Community Quilt 184

29 01 2015

This was quit a large quilt, but fortunately it didn’t have any bias edges and most of the seam joins were nice and flat. First, I stitched in the ditch along every diagonal strip (painfully tedious, but had to be done).

Then, because there were a lot of floral scrappy fabrics in this quilt, I stitched an 8-petal flower motif in the centres of each each on-point block. Instructions for doing these flowers are here: https://rhondabracey.com/2015/01/27/quilting-an-8-petaled-flower/
