Community Quilt 169

28 09 2014

This was an odd quilt. Odd shapes, odd colour combinations. (As always, my opinion only! I don’t make them — I just quilt them.)

How to quilt it? Well, for starters, I stitched in the ditch around all the dark shapes. I was thinking of doing something geometric in the pink areas, but I only had three small spools of various pale pink threads from different manufacturers, so I decided to do an all-over motif so that it wasn’t obvious where I changed threads as each spool ran out. I mostly did a combination of feathers and spirals.

Threads used:

  • Top: Gutermann Sulky variegated pale pink ( 40 wt, rayon, colour 2100); Robison-Anton (40 wt, rayon, pale pink — no idea of the colour as the label went missing long ago); Madeira Rayon (40 wt, rayon, colour 11120)
  • Bottom: Fil-Tec Magna Glide Classic pre-wound bobbin

I like this one the best of the three – like your swirls and feathers.

Not such an odd shape. Those are called lozenges.
