Community Quilt 292

3 09 2016

I’m not really a fan of these colours, but together I thought they worked really well. To keep with the simple shapes, I decided to quit vertically in the three strips on the sides, and horizontally for the three middle strips. Each line is about 1 inch apart. Yes, I used my Line Tamer ruler for this!

Community Quilt 291

3 09 2016

To counterbalance the rectangular shapes in this quilt, I decided to quilt large circles with a smaller inner circle coming off at a tangent.

Community Quilt 290

3 09 2016

This was a BIG eye spy quilt for a kid, with each ‘jar’ containing some sort of bug or other animal (I had to photograph it on its side as it would’v e dragged on the ground otherwise). I decided to just do a simple large meandering stipple as there was so much ‘busy-ness’ in this quilt that anything else would’ve been overkill.

Community Quilt 289

For this quilt, I just used a simple variation on the ‘open headband‘ motif, adding a slightly curved hook to the point of the inner arc.

Community Quilt 288

I took my quilting inspiration from the curves in the border fabric, following those curves in that border, and then using a similar curve sort of on the diagonal in the main part of the quilt.

Community Quilt 287

3 09 2016

Such a simple quilt, but really effective with the scrappy blue fabrics tat toned so nicely. I quilted straight line ‘X’s cut in half with straight lines that followed the square shapes as I didn’t think it needed a lot of heavy quilting.

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.
