Community Quilt 78

6 05 2013

I loved the colours in this quilt, and with the fish and the butterflies, I was always going to quilt it with a flowing motif. And to enhance the colours in the quilt, I used a bright neon/fluoro lime green top thread!

I started in the centre with big dipping waves across the quilt, echoing these waves (to a degree) from the centre out, gradually making the waves less steep by the edges.

Update: I found out after I’d done it that what I thought were fish were actually parrots!!!
