Community Quilt 251

14 02 2016

I liked the Asiatic (Japanese?) feel to this red, white, and blue quilt. But how to quilt it? I started by stitching in the ditch along the diagonals. Then stitched straight lines around the inner white squares, with arcs at each corner, thus creating little flower shapes.

For the large border, I emulated the fabric by stitching flames coming out from the inner blue border.
