Community Quilt 205

7 05 2015

This bright scrappy quilt had LOTS of bias edges, so needed quite a lot of quilting to flatten it out.  I decided to follow the overall ’roundness’ of the pattern and stitch large yellow spirals all over the main part of the quilt, leaving the solid blue and black borders. I stitched arcs in the scrappy border.

Swirls are my “go to” for such situations, too, and yours suited both the piecings and the bias dilemma!!!
