Community Quilt 109

2 10 2013

What a pretty little quilt this was! All those bright autumn tones and cheery leafy fabrics.

I started by stitching in the ditch around the blocks just to stabilise the quilt, then I outline quilted the centre block of leaves. My original intention was to do the same in the border, but it took quite a while just to do the centre, so I abandoned that idea quick smart!

In each French Braid block, I did a continuous line quilting design of leaves, with more leaves in the sashing strips. And keeping with the leaf theme, I did HUGE leaves in the border 😉

This was another quilt I quilted at the retreat so I can’t remember what thread I used — sorry! (it was a variegated cotton thread in autumnal colours…)

Fall is definitely here! Love the leaf pattern in the sashing, especially. 16″ of snow forecast for the Black Hills of South Dakota!!! It’s coming for us!!! Ugh!

Pretty quilt! I’m from SC, still pretty sunny and hot. Can’t imagine snow! Was in the Black Hills this summer & Yellowstone. I want to do a “Yellowstone” memrobilia (sp) quilt with the animals “blocked”, not appliqued. One of my future projects.
