Community Quilt 241

24 11 2015

This was a HUGE quilt, and it had been partially hand quilted by its creator. My job was to finish the quilting, which took many hours (especially the McTavishing in the large border on three sides). I started by stitching in the ditch around each block, border, and applique piece that wasn’t already hand stitched, then stitched various quilting motifs to fill in the backgrounds of the borders and the unstitched blocks. I still can’t figure out the connection of the horizontal angel in the waves with the other blocks…

Note: In the photo of the whole quilt, one of the borders is folded over the clothesline to prevent the quilt dragging on the ground, and the quilt is sideways on the clothesline too. It was a big quilt!
