Community Quilt 207

13 05 2015

This small scrappy quilt was full of very busy fabrics, many of which seemed quite old. So simple quilting was called for.

I started by stitching in the ditch around all the blocks, sashing strips, and borders. Then I free-motion stitched a simple elongated ‘U’ shape in each block, alternating side-to-side and up-and-down, creating a checkerboard effect.

I repeated the ‘U’ shape at a smaller scale in the borders.

Threads used:

  • Top:¬†Robison-Anton (40 wt, rayon, colour unknown [but a purple of some sort — possibly ‘Mulberry’, colour 2380, based on the colour chart I have])
  • Bottom: Fil-Tec Magna Glide Classic pre-wound bobbin (black)
