Community Quilt 181

25 01 2015

This was a very ‘busy’ quilt, with lots of tiny half-square triangles and many many different fabrics, including an equally busy fabric in the border.

How to quilt it? I realised that doing anything other than a simple all-over motif would be lost in the ‘busy-ness’ of this quilt, so I opted for a variation of my ‘go to’ open headband motif. Instead of arcs, the centre part of each motif is a paisley (or a really big comma!).

I used a variegated thread in autumnal colours in all parts of this quilt, including the stippling in the border.
