Community Quilt 110

2 10 2013

This was another small quilt I quilted at our retreat. It had already been finished and bound, and ‘stitch in the ditch’ around the blocks had been done, but the Community Quilts coordinator asked if I could rescue it and liven it up a bit.

It was a such a pastel log cabin quilt, with lots of small flower fabrics used — how to quilt it? I decided on an all-over continuous line motif of large and small arcs, emulating flowers.

This was the quilt while it was on my machine. On the right is how it looked when I got it — fairly plain, with just the stitch in the ditch quilting. I think I livened it up a bit with the quilting.

Threads used:

  • Top: Wonderfil Mirage in a variegated wine/cream/orchid/yellow (rayon, 30 wt, colour #SD 32)
  • Bottom: Bobbinfil (white)

There aren’t enough words to describe the “yummy-ness” of the texture and interest you added!
