Make mesmerizing bargello quilts 😍 with strip-piecing ease (+ giveaway!)

Bargello quilts are a perennial favorite of quilters worldwide—and Strip-Pieced Bargello will help you get the hang of making gorgeous quilts in this strippy style!

Strip-Pieced Bargello

So, how do you create a bargello quilt? Simply sew strips of fabric together, slice them, and arrange the strip-pieced units into mesmerizing swaths of movement and color. Even newcomers to bargello can achieve flawless results with the easy-to-follow charts included. Just wait until you find out author Judith’s Steele’s secret to success (hint: you DON’T have to be precise)—it’s like quilting by number!

From Strip-Pieced Bargello

Start with just 4 or as many as 24 fabrics to sew a table runner, wall hanging, tote, tree skirt, and larger quilts. Armed with Judith’s tips for making bargello designs accurately and her smart methods for staying organized, you’ll be ready to make your first—or your 21st!—bargello beauty.

Here’s Judith to tell you more about her book—welcome to Stitch This!, Judith!


Judith SteeleHi! I’m Judith and I design and make quilts in the most remote and sunny state capital city in the world—Perth in the state of Western Australia. We have beautiful beaches, unique flora and fauna, and gloriously wide vistas, all of which helped to inspire the projects in Strip-Pieced Bargello.

If you’ve ever tried making anything bargello, you already know that the quilts may look complicated, but they’re easy to sew. In the book, all the sewing is done with straight seams. With detailed instructions and a chart to follow for every project, any complications you may have thought might trip you up just melt away.

For beginners, there are three small projects to get started—a baby quilt, a table runner, and a tote bag—that teach the basic techniques needed to make bargello projects while creating lovely and useful items. After that, you’ll be ready to take on any of the larger projects in the book, all of which use the same basic techniques, just on a larger scale.

One bonus when making bargello projects is that they’re quite forgiving. If you find that the corners of the patches are a little bit off, just leave things as they are and keep sewing on. Due to the designs themselves and the optical illusions they create, it’s almost impossible to see the small imperfections that sometimes creep into our work.

It was so much fun designing and making all these projects. I hope you enjoy gathering your fabrics and having a go at something a bit different. Then you can experience the joy of looking at your finished piece and knowing the satisfaction of a job well done.

  • I have had a barbell quilt on my "someday" list for a couple of years. I’ve had it on several times, then took it off because it looked too hard. Some of the smaller projects show look like something I could do to get started!

    —Sandy Allen on March 27, 2019
  • I’ve admired bargello quilts from afar but never had guts to try one myself!! Would love to try to make a baby quilt or something smaller to build my confidence.!!

    —Missy Reynolds on March 27, 2019
  • Making one is on my to-do list.

    —Amy Cofer on March 27, 2019
  • I’ve long had a desire to make a bargello quilt. My mom used to do bargello needlepoint, and those pillows she made are some of my favorites! I really like the beginner tablerunner pictured in the post, so I may have to (finally) give it a try!

    —Kresti Lyddon on March 27, 2019

    —Robin Stuckman on March 27, 2019

    —Arliene Zeigler on March 27, 2019

    —Vicky on March 27, 2019
  • I have not made a bargello quilt. After looking at projects in Steele’s book, I think making a twisted bargello bed runner, or table topper, would be a perfect starter project.

    —marlene on March 27, 2019
  • I’ve made a small Bargello with an "A" in it for our local sports teams and some flag bargellos which are very popular but I am ready to tackle a bigger one. Thanks.

    —Connie German on March 27, 2019

    —Terry on March 27, 2019
  • I started a bargello about a year ago and it has been hanging on my design wall unfinished ever since. My seams are not matching and it takes me about 30 min to add a row. I need your tips!

    —Bonnie May on March 27, 2019
  • I’ve tried 2 w no success!

    —Angelia Ulrich on March 27, 2019

    —Mary ann on March 27, 2019
  • I started a very small Bargello wall-hanging about 10 years ago. Despite the very tiny pieces, everything was going well until the instructions for each row stopped and there were at least 5 more rows to go! The remaining instructions were not clear enough for me to be able to finish it. It’s still sitting a box, waiting for me to try again.

    The projects in Judith’s book are lovely! I’d love to win a copy – especially since she promises clear directions!

    —Judy W. on March 27, 2019

  • I have had a bargello quilt on my to do list for over a year. I am trying hard to finish all my important UFOs (like granddaughter’s quilt) before I start something new. Someone asked me to make a table runner for my husband’s niece.The
    pattern he chose was torture. The bargello table runner here looks so fast and easy ! The birthday is 3 days away- so I would not have the time to start again on it and get it mailed to her.

  • I have never made a bargello quilt, and never had a desire to make one because I didn’t have the confidence or the skill to make such a complicated piece of art. Judith’s quilts are beautiful and I’d love to give it a try withthe help of this book.

    —Fran Bianchi on March 27, 2019
  • I have wanted to make a bargello quilt for many years. I think it would make a great birthday gift for my great grand daughter. I started sewing when I was 12, and made a pair of shorts from one of the fabric sacks our chicken feed came in. After retirement, I started making quilts. Everyone gets a quilt at Christmas time. It takes me all year to get them made. I would love to make a beautiful quilt like this for family and friends as well.

    I hope I can win your new book

    —kathy duncan on March 27, 2019
  • I made some bargello quilts many years ago when they first became popular. We were all enthralled with the new rotary cutters, rulers and mats. Quilt making had become so much faster an easier with our new tools and we were anxious to try all the new techniques. The new book looks exciting, sparking new interest.

    Irene on March 27, 2019
  • A bargello quilt has been on my quilt bucket list for at least 25 years. I thought….when I retire.. But, ten years into retirement, I still haven’t made one. Someday, though. I promise.

    —Elaine on March 27, 2019

  • I have been wanting to make a bargello quilt for years but afraid of not picking the right colors or sewing it together correctly. This book looks very interesting!

    —Judi Rizzo on March 27, 2019
  • So many quilt patterns so little time! I love these out of the box quilt patterns that use the color of the fabric to make the pattern stand out even more. Will hopefully get a bargello quilt done by the end of 2919. I like the idea of starting with a baby size quilt. Organization of the fabric is the key to success in bargello, I was recently told. This book looks like it is the first step needed to get the fabric organizing started.

    —Jan Nelson on March 27, 2019
  • No, I have not made a bargello quilt, but plan to in the future. Thanks for the opportunity.

    —Janna on March 27, 2019
  • I made a fall Bargello lap quilt about 25 years ago after I first started quilting. About 4 years ago, I took a 2 Fabric Bargello quilt class (with ombre fabric) and have made about 6 of them now, even teaching a class on them. Would like to someday make one with a heart or lots of movement in it. Thanks – Robert, from northern Iowa.

    —Rosemary Havens on March 27, 2019
  • Bargello quilts are mesmerizing. Long story… made a quilt top and had quite a bit of leftover fabric so decided to try my hand at a bargello quilt to use as backing/part of backing, thinking "how hard can it be?" Well probably 15+ years later after making a mistake while adding borders, the quilt is still sitting in my UFO pile aka sewing room. I’ve toyed with the idea of using it to make a headboard instead of a backing, but first I have to finish it! I need the help of this book.

    —Sherri on March 27, 2019

  • I haven’t made a quilt but I have made a table runner – loved the way it turned out but you really have to pay attention

    —Kathy Luehrs on March 27, 2019
  • I used 6 jelly roll strips to make a Bargello table runner. The process was not difficult (organization is the key). However, the choice of fabrics makes a big difference. I used busy novelty prints with many colors in each strip and it made the design too muddy. If I do it again, I suggest using solids, tone on tones, or blender fabrics.

    —Teri Nisbet on March 27, 2019

    —Kathy Collins on March 27, 2019
  • Way back in the mid-1970’s I learned to do bargello needlepoint (including four way designs). When I took up quilting again in the early 80’s (having learned to piece as a child from my grandmother), I thought about making a bargello. Here it is almost 2020 and I still have not done it!

    The photos for this book tell me that it is about time for me to dig in!

Thank you so much for this opportunity.

    —Ruthie on March 28, 2019
  • I made my first bargello quilt in a class at my local quilt shop. The instructor pushed us to use colors outside of our comfort zone for more impact. Since then I’ve made a couple more and love the way they come together. I would love a copy of this book knowing it would inspire me to create more complicated patterns.

    —Carol Schon on March 28, 2019
  • I have made one as a baby quilt for my granddaughter. Everyone was impressed by how "hard" it was to make. I had a lot of fun and would like to make another one only larger and a more intricate design. These designs really do inspire me. Since I am at work I cannot just go home to my quilting room and start playing so I will have to keep planning until 5:00!

    —Lisa England on March 28, 2019
  • I have made 4 bargello quilts, and I really enjoy choosing the colours for the most effective movement within the quilt. Judith’s book looks like it will help to address my hesitation about making one of those swirling bargellos going off in several directions.

    —Carol on March 28, 2019
  • I made a really simple Bargello-ish jewelry pouch in the early years of my quilting but it was not as eye-popping as the bed quilt beauties I’ve seen since then. So making one has been on my "To Do" list ever since!

  • Bargello quilts frightened me off because I was a hand-quilter, and pushing a needle through so many seams did not sound like fun. Since, my arthritis has encouraged me to move on to machine quilting. Thus, Bargello quilts seem more possible AND they are intriguing! I have thought about making one for the last 15 years! This book could help make this the year@

    —Gail K on March 29, 2019
  • His has been my dream and I have bought books but they are hard to understand. I have been quilting for over 50 years as I learned at my grammy’s feet. I love appliqué, in fact I love it all. I just need the push to do this but I always fear wasting material so Bargello has been post phoned. I only do large quilts or I make 60 x 60 for sick people or people just struggling with things. I need to make one of these for myself. I used to hand quilt but I have been machine quilts. I believe if you don’t Quilt it you can’t say your a quilter, your a sewer so I do everything from start to finish. So all that is left on my bucket list is a Bargello and a civil war quilt. I just ordered Civil War quilt books through this site.

    —Sandra Buss on March 29, 2019

  • I’ve had a bargello quilt in mind for several years. I have tried but it always comes up not roses! I want to make one for myself for a throw blanket. Hope a simple pattern will come my way!

  • I have made a 2 fabric bargello, 2 medium size bargello wall hangings, and several small bargello wall hangings. I love looking at bargello and want to make another.

  • I have always loved the look of round or curvy lines in a quilt, so very interested in exactly how to do it. I think these would work great for Project Linus quilts as well as small quilts for nursing homes, which I already do, but a change would be wonderful. Thanks for this opportunity.

  • I have never even tried to make one, but I would like to sometime.

  • I’ve admired bargello quilts for a long time, but haven’t had the confidence to try one yet. That lovely baby quilt might be a place to start!

  • I have never made a true bargello quilt but I took a class that taught a similar technique to make a "Trip Around the World" quilt.

  • I used the bargello technique on the yoke of a jumper I made. I customized the curves to fit the pattern piece.

  • I’ve wanted to make a Bargello quilt for ages, but my organizational skills are sadly lacking and I was afraid to try. Sounds like this book does the organizing for you, so I am thinking again about trying to make one.

  • I have not but seeing the quilts in the book makes me want to.

  • I made a bargello quilt for a niece more than 25 years ago. I used rainbow colors and quilted it by hand. Since then, I have made many other quilts, but I would still like to make one for me. I’m sure I don’t remember how I made the first one!

  • I have done a lot of pieced quilts but never a bargello one.mi would love to make the baby quilt but even more the dancing butterflies. I love the flow of bargello quilts and would love to win this book so I could learn how to make one. Thank you for the chance to do so.
