Community Quilt 159

10 09 2014

This quilt just didn’t ‘sing’ to me and I took ages trying to figure out how to quilt it. It sat on the back of a sofa for a couple of weeks first, with me hoping to get inspired every time I passed it. It wasn’t to be…

I knew I’d have to stitch in the ditch around all the scrap fabric squares, so I started with that. The empty white spaces were then quite puffy, so I did a simple point-to-point star effect, but still the middles were too puffy, so I did an eight-pointed star inside each one of the big white spaces.

Not my favorite quilt to quilt, and it was BIG too.
