Community Quilt 250

14 02 2016

I know these quilts are a great way to use up scraps, but they can be the devil to quilt, especially if the person making the top hasn’t flattened out the 8-way joins in the middle of each ‘circle’. The big bump of fabric can break a needle and throw out your timing really easily (a $100 repair at least). Fortunately, the joins on this one weren’t too bad.

I did a large all-over meandering stipple so that I could deliberately avoid the 8-way joins, and because the colour etc. were so busy no-one would be likely to notice the quilting anyway!
