What is a Bargello Quilt?

A Bargello Quilt is based on a needlepoint technique. Needlepoint Bargello is worked with yarns over five holes of canvas. The yarns are stitched in such a way that they move across the canvas going up and down in half steps. The stitched areas are thick (four canvas holes wide) and thin (one canvas hole wide) to create the feeling of movement.

Learn the basic construction of this flowing, striking and simple quilt. Billie takes you step by step through the process. Once you master the basic concepts you can try the more difficult layouts.

About Billie Lauder:

Billie has been teaching Quiltmaking since 1976. A third generation quilter, she has inherited her love of quilts from her grandmother and mother and has the ability to make quiltmaking easy and understandable for every level of quilter. Her teaching techniques and quilts have also been featured on seventeen episodes of the Home & Garden Television Networks series Simply Quilts! hosted by Alex Anderson. Billie is teaching various quiltmaking techniques across the United States for quilt guilds, shops and other organizations and is a certified teacher in Art and Anthropology.
