About the Class
A Bargello is a dramatic quilt with strips pieced together to create a sense of movement. The first step is to sew 2½” strips together. Then they are cut apart and sewed back together in a way to create the design.
As a young girl Marianne loved doing everything her mom did and
learned to love crafting and creating. She was knitting by age 5 and sewing her clothes by the age of 12. One summer between college semesters she spent the evenings at her grandmother’s house hand quilting
with her. Marianne’s love for quilting was just beginning. Shortly after
moving into her current home, just over 30 years ago, she was invited to
join a quilting group. They would spend one evening a week gathered
together quilting and learning piecing and applique techniques. Those
mentors became some of her greatest friends. She’s been hooked ever
She has spent the last 30 years taking classes and meticulously learning
new techniques and finding fun and efficient ways to make beautiful
quilts. Recently she started creating her own patterns and projects and
didn’t know she could love quilting even more! She is always looking for
new patterns and techniques and loves every step of the quilting process.
Quilting isn’t just a fun hobby, it gathers friends and families and creates
lasting memories! Marianne loves seeing her grandbabies snuggled in
their quilts or her kids and their families having a picnic on a quilt she’s
made! Marianne hopes that “Quilting with Marianne” will help others create memories and find their passion for quilting.
