I didn’t particularly like this quilt, but that’s me. I’m sure the person who put it together liked it and I’m sure the recipient will like it.
Anyhow, my job was to quilt it and pass it back to the Community Quilts organiser.
How to quilt it? With the wonkiness of the seams, and the puffiness of some of the centre blocks, I started by stitching in the ditch around every centre square and block and the first border. Then I decided to just do a simple large meandering stipple to hold it all together. I left the first border (a dotted turtle fabric?) unstitched, and stitched flames in the red border in the same variegated thread I’d used for the stipple.
