Community Quilt 237

15 11 2015

This large quilt was full of autumnal colours, and a striking piece of backing fabric.

I was almost tempted to turn the quilt over and follow the design of the backing fabric for the quilting. However, I decided not to, instead stitching in the ditch along all the diagonal seams, then stitching large looping ribbon candy in the lighter coloured diagonal bands, leaving the darker bands unstitched.

For the border, I emulated the ribbon candy stitching really large loops of it to hold the layers together. The border fabric was very busy, so there was no point in doing anything too elaborate in it as it would be lost.
