Community Quilt 127

30 11 2013

This was a big quilt, made mostly with batiks in purples, pinks, yellows, blues and greens.

After stitching in the ditch around all the large blocks and the border and the outer edge, I decide to counter the rectangular/square design by quilting it in a rounded motif. I used my favourite ‘open headband‘ motif, making the arcs much larger than usual to try to get this quilt stitched fairly quickly as I wanted to get it back to the Community Quilts coordinator on Monday. I extended the quilting design into the border.

I really liked how the King Tut variegated thread (in blues, greens, purples and yellows) matched the fabrics so well.

Beautiful finish!! The larger “headband” stitching was a great choice and shows off the thread well, too!!! You’ve well surpassed the “100” mark!!!!!
