Community Quilt 120

4 11 2013

This was a pretty little quilt, but oh, those joins! Some were OK and nice a flat shwoing that the quilt maker had butted them up correctly, but the others weren’t, meaning that some 8+ layers of fabric were jammed into one spot. I had to go around them to avoid breaking my needle and damaging my machine.

One of the fabrics in the centre and the outside border fabric was a muted poinsettia, so I used that as the inspiration for the pointed flower motifs in each block. The second border fabric was a nice muted check, so I stitched along its lines and then stitch cathedral/castle window shapes into the big border to hold it down.

I used one of my favourite threads — ‘Driftwood’ (a Fil-Tec Harmony thread) — which has a lovely variegated mix of grey, tan, beige, and other lovely colours.

That thread (“Driftwood”) is definitely one variegated thread that works in a lot of places!! Very clever/appropriate stitching motifs. Another great finish, Rhonda!!! Hugs…..
