Back Cover Information

Bargello Quilts with a Twist presents an innovative alternative to traditional bargello quilting. Maggie Ball's versatile 16-piece Bargello block—constructed from only four sets of four strips—is quick and easy to piece. From there, you can manipulate the block to create an enormous variety of designs with flowing lines and interesting secondary patterns. Add sashing and/or turn the blocks for an on-point setting to generate even more unique quilts.

Bargello Quilts with a Twist features:

  • 16 projects ranging from a beginner lap quilt to a mega-block masterpiece.
  • Clear step-by-step instructions and detailed photos.
  • Advice on fabric selection, with special tips on color, value and scale.
  • A wide variety of setting options to inspire creativity.
  • End-of-chapter galleries depicting further examples of Bargello block quilts.
  • Blank diagrams and charts to help quilters plan their own unique quilts.
