Community Quilt 234

1 11 2015

This magnificent and bright scrappy quilt had heaps of small squares and half-square triangles, and almost as many flying geese! Someone spent a lot of hours making it. How to quilt it? The busy-ness of the fabrics and the design didn’t lend themselves to anything too elaborate that would get lost in the craziness of this quilt. So I decided to do an old favourite in the main part of the quilt top — my variation of Angela Walters’ swirls, which I think sets off the sharp points nicely. For the border, I just stitched in the ditch around the flying geese and the pinwheels in the corners.
