Example for Gelato Bargello Class at Dark Star Fabrics

Just Two Fabrics


You have seen them in quilt shows: abstract tops whose colors ripple and flow in amazing curves.  Meet Bargello, a quilting technique that creates waves of color across a quilt by manipulating strips.

Join Alice Yates in making a simplified Bargello quilt using the Gelato pattern that needs only two fabrics.  An ombre fabric does the hard work, creating a perfectly coordinated color wash. Then a focal fabric adds a lightening bolt wave across the quilt.

You will come away with an exciting 42″ x 52″ quilt plus Alice’s tips and tricks giving you the skills you need to make more.
