This Giant Log Cabin quilt is a little different, different fabrics are used to make up each “log strip” rather than one continuous fabric. Which means you get to use a much wider variety of fabric, and the look is more random.
This is a super quick and easy quilt pattern, a great scrap buster…and you can make it with very little brain power. If you’ve never made a quilt before this pattern is a great place to start.

The definition according to most dictionaries is: ”a needlepoint stitch that produces zigzag lines”. Quilting has adopted this age-old technique, originally made with multiple colors of thread, using multiple colored fabrics to reproduce a similar effect. With this method, there is lots of movement within the quilt design due to the contrast of fabrics side by side. The key to making the Bargello design work is to have a fabric run ranging from very light to dark. Many Bargello quilts are in a monochromatic color scheme while others are made with a complementary color scheme.
