Community Quilt 157

24 08 2014

This smallish quilt took ages to quilt, as I stitched in the ditch around EVERY coloured square and the borders. Once I’d done that, I stitched various largish motifs inside each large on-point square, then did a simple meandering stipple  in the white space and in the border.

Just some simple stuff.

Again, your work is lovely. It is a nice quilt, but the finish is perfect.

ps–Could you move Australia a little closer to the United States so you can quilt one for me?

Looks wonderful Rhonda!! Worth all the effort to achieve that effect.

We had a busy day today at the CQ Bee. Although the main emphasis wasn’t on kitting up tops we still got a few done and there are a few that I thought you might enjoy…. will get down your way yet!!

Cheers Gwen
