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.

Your quilting is gorgeous and, I’m sure, prevented a case of insanity (yours) as I find an edge to edge quilting motif on a larger quilt really does drive me a bit over the edge. I would rather do it like you did…..using the pattern as a springboard for the stitching areas. You continue to be my ‘heroine’!! Hugs…..
