Community Quilt 172

1 12 2014

For this quilt, I decided to do some free-form feather medallions in the centre of each blank block. But before I started those, I stitched in the ditch around all the blocks and borders, and around the main elements in each scrappy block.

In the blank blocks, I started by marking a circle, then did the outside feathers and their echo, then the inside feathers and their echo, followed by some wavy cross-hatching in the middle.

I stitched free-form pointed arcs in the borders, finishing off the corners with a pointed arc and a swirly thing inside it.
