Community Quilt 15

30 09 2012

What a brightly coloured quilt top this was! I decided to quilt it with all-over feathers, using several different variegated threads to match the colour panels of the top. The backing fabric was a plain calico.

These photos were taken before I squared off the quilt ready for binding, so you can see a little of the batting at the edges.

Threads used:

  • Superior Threads spool of an unknown colour (pale blue and tan mix) that came with my Sweet Sixteen; I finished the last of this spool. This was the same thread I used for some practice pieces when I first got my Sweet Sixteen.
  • Superior Threads Rainbows; 40 wt, colour 829 (orange, tan, cream variegated)
  • Superior Threads King Tut; 40 wt; colour 943 ‘Nile Crocodile’ (yellow, olive, and green variegated)
  • Superior Threads King Tut; 40 wt; colour 932 ‘Cairo’ (purple, pink,blue, and green variegated)
  • Wonderfil Silco; colour #SCM03 (pastel pink, yellow, blue and green variegated)
  • Bobbin: Wonderfil Deco-Bob; 80 wt; colour DB 112
  • Stitches in the quilting: 177,000

And the back:
