How to Make a Staggered Bargello with a Pintail Duck Appliqué

The Quilters’ Community | Episode 35

Sulky of America national director of education Ellen Osten shares tips for staggered bargello, including fearless piecing, free-motion quilting, stipple quilting, appliqué and three-strip fail-proof piecing. Ellen also mentions her adhesive technique for KK 2000 and insists on using a point presser, in replacement of scissors, for pushing out corners. For more information on the Quilter’s Newsletter check out Quilter’!


  1. Loved all these short demo’s. Would like to see some that
    I could buy to use in my DVD player I keep in my sewing room. Now I
    have to leave my laptop and go to the other end of my home to work
    on my newest project.
