Community Quilt 286

1 08 2016

The last quilt of the latest batch of community quilts — a lovely bright ‘I spy’ quilt made up of fruit and vegetable fabrics.

I quilted it with a continuous line motif based on an inner spiral and outer ‘fingers’, using a variegated thread in yellow, green and purple.

Productive weekend follow-up

30 07 2016

I made 13 quilt tops on my annual quilting retreat with my friends. I’ve now quilted them all, and have donated some to the Community Quilts program (Community Quilts 280, 281, 282, 283, 284, and 285).

The others I’ll either give as gifts or list for sale on my Etsy store in the next few days. Below are the ones I’ve kept for these purposes.

Community Quilt 285

30 07 2016

This was one of the quilt tops I made on our quilt retreat weekend and donated to the Community Quilts program. They supplied the batting and backing fabric — I did the rest. In keeping with some of the floral fabrics, I did a variation on the open headband motif, adding ‘petals’ to the large arcs.

Community Quilt 281

Another small baby quilt likely to go to the state mortuary or the maternity hospital. Again, a simple stipple to hold the layers together was all that was required.
