Bargello Wall Quilt

Use an array of pastel batiks to get the subtle color changes needed for a watercolorlike wall hanging. The strips are pulled from assorted Tonga Treat bundles of precut 2-1/2"-wide strips (in colors Taffy, Hard Candy, and Meringue) from Timeless Treasures.

Assemble Quilt Top


1. Select an A band (we used a 1-1/4"-wide A band). Remove stitches joining fabrics 1 and 24 to make row 1. Lay the row horizontally on a design wall or large flat surface with fabric 1 at the left-hand edge (Quilt Assembly Diagram).

2. Select a B band (we used a 1-1/4"-wide B band). Remove stitches joining fabrics 1 and 2 to make row 2. Lay row 2 below row 1 with fabric 2 at the left-hand edge (Quilt Assembly Diagram).

3. Select an A band (we used a 1-3/4"-wide A band). Remove stitches joining fabrics 2 and 3 to make row 3. Lay row 3 below row 2 with fabric 3 at the left-hand edge.

4. Continue in same manner, using A bands for odd-numbered rows and B bands for even-numbered rows, to make and lay out 16 rows total. Refer to Quilt Assembly Diagram for order of band widths used in the featured quilt.

5. Join rows. Press seams in one direction. If desired, trim quilt to 40-1/2" in width (red line on Quilt Assembly Diagram).
