Batik Bargello Quilts

Christine Forrester of Coochin Creek Quilts has designed some spectacular quilt patterns using striped batik fabrics by Batik Australia.

Our amazing tutor Pamela whipped up a sample for the shop and we were so impressed that we had to put on a class for this one fabric bargello technique.

Pamela's sample using Bargello Stripe #38
 We had a full class of ladies on Valentine's Day who were all keen to learn this fabulous technique with Pamela's expert guidance.

We can't wait to see all of the completed Bargello quilts from this class.  Such a clever use of this stunning variegated fabric.

Happy Stitching! Kimz Team x
