One of the biggest problems my students have when making a bargello quilt is selecting the fabric and then grading the fabrics from light to dark. As I am writing a new Bargello online class, I decided it would be fun to share some information about how best to select your fabrics and grade ready for the class to begin. Of course, this will also be helpful for my existing students and other projects such as color wash quilts where you need to grade fabrics from light to dark.
