Summary

Here's Bargello like you've never seen it before: stunning quilts full of free-form twists, turns, and 3-D effects that look like Op-art paintings. The biggest surprise is how simple these quilts are to make! Designer Ruth Ann Berry shows you how to use easy, straight-line strip piecing to create the illusion of curves in motion. 8 projects with complete instructions plus directions on how to create your own designs. Slice up your stash—novelty fabrics and even ugly fabrics look good when cut up for Bargello piecing. Large-scale quilts look spectacular on a bed or on the wall.
