Spring Scallop Bargello Needlepoint Design
The bargello-pattern in this picture reminds me of the beginning of the spring season. It was stitched on Day 2 of the one-year bargello-needlepoint-challenge . Notice how the stitches create a rolling and undulating effect that makes one think of spring fields and meadows. Many bargello pillows have been crafted by some very famous home décor artists using this needlework-design .
I chose four complementary colors in soft yellow and green silk threads to stitch the six-inch bargello-sample . The direction of the bargello-scallop-design can be worked up or down to create stunning needlepoint-patterns . You’ll see what I mean in future posts where I will showcase several beautiful variations.
