Community Quilt 130

8 12 2013

This was the final one of the current batch. Again, it was a bright scrappy quilt. How to quilt it?

I figured there was more than enough going on in this quilt as far as colour and pattern went, so I opted for an all-over continuous line motif — one of my old favourites: the ‘open headband‘ motif. I made the arcs quite large, which meant I was able to quilt this quilt in just over an hour (I continued the motif into the border so I didn’t have to quilt that separately).

I used a variegated thread in blue, purple, and green, which I thought matched the quilt quite well.

Community Quilt 129

Another scrappy jelly roll strip style quilt… this time in reasonably bright colours. While I quite liked the effect of the strips in the quilt, I’m not sure the border fabric adds much — while the colours are OK, the floral pattern clashes in my opinion.

I decided to quilt this one ‘modern’ style, with continuous line stitching in a square/rectangle motif. I used a variegated overlocker thread in primary colours that I’ve had for YEARS, which I though worked quite well with the colours in the quilt.

  • Top: No idea! It’s a variegated overlocker thread in primary colours that I’ve had for years and there’s no label on the spool
  • Bottom: Bobbinfil (white)

Community Quilt 128

This was a pretty pastel scrappy quilt, done in a jelly roll strip style. The temptation was to quilt it ‘modern’ style, but I decided to use a soft rounded motif instead, using a variegated soft pastel thread.

I like how it turned out.
