COSMIC TWIST BARGELLO-Kathy Johnson

Cosmic Twist Bargello

58 ¾ X 80 ½

This eye-catching quilt from the book Twist-and-Turn Bargello Quilts by Eileen Wright is not as hard as it looks. You just need to keep yourself organized. Kathy will give you lots of great tips to help you with the organizing! You will be sewing strip sets before coming to class so that we can get right to cutting and piecing this quilt together. These take quite a while to make so don’t wait until the last minute!

Choosing Fabric:
This quilt uses 20 fabrics in two color groups: 5 in one color group (green) and 15 in a coordinating color group (blue). Fabrics in both color groups should range in value from light to dark and include one or two fabrics that consist of both colors. Think about adding one or two zinger fabrics to the group.

⅝ yard of 20 fabrics for bargello
⅝ yard of dark fabric for binding
5 ½ yards of fabric for backing

Cutting a sewing before class: Starch all your fabrics before you start cutting!

Refer to page 14 for sewing the strip sets together. Refer to page 32 for the order your set should be sewn. Number these fabrics 1 – 20 in the order you want them.

Cut 5 – 2 ½” strips from fabrics 1 – 7 and 15 – 20
Cut 4 – 2 ½” strips from the remaining fabrics.
Sew 4 strip sets of fabrics 1 – 20 following the instructions on page 14
Sew together one partial strip of fabrics 1 – 7 and one partial strip set of fabrics 15 – 20
If you really want to try this technique but feel overwhelmed with a large quilt, you may choose to make the table runner on page 88. You will need ¼ yard of 10 fabrics. Cut 3 – 1 ¾” strips from each of the fabrics and make 3 – strip sets.

We've invested a lot in threads and it is increasing. Watch and learn how to run Specialty Threads and how to control the other many pesky threads that are refusing to cooperate, which you already have on hand. I'll pass around so you can handle close-up over 15 threads and explore their characteristics, learning how to adjust your bobbin tension and top tension for running on your own machine.
