Community Quilt 240

24 11 2015

This big log cabin quilt was created with some lovely autumnal scrappy fabrics.

How to quilt it? I stitched in the ditch around the large blocks first, to stabilise it. Then countered the geometric nature of the log cabins with large spirals in a variegated thread, morphing into squared-off headbands, and then into open headbands. So there are three quilting motifs in this quilt. In the border I echo stitched a straight line (using the Line Tamer ruler) about half an inch from the seam line.
