Easy Bargello Rainbow Baby Quilt!

Happy New Year!

Today I'm sharing a fun rainbow Baby quilt in the Easy Bargello quilt pattern!  It's such a fun and happy quilt and was so quick to make.

The Easy Bargello quilt pattern is available in the Busy Hands Quilts shop.


The Easy Bargello quilt pattern includes the Twin size which is perfect for a single jelly roll.  The pattern doesn't include the baby size.  I calculated how to make the Baby size when making a quilt sample for my local quilt shop to display.  I may release a supplement to the pattern for additional sizes at a later date.  💓


Longarm Quilting


The quilting design is Diagonal Bias Plaid in gray thread on my HandiQuilter Fusion with ProStitcher.  It's one of my favorite quilting designs with the modern feel from the consistent repeat of a geometric pattern.

This quilt would look beautiful quilted with simple diagonal lines on your home sewing machine, as well.


Solid Fabrics


This quilt is made with Kona Cotton Solids from my scrap bins, along with Kona Shadow, and a Benartex Rainbow Ombre fabric as the backing.

You can see two other Easy Bargello quilts right here.  One is a bright rainbow like this one, and the other is a muted rainbow with a charcoal background.

Easy Bargello features a rainbow, but other fabric schemes would work well also.  Using one color that gradates from light hues to dark hues and then back to light and then back to dark a few times would also be amazing!  Or choose two colorways with many hues of each color.  Or choose all scraps!





Strip Pieced


Easy Bargello is entirely strip pieced for a quick finish.  Sew strips together, then sub-cut them and sew them into the quilt top.  There are no seams to match which is very nice.  

If you've never made a Bargello quilt before, this is a great pattern to start with since there are no matching seams, and all of the strips are the same width.  This makes it very easy to keep track of everything during the assembly process.


I hope you're inspired to make your very own Easy Bargello quilt!
