Karen Gibbs goes beyond the typical quilt by demonstrating how to incorporate bargello sections into traditional pieced quilts. This strip piecing technique uses color placement to create a geometric design to add the illusion of movement and depth. Karen's detailed instructions and diagrams make this method easy, and eight projects offer inspiration for using this style of quilting. "QUILT Magazine", October/November 2009, page 98.
