Community Quilt 261

13 04 2016

What a colourful quilt this was! I didn’t do any stitching in the ditch; instead, I started in the middle and worked my way out stitching circles inside circles with connecting loops in a bright orange thread.

Community Quilt 260

13 04 2016

My apologies for the washed out photos — this quilt was much brighter than it appears in these photos.

I started by stitching in the ditch around all the blocks, then around the big circles, segueing into petals around each one to create the illusion of a large flower or a sun. I repeated the petal/fire motif in the border, using a charcoal thread.
