Community Quilt 135

13 04 2014

I loved the colours in this quilt! And as soon as I pulled it out of the bag, the cream centre just screamed ‘McTavishing!’ to me, so that’s what I did. I also stitched around the main parts of the appliqued flowers in the centre to make them ‘pop’ even more.

I left the dark green borders unquilted, and did my quick and easy cathedral windows motif in the checkerboard borders using a variegated orange/copper/pink/ginger/peach rayon thread.

I was really pleased with how this quilt looked after I’d quilted it.

Wow – impressive quilting & someone did beautiful applique and piecing. I’m trying to learn the language of quilts- been waiting for one to speak to me for months now! Ha – how happy I will be when the quilt starts to “scream”.
