Community Quilt 209

17 05 2015

This bright quilt was a larger version of Quilt #201, but essentially the same. So I did mostly the same quilting on it — echo stitching around all the applique motifs (after stitching in the ditch around the blocks and the applique pieces, of course).

In the sashing strips, I stitched a straight diagonal line across each square. And in the aqua border I free-motion stitched elongated U’s of various lengths, keeping them about a half-inch wide.
