Community Quilt 22

23 10 2012

What a pretty quilt top this one was! I really liked the colour wash that used much of the colour palette, and the sharpness of the piecing against the crisp white background.

I followed my friend Michelle’s suggestion for doing straight, simple lines in various variegated threads in this quilt. I liked the effect of ‘squares within squares’ that the straight stitching created (yes, I used my Line Tamer ruler to do the straight lines!). Along with Community Quilts 18, 19, 20, 21 and 23, I also completed this one at my quilt retreat last weekend.
