I think someone tried to use up some of their scraps for this quilt. Although there were some quite nice fabrics in this mishmash, the combinations just didn’t work for me. There seemed to be no rhyme or reason as to how the maker had put the fabrics together. The quilt looked OK from a distance, but up close it was hard on the eyes. And there was 1980s dusky green sheeting on the back.
How to quilt this ‘busy’ quilt? There was too much going on with the fabrics to do anything complex, so I went with a very simple 8-pointed wonky star in each block, after first stitching in the ditch around each block. I continued the theme in the sashing joins, stitching a little 8-pointed wonky star there too.
