Community Quilt 230

14 10 2015

This quilt was made up of approximately 2.5-inch squares of fabric ranging from light at the top to dark at the bottom. As with other very visually busy quilts, I just stitched it with a simple all-over motif — a large meandering stipple for this one, using a variegated thread of brown, green, and orange.

Community Quilt 229

Another scrappy quilt, this time of approximately 1-inch squares sewn into 6×6 blocks. The person who made the quilt top also top-stitched the squares — I’m not sure why.

Because  it was such a busy quilt with all those fabrics and all those tiny squares, I just quilted it with a large meandering stipple, in a matching blue thread.

Community Quilt 228

14 10 2015

Someone spent a lot of time putting these blocks together! At least, that what it looks like — perhaps there was a quick way of doing these offset half-square triangles and pinwheels?

Each square was only about an inch or so wide, and lots of scrap fabrics were used, making it a very busy quilt, visually. There was no point doing elaborate quilting on it as it would just get lost in the busy-ness of the blocks, so I opted for a large meander across all the blocks in a matching blue thread. I used the same thread in the border, where I stitched mountain peaks of uneven heights (freehand, no rulers or markings).
