Community Quilt 245

This cute panel quilt of Australian animals and birds was easy to quilt — it was small, had obvious motifs to stitch around, and obvious designs in the borders to follow. I think I finished it in under an hour.

Community Quilt 244

Another BIG quilt, this time a jelly roll strip quilt in lovely blue batiks.

How to quilt it? To counter the straight lines of the strips, I decided on an old favourite — an all-over spiral design. I think I can do that one in my sleep! I left the purple border unstitched, and in the blue border I stitched Vs/Ws, but instead of points, I squared off the bases to match the design in the fabric.
