Description

Ready to take Bargello to the next level? Master advanced techniques in Bargello by constructing Ruth's original "Bargello Blues" design step by step. Making this quilt will help you discover the techniques used in advanced Bargello quilts and prepare the groundwork for creating your own design. Understanding the construction will allow you to move to the next level - designing your very own bargello. We strongly recommend Ruth's Bargello Seasons as a prerequisite for this class so you can learn the basics of Bargello building.
