Community Quilt 239

15 11 2015

This bright colourful quilt was lots of white space, some applique, and a patterned fabric that looked like it was applique.

How to quilt it? I started by stitching in the ditch around all the blocks, applique pieces, and borders to stabilise it. I then echo quilted the appliqued and fake applique pieces, and did a stipple in the white space behind the fake applique blocks. In the setting triangles, I stitched a very simple fleur de lis type of motif, and then just some wavy lines in the borders. I left all the green sashing strips unstitched.
