Argyle Quilt – King


The Argyle Quilt is a contemporary Bargello quilt pattern. The definition of “Argyle” is “a pattern composed of diamonds in two or more colors.” This eye-catching design is sewn to capture the beauty of exquisite diamonds; its beauty will be a gorgeous focal point in any room.

This handmade Argyle Quilt boasts a scalloped border all the way around and over 250 yards of hand-quilting, all quilted by only one Pennsylvania Amish quilter to insure uniform stitches.

This quilt’s size is generous enough that you will not need a bed skirt; the length is sufficient for a pillow tuck to enhance the beauty of your bed instead of hiding it with pillow shams.

Quilt fits a king-size bed and has a 19 inch drop.

Measures 116″ wide x 116″ long.

Homemade quilts combine the warmth of a bed cover with a unique story told by the quilters from Lancaster County, PA. Every homemade quilt is as unique as the family, busy mother or Amish ladies group who uses a needle and thimble to thread stitch on the quilt. Some quilts involve hundreds of hours and thousands of stitches to create a unique patchwork quilt that will last for generations.

Tracing the Threads of the Bargello Quilt Pattern’s History

Quilters love the challenge and beauty of this technique and continue to use it in creating an endless variety of new shapes.

Quilters didn’t create the Bargello motif; it was first found in needlepoint embroidery, on the upholstered chairs from the Bargello palace in Florence, Italy, dating from the 17th century. With this origin, the pattern has variously been called the Bargello stitch and the Florentine stitch. It’s even called the Hungarian point, since there is evidence that Hungarian royalty, including Queen Maria Theresa, also practiced this art.

Traditionally, Bargello Quilt’s embroidery is sewn with wool thread on canvas, using mathematical patterns of stepped vertical stitches. Quilters adapted these patterns, sewing together long strips of material and cutting them crosswise to make lines of blocks, then offsetting the rows to each other. Cutting narrow strips and setting them in steep stair-steps creates the fiery, sharp points on the Bargello Flame quilts; cutting wide strips and placing them in gradual stair-steps produces the flowing waves of the Surf Song quilts.

By now, the Bargello Quilts pattern has morphed into many different variations–the criss-crossing weave of the Mystic Night pattern, the flowing hearts of the Love Within pattern, the interlocking diamonds of the Argyle pattern, and the joined hearts of the Linking Hearts pattern.
