I have found the name of this pattern and where it was published. It is called Tahitian Postage Stamp and was featured on the cover of Quilt World Magazine May 1988. I tried to find the link to the…Continue
"Thank you Liz, Kris and Riana. I’ve made several Bargello quilts. The process can be a bit tedious and boring, but the end results are just so cool that I keep doing them.
Kris, all of them are going to get Bargello in their favorite…"
"Another great quilt Kris! I love using minky backing, I just wish it came in 108 inch wide pieces so it didn't have to be pieced for larger bed-sized quilts.
How satisfying, Riana, to be nearing the end of such a large project.
"Too funny Kris, I am also making quilts for my grandsons. Also, all of them are going to be backed with Minky! I just finished cutting the strips for #3 of4 and delivered #2 today. I’m making them all large Bargello quilts. Figured they…"
"Beautiful quilt Kris! Your niece is a lucky girl. Ive been working on projects that aren’t on my UFO list. I’m trying to get new big quilts for my 4 grandsons before the end of the year. Just finished Bargello #2 (needs trimming and…"
" Thank you Elizabeth! He really is the sweetest boy. It is now his “new favorite blankie”!
I’ve sewn the Snowman block down (#4) and started sewing the Wreath block down (#5) and have completed all the pieces on the Christmas…"
"You're welcome Liz! I wish she had more videos, but there are probably others who use that method who have more of an online presence.
I love your needlework Riana. It is gorgeous!
I gave my grandson his green bargello when he came for a visit…"
"Hi Liz-These blocks are made using the off-the block freezer-paper and starch method. Pearl Piera of P3 designs uses it and has a few tips and techniques for doing these blocks. I do admit, I wish she had more detailed instructions with the pattern…"
"Me again! I have completed the preparing of pieces for Block #6 and have just the mittens left to sew down on the Snowman block (#4). Block #6 is called "Christmas Bouquet" but it requires me to embroider some pine boughs on the background…"
"Riana-Thanks for that! I don't have the talent or patience for needle turn applique, but I love the results. I know we are the most harsh critics of our work, but the bells are pretty messy. I am loving the progress on your travel quilt too.…"
"Finished making the pieces and placing them on the background for block #5 of the Baltimore Christmas quilt. I need to fix a couple of thing with the bells but I am hoping I can do that with my needle as I sew it down. Those pieces were just…"
"So the Green Bargello is completed and ready to be gifted to my grandson. I actually have pulled out the Baltimore Christmas quilt and begun making the pieces for block #5. I also have done some sewing on block #4 which I made all the pieces for and…"
"Thank you Linda, Ginny, Liz and Riana. That quilt is a huge amount of work. Riana, I didn't fix the alignment issue, I just kind of scrunched in the next couple of hoopings so the applique would still fit on the border. If you look up close you…"
"Both are beautiful Riana!
I finished assembling Valley Blossoms #2 this morning. I also completed the task of removing the stray threads from my green bargello. My plan is to piece the minky backing and start quilting that one today. Here is the…"
