Community Quilt 103

18 08 2013

This was a fairly ‘busy’ scrappy quilt, with an equally ‘busy’ border fabric.

I decided to quilt it in feathers, starting from the centre and working out along the diagonals and from the centre to the mid-point of the sides, with a few extra stems added so that no feather was super large. In each feather, I also stitched a centre spine to reduce the puffiness.

I used a variegated thread in red, blue, purple, green and orange for the feathers and the same thread for the flames in the border fabric.
