Community Quilt 176

7 12 2014

This is likely my last Community Quilt for 2014. It was the last of the most recent bunch I had received, and I won’t get any more until I go to Perth on Dec 19 to pick up a US friend from the airport. As she’s staying with us until Dec 28, I doubt I’ll get any/many of whatever is coming to me in the new batch.

Like the previous quilt, this was a ‘busy’ scrappy quilt of many colours and wonky log cabins. I decided to soften the geometric lines by doing an all-over circular motif in red thread, opting for my ‘open headbands‘, which are lodged in my muscle memory 😉

Community Quilt 175

7 12 2014

There were a lot of scrap fabrics used in this quilt, so detailed quilting would have competed with, or overpowered, those fabrics. I opted for a simple ‘cathedral windows‘ design instead (just in the small squares, not the larger ones, which I left unquilted).

I left the first border unquilted too, and did a large stipple in the outer border.
