Aurora Borealis Bargello 11/1/17

Aurora Borealis from Twist and Turn Bargello with Diane Tuttle

Wednesday 11/1/17 and Monday 11/6/17 from 10AM-4PM


This lap sized quilt is a great place to start exploring the world of Bargello quilts.  We have combined a great assortment of fabrics into a kit so you don’t even have to worry about picking out the fabric! Finished size about 42” X 58” with borders.

This project is two classes. Diane will start out the instruction on 11/1 , give you a little homework and you will return on 11/6 to finish up your quilt top.

The required book – Twist-and-Turn Bargello Quilts is a fantastic text and contains 11 projects, color photos and complete instructions for making them from start to finish. It will be a great addition to your library and one you will turn to again and again for intriguing projects awash with color.



CLASS FEE: $35 SKILLS: Confident beginner-intermediate

KIT FEE: $ 59 – 20 Fat Quarters to make the top. Borders not included.

  • Sewing machine in good working order
  • Neutral piecing thread (med gray is good for this project) and wound bobbins
  • Rotary cutter(with a new blade) and mat
  • Rulers: 6”x 14”, 6” or 9” square, Stripology ruler (very useful, but optional)
  • Your personal sewing kit – scissors, seam ripper, pins, glue stick, fabric marking pens

  • Optional: We will be doing quite a bit of pressing so a small iron and press mat would be helpful



  • Stabilize and press all fabrics BEFORE Best Press or starch works best for this process. Stabilizing your fabric is an important step in assuring a beautiful finished product and takes some time to do. Making sure this is done prior to the first class leaves more time for instruction.
