Community Quilt 189

21 02 2015

This was a big quilt, with big pinwheel-type blocks. It was nice and square and well-constructed using some lovely fabrics (colour as well as ‘hand’).

How to quilt it?

First, I stitched in the ditch around all the blocks using a matching Invisifil thread to stabilise the quilt. Then I free-motion stitched big brown leaf motifs in the brownish pinwheels, followed by big green leaf motifs in the green pinwheels. I used the same green thread for the large circles in the border.

  • Bottom: Fil-Tec Magna Glide Classic pre-wound bobbin (dark gray)

Beautiful! That would be a hard quilt to “give away”.
