Bargello Patchwork Design
The inspiration for our Bargello Baby Quilt comes from the type of embroidery known as Bargello. Some historians believe this to be of Hungarian origin; however the name originates from a series of chairs found in the Bargello Palace in Florence, which have a "flame stitch" pattern.
The ‘flame’ stitches typically interlock at regular intervals to provide a geometrical pattern, which can be stitched in multiple colours.
Traditionally the Bargello design is stitched in tapestry threads onto canvas, and is often seen on church kneelers; however here at Perfect Patchwork we have translated this stitch design into a patchwork design. We have combined pinks and mauves to create a soft subtle colourful baby quilt.
We are currently working on Bargello cushions, wall hangings and bags, and a further baby quilt in the Bargello patchwork design but this time specifically for boys.
