I quilted four Community Quilts on my quilting retreat weekend last weekend. I didn’t keep track of the threads I used, so unlike the others I’ve documented, you won’t get thread choices in these posts.
What a pretty quilt this was! Navy and yellows just go so well together. There was a lot of work in this quilt, and like #152, it just cried out for different quilting motifs in each block.
As usual, I started by stitching in the ditch around each block, then around each appliqued piece. Once that was done (yes, it took a few hours…), I tackled each block separately, deciding on one or more quilting motifs to stitch in it. I did all the navy blue stitching first, then the stitching with the yellow thread.
