We are so excited about Eileen Wright’s new book, More Twist-and-Turn Bargello Quilts! A follow up to Twist-and-Turn Bargello Quilts, it debuted July 9th from Martingale/That Patchwork Place, and offers up 10 fabulous strip-pieced projects.
Wright has an awe-inspiring sense of color. The first thing we noticed about these projects was her amazing use of palette and tonal movement. Some quilts are cool and calm while others are bright and richly saturated (view photos of all the projects by clicking “See more images” here). We can’t wait to dive into her “Bargello for Baby” quilt with our Treat Strips in Sugar or maybe some Java Blenders for a monochromatic version! Tips and tricks for fabric selection are included in the book, so you can achieve the same “wow factor” in your own one-of-a-kind creations at home.
We’ve teamed up with Martingale for a two-part giveaway today to celebrate the book’s release! We’re offering a copy of More Twist-and-Turn Bargello Quilts to one lucky winner, and Martingale is giving away a Treat-6Pack in color Sea Glass here. The wide strips are just perfect for Eileen’s bargello technique!
