A bargello quilt is one that is made of strips of fabric sewn together to create movement. These patterns look complicated, but many of the designs are very suitable for beginning quilters to both piece and draft using Electric Quilt 8.
In this class, we won’t stop at just drafting the traditional bargello quilts (although I do have a few cool tricks to share on creating those in EQ8). But you will also learn how to create some bargello-like blocks and additional layouts to highlight those blocks.
All of this will be presented in 13 Easy Peasy video tutorials of 5-10 minutes.
A video tutorial plus detailed step by step instructions will be sent to your inbox every Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
Cost: $30. For added savings, you may purchase a block or 3 or 6 months.
If you would prefer to start with a different Tech Know Quilters class, please feel free to drop me a note after your purchase.
Individual Tech Know Quilters classes may be purchased for $40 here. (These purchases are not tied to the subscription program.)

Thank you for the April Showers project Kari. Thoroughly enjoyed 'doing' this along side you as the video ran (proves to me that I am getting better at 'knowing' what to do!). I still learned news things though! We are (in the UK) experiencing a very wet patch predicted to last another week at least so lots of April showers here!
