Community Quilt 129

8 12 2013

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

I think it could be classified as a very ‘Happy Quilt’. I don’t think the border is too bad (from your photos). Love your stitching choice!!!!!!

My thought was “very cheerful”. Someone will have fun wrapping themselves up with that. Borders seemed alright. Interesting that serger thread can be used – I have plenty of that.
