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.
