Community Quilt 76

26 04 2013

Some quilts just sing. And this one had a whole choir going on 😉

I love batiks, and I especially likes how the maker combined shades of batiks I’d never have thought to put together to make this HUGE quilt top (I think this is the biggest I’ve done on my Sweet Sixteen). With the colour and the chevrons, and the overall linear movement of the quilt, I just had to stitch it with straight lines, a la modern quilting. I used a variegated thread with purples, greens, and browns/tans. And I used my Line Tamer ruler for the straight lines.

Update Sept 2014: This quilt became a raffle quilt, raising $1850 for a charitable organisation and going to a lovely family:

Threads used:

  • Top: Wonderfil Mirage (30 wt, polyester?, colour SD 29)
  • Bobbin: Wonderfil Inivisifil ( 100 wt, polyester, navy)

Ah – love the straight line quilting. That’s all I do these days. You are too productive for words!
