Community Quilt 90

24 06 2013

Well, I don’t think I’ll get to 100 quilts in 12 months, though I’m close with 90 (I started quilting Community Quilts at the end of June 2012). This one is #90 and was originally going to be quilted by a friend of mine, but she’s sold her house and is in the process of packing and moving. I know what that’s like, so I offered to do it instead.

This was a nice little eye-spy quilt, with lots of bright colours that went well together. I decided to do an all-over design — my ‘squared off’ open headband motif. In keeping with the bright colours in the coloured blocks, I used a variegated thread I’ve had forever, in the red, blue, yellow, and green.

Even though the quilting is quite dominant, I quite liked how it turned out and how the thread choice complements the coloured blocks.

Threads used:

  • Top: I have no idea! It was a thread I’ve had for a long time and any identification on the spool has long gone.
  • Bobbin: Wonderfil Invisifil (red, 100 wt, colour IF 202)

Thanks Rhonda – you did a wonderful job too.

Nicely done! Very appropriate quilting and thread choice. Do you use a stitch regulator?

No, no stitch regulator. Just LOTS of practice. Well over 9 million stitches on my Sweet 16 in the past 2 years.

Such a perfect pairing: the pieced patch squares and the curves of your “headband” stitching!! And the thread……genius!!! Lovely in its simplicity!!! Hugs……
