Learn How to Quilt It!
Unlike most classes on bargello quilts, you're going to learn far more than just how to piece a beautiful quilt top. You'll also learn how to audition quilting designs and how to mark the surface so your quilt design is easy to stitch.
You'll then learn the basics of both walking foot quilting and free motion quilting, and use these skills to quilt the Waterfall Bargello with a stunningly simple design.
Along the way you'll learn how to move the quilt smoothly over your machine, how to quilt the same design on two different scales, and how to add decorative threads to the surface using bobbin thread work.
Do you have a bargello quilt you’ve been wanting to finish?
All of the instructions in this video workshop could be applied to any bargello style quilt.
Watch the videos and follow along step by step to transform your bargello quilt from a useless unfinished project into a beautifully finished quilt.
You'll even learn how to trim and bind the edges of the quilt and add a hanging sleeve so you can enjoy your quilt on the wall.
Just in case you've never made this style of quilt before, we've included detailed instructions for piecing the Waterfall Bargello in this workshop.
