Community Quilt 71

7 04 2013

This was a BIG quilt. I didn’t realise how big until I started quilting it. Instead of doing an all-over design, it decided to feature feathers in the light blocks, leaves and curls in the green areas, more feathers in the light border, and curls in the other border. As a result, this quilt took well over 6 hours to quilt. Had I stuck with an all-over design, it might have taken less than half the time. But I was happy I spent the extra time on it, as I think the quilting complements the quilt well.

Community Quilt 70

This one was very similar to Community Quilt #68, so I quilted it in the same way, using an all-over flame design in a bright orange for the main top, and just emphasising the large white dot paths in the border in black.

Community Quilt 69

What a cheery quilt this was! Bright colours, complemented by the white. I suspect a young girl/teenager will love it. In keeping with the bright cheerful colours, I quilted it with an all-over design variation on ‘open headbands‘, in a bright fluoro orange thread.
