargello quilt, and I would eventually like to make one. I love the greens and oranges. Have 3 other quilts in progress right now that I have to finish before starting anything new. thanks

    —Nancy Gross on July 26, 2013
  • I have made one bargello in x-mas fabrics and am looking forward to doing another. Am anxious to see what your new book will teach. Loved the samples above.

    —Dorothy Holt on July 26, 2013
  • My first experience with bargello quilting was about 20 years ago. I took a class and we made panels of bargello in different widths and with some lamee in it. We then turned these panels into a jacket similar to the one that Eileen is wearing in her picture. I made two of the jackets then but haven’t made any more. Your quilts are beautiful.

    —Barbara on July 26, 2013

  • I made a bargello quilt some years back…..it is a wallhanging which hangs on the wall in my living room where it can be admired. Most comments from friends say something like "if you decide to give that away" or "if you ever make another one" I’d love to have it. I can appreciate both the book and the material in the offer, too. Thanks.

    —Alice Hix on July 26, 2013
  • Earlier this year I took a class at a local quilt shop and I loved both the class and my finished quilt. I have just started another one and I had no idea that there were so many beautiful variations of bargello quilt patterns. I hope to make more and I would love to branch out trying some different patterns and sizes.

    —Mary Ann on July 26, 2013

  • I am a five year quilter but have wanted to create a bargello piece since I was doing needlepoint for my children, thirty or more years ago. Now I am quilting for my grandchildren and adore the challenge of adapting ideas to my grandchildrens’ needs. My bargello quilt will be for my bed and my husband will be thrilled.

    —Loretta on July 26, 2013
  • I have always loved the intricacy of the Bargello designs, and have tried to put on paper what I have pictured in my mind… but it’s never what I envisioned! Can it really be that easy?? Really??

    —Carol J on July 26, 2013

  • I have never made a Bargello quilt, but think it would be great fun. I did some Bargello needlepoint years ago. So, this looks like it would be great fun.

    —Donna W on July 26, 2013
  • I’ve made a few bargello quilts and love the end-results. The techniques…not so much! I’m always interested in trying new ways to make these classic quilts. Thanks for the opportunity!

    —Evelyn on July 26, 2013
  • Love the movement of bargello quilts

    —Angela Weithman on July 26, 2013
  • I have always wanted to make a Bargello quilt but they seem so daunting! It sounds as though this book would give me a good start.

    Linny on July 26, 2013
  • I have been making Bargello quilts for about 10 years and they are my favorite style of quilt to make. The very first time I made one I did not understand the instructions so I cut out every piece individually and then sewed it together.

    —Marcia on July 26, 2013
  • The fabric is awesome! And I’d love to learn how to make a bargello quilt! Thanks for the chance to win this bundle of beautiful fabric.

    —melodie paul on July 26, 2013
  • Love the Sea Glass collection and the pattern on the cover in green. I have never made a Bargello Quilt , this one looks like fun.

    —Ginny McPhee on July 26, 2013
  • I have not made one, but like the idea of making a masculine one. I have an adult son who would be the perfect candidate for such a quilt! He loves subtle color as well as ‘simple’ and timeless designs.

    —Therese on July 26, 2013
  • Beautiful, beautiful quilts. I would love to learn how to make one and this would certainly get me their. Thank you for the give-away opportunity.

    —Sandra Chavez on July 26, 2013
  • I am new to quilt making and this book looks inspiring!! I like to dabble in painting and this style of quilting reminds me of abstract paintings..just beautiful. I want to try to make a Bargello quilt and this books looks awesome 🙂

    —Tamara D on July 26, 2013
  • Cuando comencé a realizar patch pensé que nunca podría hacer un bargello, me parecía una técnica muy difícil y en mis comienzos tampoco tenía gran variedad de telas. Al tiempo realicé el primero y quedé maravillada. Siempre quise repetir la experiencia y poder hacer un diseño mucho más complicado y con más variedad de telas. Este libro me ha fascinado y tiene una variedad de diseños increíbles. Bargello… allá vamos….!!!!!!!!!! (Translation: I thought I could never do a bargello quilt, it seemed like a very difficult technique and neither had my early variety of fabrics. When I did it the first time I was amazed. I always wanted to repeat the experience and to make a much more complicated quilts and with more variety of fabrics. This book fascinates me and has a variety of amazing designs. Bargello … here we go ….!!!!)

    silvia payer on July 26, 2013
  • I fell in love with bargello quilts a long, long time ago. To be able to make even one would be an honor and I think I would like to make mine in oranges, reds, yellows and blues. Every different colour of the colours I’ve mentioned here. Made in these colours, I feel very strongly that my bargello quilt would be stunning and a showpiece to boot.

    —Lynda on July 26, 2013
  • What beautiful Bargello quilts! I have always admired Bargello quilts, but I have never made one. This book and fabric would really give me the incentive to start one.

    —Bonnie on July 26, 2013
  • This book looks great. Haven’t tried this method of quilting but am in awe of the results. I’m thinking this book would be a great place to start. Thanks for sharing.

    Shari Jamieson on July 26, 2013
  • SOOO love making bargellos so I NEED this Timeless Treasures Fabrics to whip up another beautiful bargello!!! Blues and greens are my FAVORITE color way–the fact these are soft pastels will be an excellent challenge for me since I always do BRIGHT quilts…can’t wait to play with the subtle color changes to see what pattern they create!!

    —Leslei Fisher on July 26, 2013
  • I LOVE this, they are beautiful and so unique. Have started quilting and would love to win this collection, already have ideas bouncing around in my head LOL just like most of us. Thanks for the chance to win

    —Linda Barnes on July 26, 2013
  • As a longarmer, one of my quilters has brought several of these for quilting. I love all her beautiful fabric choices and would love to make one of my own. Making a smaller one just might be manageable. I would love to win. Thanks for the opportunity.

    —Deanna on July 26, 2013
  • A beautifull quilt like any of these would definitely be the most difficult I have attempted!

    —Cathey S on July 26, 2013
  • Wow! these quilts look gorgeous….would love to try my hand at making a bargello quilt. Thanks for the chance to win the book and fabric.

    —Connie on July 26, 2013
  • I have not tried my hand at Bargello but definitely plan on it in the near future!

    —Kim Vaughan on July 26, 2013
  • I’ve dreamed about making a bargello quilt, but have never tried. After viewing these awesome pictures, it’s on my bucket list!

    —Keri Lyn on July 26, 2013
  • I have never made a Bargello quilt, but I have just returned from a trip to Alaska and I am inspired and can see some of my photos translated into a Bargello quilt.

    —Bridget on July 26, 2013
  • Bargello quilts are always interesting. You can make them again and again and they are never the same! I would love to make one for my daughter and son in law.

    —Barb on July 26, 2013
  • I did a tutorial once to make a jacket and the teacher was hopeless as was the pattern she gave us, I finished up butchering the whole thing the giving it away.I would love to try again . Its on my bucket list.

    Jean Burton on July 26, 2013
  • I was first introduced to Bargello Quilts during a show and tell at a club meeting four years ago; it was a waving flag design. After searching for the pattern, I was intrigued by the wide variety of designs that can be created when working with this quilting technique. Now to settle on a project, gather material, and let the creativity begin!

    —Deb on July 26, 2013
  • I’ve only made a small flag bargello. I do want to make a big one.

    Carla Finley on July 26, 2013
  • I would love to make a bargello, I really like Glacier Bay. I would like to make it in batiks.

    —Christine Atwell on July 26, 2013
  • A bargello quilt has been on my to-do list for too many years. Picking 20 fabrics is intimidating, but winning that fabric pack would definitely get me started on one!

    —Mary Ann on July 26, 2013
  • The Bargello process of quilting is really my favorite.I have done jackets, purses, a South African themed quilt for my brother and an American flag pattern, although a challenge, remains one that is very special to me. Eileen’s patterns in her latest book have my creative juices flowing, once again.

    —Barbara Delphos on July 26, 2013
  • Bardello quilts are beautiful, but haven’t tried one yet.Would love to win one. Thanks Dot

    —Dot on July 26, 2013
  • I have made bargello quilts- 10 in one year for my family member. They have come to expect the handmade over the top gift -quilts I make. As have most of my friends & coworkers-

    maggierose copple on July 26, 2013
  • Absolutely gorgeous! Very inspiring. Thank you for the chance to win the book & materials.

    —Cindy Boo on July 26, 2013
  • Oh I really, really want to win. The one time I tried to do a Bargello it looked pitiful. Maybe because of my color choices I don’t know. I was frustrated and never finished it-so it became a UFO. The Bargello is beautiful and I always stand in amazement that strips can make some of the most beautiful designs. I have my fingers, toes, arms and legs crossed.

    —Cathy W on July 26, 2013
  • I have admired bargello quilts, but never thought I could make one. They looked very intimidating. Perhaps this book would give me the tips that I need to move ahead with one.

    —Pearl on July 26, 2013
  • I love these quilts, but I always thought they would be much to hard to make. However, they look like they would be a fun project. I especially would love to start with the baby bargello project.

    —Renee G on July 26, 2013
  • I have never tried a Bargello quilt! But there is always a first time! It would be awesome to win! I have no idea where to start or what to do!

    —Danette Roundy on July 26, 2013
  • I have made several baby quilts and table runners. It’s always exciting to see how the colour choices will play across the quilt.

    —Wendy on July 26, 2013
  • I like the "Glacier Bay" and "Love Song" quilts. Thanks for the chance to win.

    —Julie B on July 26, 2013
  • I’v wanted to make a bargello quilt for at LEAST 15 years!! I absolutely love these colors, looks like just what I’d choose! The hard part of choosing would already be done if I win these, then I’d just have to settle on a pattern. Looks like a LOT of nice ones here!

    —Vicki on July 26, 2013
  • I first fell in love with Bargello as needle point. Was absolutely enthralled when I saw a Bargello quilt for the first time. I finally had a chance to take a class to make one, and although it was a fairly simple pattern, it was beautiful. I have been fascinated by the twists and turns that I have sen lately, but have not had the time to try one. I am looking forward for the next challenge of the twisting patterns.

    —Penny on July 26, 2013
  • I love the look of Bargello quilts, but have never made one. I really love these quilts and this book looks like a great start. Definitely on the to-do list!

    —Sharon A on July 26, 2013
  • I love the bargello technique.in Eileen Wright’s book. The fabric along with the book would give me the jump start I need to make a fancy one that are displayed in the pictures. Loved them all. 🙂

    —Robin RK on July 26, 2013
  • The first time I seen a Bargello, I know that one day I have to sew one.
    The pattern in this book are beautiful. I would be more than happy to win.

    Christa on July 26, 2013
  • I just recently discovered a love for batiks, particularly in blues, greens, and purples. So far, I’ve just collected them; I haven’t found THE PROJECT. I’ve looked at bargello quilts before, but never dreamed I could actually tackle one. But after reading this blog, I think I want to try. She says it is a straight-forward kind of quilt. I do best with straight-forward things.I think Misty Morning (subbing greens for the pink/red tones) or Glacier Bay could be THE PROJECT!

    —Ziggyfan on July 26, 2013
  • I’ve made a couple – with reasonable success – but would LOVE to have a go at Misty Morning! Just love those colours!

    —Sue Sharp on July 27, 2013
  • I have never made a Bargello Quilt (thou it is on my wish list) I have a WIP that uses this technique to make a Trip Around the World Quilt.

    —Darrell Hardenburg on July 27, 2013
  • I have done Bargello and love it and want to do more. This fabic is perfect for all sorts of ideas. Love the new ideas.

    —Marty on July 27, 2013
  • I did needlepoint for many years* which included many bargello projects. I’ve been intrigued by the possibilities of translating those designs into fabric. I own Marge Edie’s bargello quilting book (also a Martingale/TPP imprint). However, I confess that the closest I’ve come to making a bargello quilt is Bonnie Hunter’s Scrappy Trip Around the World (not exactly bargello, but strip/tube construction).

    *and I still have evenweave canvas and a boatload of Paternayan yard if the urge strikes again!

    Nann on July 27, 2013
  • Love, love, love the fabric. One of the quilts I have always wanted to try.

    —Micki on July 27, 2013
  • I have made one bargello quilt and it was fun to see it come out of its shell

    —Lyn on July 27, 2013
  • love this style and look….very much want to do it in the colors of this fabric. please…..keep up this informative info…

    —cheryl cole on July 27, 2013
  • The closest thing to a bargello quilt I’ve made is one of those swirl quilts. I still remember the thrill I felt as each strip went on – bargello is like magic! The patterns from this book that you show look so enticing, and that fabric couldn’t be more luscious.

    —Carole S. on July 27, 2013
  • When I first began quilting only three short years ago, my co worker was attempting a Bargello quilt. It was a stunning quilt and left me with the desire to attempt making one myself. I have it on my bucket list of quilts to try! Thanks for the opportunity!

    —Nancy on July 27, 2013
  • I have been quilting for about four years now and so far have not attempted the Bargello quilts. I love everything about them but have thought they might be more than I could handle…..However I do love Strip piecing so your post certainly is encouraging me to give it a shot!! Thank you for the opportunity to win!!

    —Barbara Spurr on July 27, 2013
  • I have made 2 Bargello quilts. My two little grand daughters fought over the first one, so I had to make another one. I used the 2 1/2 inch strips to make them. They love the Bargello patterns, and the quilts were easy to make. Sea Glass is one of my favorite new lines of fabric. I just love the quilts, and wanted to keep them both. Next I am going to try one for myself.

    —Ruth Wingfield on July 27, 2013
  • these quilts are beautiful…i would love to have the fabric to try to do one…i love them..hopefully you will pick my entry so i can have a project for the coming winter….Thanks!!!

    —Marg C. on July 27, 2013
  • Beautiful fabrics! I have made one bargello and would love to make another.
    A design wall is very helpful with these kinds of quilts. Thanks for the chance to win!

    —Karen on July 27, 2013
  • I purchased 2 6-packs of the Sea Glass Tonga Treats because the colors are so beautiful but was not sure what I would do with them. Now that I see how spectacular they look in a Bargello quilt, I may try one.

    —Mary on July 27, 2013
  • I’ve wanted to make a bargello quilt for 5 years since I saw one in a quilt show. I haven’t had the nerve to try it. I’m hoping this book will teach me how to do it.

    —Cynthia Green on July 27, 2013
  • I have made watercolor quilts and would love to try my hand at bargello; the colors and patterns are beautiful and interesting.

    —Lil on July 27, 2013
  • I have made several bargello quilts, with the latest being a round one. I used Christmas fabrics and left 1 seam open, to use as a tree skirt. Very effective!

    —Gloria on July 27, 2013
  • I love bargello quilts and have wished to make one for many years. The issue for me is collecting the various colors required. Usually the instructions call for 44″ wide fabric strips so a fat quarter collection won’t meet my needs. I have never seen a bargello quilt kit, but if I ever did I would buy it instantly (hints to quilt entreprenurs!).

    —Susan on July 27, 2013
  • I have made one bargello quilt that is complete. My second attempt is still in the making as I made a mistake and it was easier to put it away. I just love the way bargello quilts look and I’m ready to try a new method. Can’t wait to see who wins.

    —Olga Castillo on July 27, 2013
  • I have always wanted to try a bargello quilt but am intimidated by having to pick fabrics that go from light to dark. I tried a watercolor quilt from a kit and just could not see the differences between light, medium and dark. And that was with a kit! I can’t imagine trying to pick the fabrics on my own for a bargello. It looks like the fabrics in the tonga treats would take the guess work out of choosing fabric. Some day I will try a more challenging quilt like the bargello.

    —Georgia on July 27, 2013
  • I have never made a Bargello quilt, but I would love to learn how. I think they are just beautiful..Thank you for the opportunity to win. Edna .. dollsem1@frontiet.com

    —Edna Kidd on July 27, 2013
  • I have made a Bargello guilt. It was one of the first quilts I ever made, years and years ago. It was a quilt as you go pattern. I enjoyed making it and it turned out ok. The fabric was nothing compared to the batiks you show here. They are very beautiful and would love to have them.

    Phyllis on July 27, 2013
  • I believe this is just the book I need to complete the Bargello for my cousins son! I pray I win as I just cannot afford it. Thanks for the opportunity =)

    —Anne on July 27, 2013
  • Island Sunrise gives you the feeling of the day being created and expanding just as the sun rises above the horizon and spreads golden rays out across the dark land to waken it to begin a new day, new in every way. Bargello is an exotic form of color creation and pattern movements that I can’t wait to try. The possibilities and choices are endless and the Tonga 6 Packs give you all you need to start creating.

    —Lynn on July 27, 2013
  • I am also one of those that is intimidated by the bargello quilt. These fabrics and pictures and the book are tempting me! Good luck everyone!!

    —D Fraser on July 27, 2013
  • I have wanted to make a Bargello quilt since I first started loving quilts in college. My time was limited for quilting when my kids were young, then through school….typical. Now, I’m suffering from an awful empty nest syndrome and now I finally have PLENTY of time to concentrate on a more complicate project. I just hope after all these years my piecing and quilting skills are up to it! I am happy they are all doing well on their own, so I can’t wait to get started. Thanks for the chance to get started with great fabric.

    —Peggy on July 27, 2013
  • I have made two bargello quilts and love them. Both quilts have received comments as to how beautiful they are and how difficult it must have been to make them. I would love to win the book and the fabric…..lol However, don’t want to be selfish, so either one would be wonderful.

    —Sarah Warren on July 27, 2013
  • I haven’t made one yet, but it’s been on my list of "make someday" for a fairly short amount of time. I didn’t know how easy they were to put together, and no clue of the technique. I’ve been admiring them for a long time!

    kriswithmany on July 27, 2013
  • I have made one bargello, it was called Big Block Bargello. Since then, I have wanted to make another bargello, and it is on the list. Someday!! This fabric giveaway and the new book would be great to make a new quilt, just in time for Christmas presents!!!

    —Marie Gilkey on July 27, 2013
  • I would love to make a bargello quilt like the watermelon quilt or similar. It is a darling rendition. With these fabrics I’m sure inspiration would strike.

    —Stephanie Woodward on July 27, 2013
  • I have always wanted to do a bargello quilt…..they are mesmerizing. I may just get one done this winter.

    —Mary Chasey on July 27, 2013
  • Bargello quilts have always fascinated me. I have tried the technique once in a class, but the quilt is unfinished. I think I would do better starting with a pattern, and then move to more free-form designs – maybe when I retire! The bargello baby quilts were an inspiration as I have a baby quilt that I need to start and was looking for inspiration. It would look beautiful in the Sea Glass batiks, especially since the baby is a boy.

    —Anne on July 27, 2013
  • Bargello quilts just have not appealed to me until I saw "Argyle." It is absolutely stunning, and has changed my mind! Beautiful work, and the green is spot on.

    —sue t on July 27, 2013
  • I love Bargello quilts – I’ve made many! I really enjoy the whole process! Can’t wait to see this new book!!! Look forward to making Argyle & Island Sunrise in particular! Fabric is wonderful bonus!

    —Charlotte Furchert on July 27, 2013
  • These are not your grandmother’s bargello quilts! These are some awesome and creative patterns! Have not made one yet, but these ideas are calling my name!

    —Jillb on July 27, 2013
  • Would really like to make a bargello quilt like some of the ones pictured in the new book. Thanks for a chance to win the ebook and the wonderful fabrics!

    —Barbara Kantola on July 27, 2013
  • Awesome! making a bargello is still on my wish including a lot of courage to go along. Love to see the striking work of others and would love to tackle a small bargello project of my own.
    Cheers
    Carol

    —Carol on July 27, 2013
  • I have a box of bargello strips that I made for fall, but haven’t gotten around to putting them together. Does anyone else do this? You have inspired me to dig it out and try some new ways to piece the strips together. I would love the ebook and the fabrics are fabulous.

    —Elizabeth Larson on July 27, 2013
  • I have not made a Bargello quilt but with more experience under my belt I hope to some day. I think they are beautiful.

    —Jackie Wisherd on July 27, 2013
  • This is the first time that I’ve ever seen a Bargello quilt, and it took my breath away!! I couldn’t stop staring at them!! I’ve always wanted to make a special quilt for my bed, and I think I’ve finally found it!! This quilt is so amazing, and worth the effort involved in making it. The sad part is that it’s going to be locked away in the bedroom, instead of being out in the open. I suppose that I’ll have to make some sort of throw for my living room as well, for this is also a work of art, which is to be enjoyed. Thank you for such a generous giveaway as well!! That alone is half the battle!!

    —Peggy R on July 27, 2013
  • I have always wanted to make a Bargello quilt. It looks so complicated. I see that with the strips it would make the work so much easier. I just retired and I am ready to try a new adventure

    —june carter on July 27, 2013
  • I have wanted to create a bargello quilt every since I saw my first one in a quilting magazine but it looked so hard I have been a chicken to try & make one as I would be quite disappointed to muck it up waste good materials. I need a tutorial that is simple step by step for me to try it. So if your sew book is of this variety I would love to win it.

    —marion bp on July 27, 2013
  • I have only been quilting for a little over a year. One of the women in my quilting club made a bargello and I fell in love. I have been searching for the perfect one to make and I love the Glacier Bay one. I am ready to start a new quilt and this would be perfect. Thanks for the oppritunity to win this.

    —Debi Martin on July 28, 2013
  • I saw a picture of a Bargello quilt about 2 years ago and I still have a vivid picture of that quilt in my mind, just felt I never had the experience to try it. Then only last week I visited a friend of mine who just finished the top of her first Bargello quilt and she showed me the technique. I am amazed! I will try one just as soon as I finish my current 3 projects. Really appreciate your generousity in the giveaway.

    —Helen on July 28, 2013
  • I have seen many Bargello quilts at quilting shows and wished I could make one. Quilting programs on TV make it look so easy. When I have the time, something always gets in the way. I have just finished a Wedding Ring bed runner for my daughter. Now, I think it is time to make the Bargello quilt for myself. The donation of the fabric is great. It sure will make some lucky person very thankful.

    —Elaine on July 28, 2013
  • I have not made a Bargello quilt….but how can I resist trying???!, particularly if I were "so very lucky to receive the beautiful fabric"!
    I would use "the gift" to create the land, sea, and sky surrounding
    "The Eagle" of the quilt I am making for my oldest grandson.

    —Mary Arline Smith on July 28, 2013
  • I made a double heart bargello, and if I can do it, anyone can! I made it in masculine and soft colors for our bed and its a favorite. It really is amazing how it all comes together. Would love to win her book, thank you for the giveaway.

    —Dianne on July 28, 2013
  • These are ALL just so beautiful. I could never decide on just ONE. I love softer colors because it is soothing. I may just try to make this. I love the idea of the giveaway, makes life worth living…and even if ‘I’ don’t win, I think it’s fabulous ♥

    —Clara on July 28, 2013
  • I love the look of the Bargello but have been terrified to try it. Maybe winning will help me with my fear!! 🙂 thank you!

    Marilyn Mathews on July 28, 2013
  • Hope one day I can do some nice quilting as you are showing.. 🙂

    —Handan Adle on July 28, 2013
  • I love Bargello quilts and how fun and easy they are to make. My next one will be a baby quilt for my first grandchild! Thank you 🙂

    —Margie on July 28, 2013
  • Love the colours and it would be challenge to make a Bargello.

    —Angela Rickett on July 28, 2013
  • Wow, these quilts are wonderful. A must try.

    —Susan on July 28, 2013
  • I love the idea of Bargello quilts. I’ve made needlepoint Bargello and love to quilt so combining the two is awesome and I would love to learn the technique. The quilts shown are absolutely beautiful!

    —Susie on July 28, 2013
  • I have done quilts using French Braid which is similar, but I haven’t been brave enough to try Bargello. The book looks great and would take me through the process. I think the quilts are beautiful and want to make one.

    —Donna Alvested on July 28, 2013
  • My mom has been a quilter for as long as I remember- and man can that woman make absolutely anything from scraps of fabric. I’ve been searching for years to try and find a pattern special enough to make a quilt for her this Christmas, to show just how inspiring she’s been to me in my own quilting explorations. As soon as I saw your "Argyle" design with those stunning green contrasts, I knew I had found something that she would truly love as a gift from her daughter. Thank you so much for publishing the image! Come next paycheck- I’ll be snagging a copy of your book to help the project along =)

    —Adria on July 28, 2013
  • I have made several bargello quilts, specifically Madison Star by Karen Gibbs. I love the technique and how it makes something that looks so difficult so easy! I love to strip piece and this is why bargello is a wonderful way to use all those strip sets!

    —Barbara Wolfe on July 28, 2013
  • I made a bargello quilt about 13 years ago, I was very inexperienced at the time, however, my quilt turned out great and is proudly displayed in my breakfast nook on the wall. It was exciting to see the quilt come to life and I learned a lot during the process. I think it’s time I made another one.

    —Sharon on July 28, 2013
  • I love bagello quilts, I like every one I’ve seen. But it looks so difficult and complicated, and I have difficulty with colour choices for normal quilts … what would I be like choosing colours for Bargello?. Those quilts are really beautiful, masterpieces. Thanks for sharing.

    —caran on July 28, 2013
  • I have not made one but would love. I think I will start with pillow case top/band or a table runner.
    I especially love the b/w one with a musical note.

    —nancy in IN on July 28, 2013
  • I have a memory quilt to make for my sister-in-law and the bargello method will help me create the design that I have in my head.

    —Sandi Frenke on July 28, 2013
  • I have a really cute bargello Christmas runner pattern, pulled out fabrics for it and…just haven’t plunged in. Maybe this would get me jumpstarted! Thks.

  • I fell in love with bargello quilts a few years ago after seeing 2 in a Quilt Festival in Vermont, I took pictures and my daughter said right away that was what she wanted me to make in pink. I collected 20 pieces of pink fabric and put them in a box. Since then I have used a few pieces for a baby quilt, so will have to go through my stash again. I have better understanding of value now so will look at my mauves and reds and hope to find the right pattern.That book would sure help.

  • I have been intrigued by this pattern for quite some time. This new book caught my interest and I ordered it the day it became available. I am a little intimidated by the amount of different fabrics needed, but look forward to completing one of them soon.

  • I wandered into a quilt shop in Valentine, Nebraska years ago. There on the wall was a big Bargello heart quilt. It was awesome!! I bought a book with some beginner projects, but that’s as far as I got. 🙁 It is definitely on my "bucket list" of quilt designs!

  • Love Bargello and all the possible color combinations! What a great give-away! Thank you, Linda

  • When my children were little I had the opportunity to learn Bargello needlepoint from a wonderful fiber artist. As I was leaving for her class one evening my son was upset that I was leaving him with a babysitter. I patiently explained that I was going for my mental health. With his hands firmly planted on his little hips he informed me that he had mental health too. So Bargello always brings a smile to my mental health when I see it. When my son’s son was born I began teaching myself to quilt and I would love to once more take care of my mental health by learning to make a Bargello quilt.

  • Wow – the "Misty Morning" quilt is beautiful! I’ve never made a bargello quilt but I’d love to try and they all look so neat! Plus, I really like the colors in the Tonga Sea Glass fabrics!

  • I have a kit to make a table runner but was not able to take the class that my guild had. Had thought that it would be to hard but it’s a on my to do list. I really like Argyle , Love Song and would love to win.

  • I have always admired bargello quilts, but always thought that they would be something that I would never be able to make. Looking at the above example on how they are done, I know I can do this! If I am the winner this week, I will make a bargello quilt my fall quilting project!! I promise!

  • I have had a Bargello quilt on my wish list for years!! Now that I have a few years of quilting under my belt, this might be the push I need to try making one!!

    —Lisa on July 29, 2013
  • I would love to do a Bargello design in autumn colors as a runner for my Thanksgiving table…I’ve wanted to try this technique for a bazillion years because it is so unique!

    —Karen Isaacson on July 29, 2013
  • The Bargello quilts have always caught my eye, they are beautiful pieces of artwork! My friends and I had the opportunity to take a class where one of the choices was a Bargello quilt. We were all so excited but as we later confessed, were all afraid to accept the challenge of the Bargello. When the quilt instructor asked which project we wanted to work on next, we all chose a much simpler table runner, citing that we could finish it much more quickly. We all secretly (for a while!) continued to drool over the Bargello, stating after we finished the table runner that our next project would be a Bargello pattern. We have yet to take another class and now that we all confessed our hesitations, still plan on tackling a Bargello!

  • Being nearly 72 years of age, I have thought that I was too old to even think of making a Bargello Quilt, but my artist’s eye tells me I simply must attempt one before I leave this world. My fingers shake at the idea of all those small bits together, but the way my heart seizes up when I look at a finished one, I am convinced I must make one for myself. I need to get a complete book to aid my choice, so this would be an absolute dream for me to win. I will have your book even if I don’t win this drawing. I find the "lusting" just too strong to ignore any longer. Oh, I have been sewing for about 65 years now and the desire to make these quilts grows stronger every single year. Help!!!

    —Ele W. on July 30, 2013
  • This looks like the best book ever! Can’t wait to buy one and start sewing these wonderful quilts!

    —Jean Cruickshank on July 30, 2013
  • I began quilting because I fell in love with a bargello quilt but have not made one because they look so difficult. This looks like I could do it! I am finally ready and "chomping at the bit" to get started. My three quilter sisters will follow me… we just need to do one and all of us girls follow suit.

    —Bobbi Cornejo on July 30, 2013
  • Our guild had a retreat a few years back as a fund raiser for "Relay for Life". The quilt we did was a bargello, and was so much fun that I ended up doing another one for my sister and her husband for their new home. I would love to win this book because it has so many different ways you can achieve a beautiful quilt that will last forever. The fabric is a wonderful bonus and incentive. Thank you for giving us an opportunity to win this wonderful prize. <3 Rae

    —Rae Pillor on July 30, 2013
  • I’ve never made a Bargello quilt but it’s definitely on my "quilts I want to make" list. I don’t know which one I like the most, they are all so beautiful! I really like the colors in the Tonga Treats pack, it would make a beautiful quilt. The book More Twist-and-Turn Bargello Quilts would be a great bonus too!

    —Sheila on July 30, 2013
  • I have a bargello pattern that has been waiting patiently to be started for several months. I also designed a seascape wall hanging that was a modified bargello for a class I taught a number of years ago. The class was a hit and students were surprised how easy it really was to do. The book has some very interesting designs and I always love Timeless Treasures batiks so I’m really hoping you draw my name.

    —Kathy S on July 30, 2013

    —Lanett Bair on July 30, 2013
  • I have wanted to make a Bargello quilt for several years. I even bought a couple books with patterns. But the large size has kept me from trying. I would love to win this book and make the baby quilt. And winning the beautiful fabric would be a great start to another Bargello quilt. 🙂
    Thank you for the opportunity to win!

    —Sheila Fernkopf on July 30, 2013
  • Wow! These are some of the most wonderful Bargello quilts I’ve ever seen, and although I haven’t had the urge to make one before, now I do! And batiks and bargello are made for each other! Fingers crossed!

    —Diane Nishri on July 31, 2013
  • I saw a gorgeous bargello quilt in Yoder’s Department Store in Shipshewana, IN and that sparked my interest. But, how do I squeeze it into my very long list of projects to do!!!

    —Annie on July 31, 2013
  • I missed a class that our guild had on Bargello quilts so I’ve never made one. I’ve seen several designs that have called my name but have just never made the time to teach myself. I know I could if I just took the time to try. Positive thinking is very powerful!

    Cindy A. on July 31, 2013
  • I’ve wanted to make a bargello quilt ever since I saw Marge Edie’s book "Bargello Quilts" in our local library 6 years ago. I’m intimidated by the number of seams and trying to keep the strips straight! would love to learn Eileen’s method…

    —Patricia on July 31, 2013
  • As a beginning quilter, Bargello quilting is on my "want to learn" list. I have done several needlepoint Bargello pieces and love the looks that you can get using this technique.

    —fran on July 31, 2013
  • I have been wanting to do a Bargello quilt for a number of years now, but choosing the color gradation scares the bee jebbers out of me. But I will one day (I hope) get over this and take the plunge. I love the pattern on the front of the book being given away. What a thrill it would be to be picked to get the give away fabrics–they are lovely.

    —Linnie Middleton on July 31, 2013
  • I have made several needlepoint Bargello pillows when I was in high school. I recently saw one in the Eureka,CA quilt show and fell in love with it. I really would like to make one of my own as I always loved the patterns you can make as you twist and turn the colors.

    —Katy L on July 31, 2013
  • I’ve had a Bargello quilt on my "To Do" wish list since I started learning to quilt. They remind me of the bargello needlepoint pillows I made in the 70’s.

    Thank you for sponsoring this giveaway!

    —Cheryl Greenleaf on July 31, 2013
  • I sooo want to do a bargello, but I’ve been intimidated I guess. I love the baby quilts…looks like a great place to start. Thank you for the giveaway.
