Editorial Reviews

3/26/14 The Professional Quilter Magazine
I love when older techniques are revived and refreshed, and that is the case with the Bargello quilt. I remember making my first one and marveling at how much easier it was than it looked. That quilt hangs in my cousin's home today. Ruth Ann Berry looked at ways that she could separate the moving parts in the design from the static background. She came up with four different solutions to do this: what she calls a scribble on a solid background; a scribble on a background of busy prints; the scribble and background made from different, contrasting color runs; and a solid-color splash across a series of plaids or a background of stripes. I never would have thought of plaids years past. I loved the energy that the quilts reflect. In addition to the eight patterns she includes, Ruth Ann also teaches you how to draft your own original design on graph paper.
June 2014 Quilter's Digest
Here is a new twist on the classic Bargello quilt. Ruth Ann shows you how to create quilts full of free-form twists, turns, and 3-D effects. She teaches you how to use easy straight-line strip piecing to create the illusion of curves in motion. Cut up your stash of novelty and even "ugly" fabrics; they will look great in these large scale projects for beds or walls. Instructions are provided for eight quilts, plus information on making your own designs.
