Community Quilt 222

16 08 2015

How to quilt this quilt? I started with straight line echoing and ribbon candy in the maroon Vs, followed by cathedral windows and a cathedral window variation in each alternate 9-patch block. In each centre, I stitched an 8-petal free-motion flower with each petal hitting a corner or seam. I left the pink and green triangles unstitched, then straight-line echoed in the border and filled the space with a ribbon candy motif.

The un-stitched gives a nice place for your eyes to stop and take it in. Well done.
