I love Bargello Quilts but have always been intimidated by them. Then I saw this fun pattern and knew I had to give it a try. It was fun and incredibly easy to make. There is a lot of sewing and you do need to be consistent with your seam allowance, but you will love the finished product!
Each block is 15" squaer and you only have to make 16, so you will be done in no time!.
Come try something new!
Size: 60" x 60" (On mine I added a border so you may need extra fabric if you do that)
