Ocean Currents: Quick Bargello Quilt Pattern

Go with the flow for a whale of a good time! This swashbuckling crib quilt uses the simple yet dynamic bargello piecing technique to make a super stylish quilt super fast. Read Go, Go, Bargello! on the next page for tips and tricks on working with this popular technique. Gigi made her quilt top with a fat quarter bundle, though you may use yardage if you prefer. The stripe fabric seen in between the white crab print and navy anchor print is cut on the lengthwise grain to make best use of the stripe. If you are not using a stripe in this area, cut strips on the crossgrain, or you may decide to eliminate this thin strip entirely without affecting construction. One great benefit to bargello piecing is how easy it is to alter and change a pattern to suit your particular style. The left and right sides of the quilt are identical, though flipped vertically. When cutting tube segments, cut two at a time in the same way so that there will be a pair of identical segments, one for each side of the quilt.
