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.

Cathedral Windows – what a good idea. Like it.

Wow – that’s a really nice quilt. The subtle colors allow not just secondary, but 4 or so design patterns to pop out.
