Community Quilt 77

26 04 2013

And then there are the wonky quilts… This one was the wonkiest I’ve tackled so far. All those bias edges were wonky when sewn into the blocks, and the border was wonky.

So how to quilt a wonky quilt with fabric that bunched up in many places? You beat it into submission with lots of fairly dense quilting! 😉

I chose a matching variegated thread in blues, greens and purples, using a rounded spiral morphing into spikes, then echoed with rounded hops. I have no idea what this design is called but it achieved the end result of flattening this very wonky quilt top.
