Community Quilt 160

10 09 2014

This ‘Chinese coin’ quilt just called out for some straight ‘modern-style’ stitching across it, so that’s what I did after first stitching in the ditch around each of the dark borders. My Line Tamer ruler got a decent workout on this quilt!

I liked the final effect of the dark burgundy thread on the lighter fabrics.

I love how this turned out, Rhonda! Simple and very pleasing to the eye. That is a LOT of straight lines/ruler work, though…I would have been daunted at the thought! 🙂

Hi Judy

It wasn’t that difficult with the Line Tamer ruler. After stitching in the ditch around the maroon strips, I stitched in the ditch across each horizontal seam (up one and down the next to stop any warping), then went back and stitched in the middle of each horizontal strip, again up one and down the next (or L to R, then R to L if I’d kept the quilt horizontal on the table).
