There are pictures of some beautiful quilts in this book. And this book teaches you how to make your own beautiful quilts. There is a chapter on how to create colorwash effects, how to read and apply color, value and visual texture. How to create harmony and contrast and so much more. Then it goes on to show you how to cut your fabric and construct your quilt, and how to add borders. This book will take you through the process from beginning to end, with lots of tips and techniques to make things easier.

I cannot wait to get started on my quilt. I have been collecting fabric for a few months now, and I think I am almost ready to dive in. The plan is to make a quilt for all of my daughters, and grandchildren, and these Bargello quilts really speak to me. Great book!
Wouldn't recommend for a beginner to quilting.Nothing is mentioned in the book to explain the sewing of the strips together to prevent what is called " bowing".It is a crucial step in bargello to keep things straight.
otherwise the patterns were great.
I thought the patterns were rather repetitive and the sizes of the projects were hard to work with. That is to say, most of them would not fit a bed very well and many would be too large for a wall hanging. That being said, the section on design and color choices was informative and thought provoking. The author's techniques for constructing and sewing were new to me and I may try her process on a small project to see how it works.
Excellent book! The Bargello quilts look so difficult but if you follow the Beth An's steps, the quilt will come together nicely. I recommend this book to any quilter who is thinking about trying this process.
I was somewhat disappointed, it had cool pics of quilts, but not the pattern..the book does have some good tips to do a bargello quilt..but not a lot of fault of the seller
Great book on color coordination and bargello
Love this book, fast delivery!
Wonderful book. Easy to follow the pattern I chose.
