Community Quilt 27

12 11 2012

The next quilt in the batch I quilted this weekend was a fun one! Cute little bunnies were appliqued all around the quilt, and the bright sunny yellow sets off the applique work of the maker really well. The child who is likely to receive this quilt will love it, I’m sure.

To make the appliqued objects ‘pop’, particularly in the centre panels, I quilted with a quite tight stipple (not a micro stipple, but not a large stipple either). I used a larger stipple on cream border panels, and a large leaf motif on the yellow outer border. All that small stippling meant that this quilt took several hours to quilt.

I tried to ignore the spelling errors…

Threads used:

  • Top: Superior King Tut ‘Papyrus’ (color #972), 40 wt (?) cotton (the cream thread); Isacord, 40 wt polyester, color 0506 (yellow)
  • Bobbin: Wonderfil Deco-Bob, 80 wt, color DB 115

The “pebbly” effect is perfect for the little bunnies!! Love the “smoke” from the chimney, too!!! Lovely as always!!! Blessings, D
