Community Quilt 192

1 03 2015

This quilt was made up of fairly traditional blocks and colours, so the only option was to quilt it using fairly traditional motifs.

After stitching in the ditch around every block, sashing strip, border, and applique piece, I then stitched a different design in each block.

I kept the border simple by just stitching a double straight line about half an inch from the seam and then another quarter inch out from that stitched line.
