Community Quilt 264

18 04 2016

Such a very simple quilt of 6-inch squares, but with a variety of fabrics that ranged from heavy-weight cottons (similar to gabardines) to very light-weight cottons (similar to lawn) and everything in between. To stabilise it, I stitched in the ditch around each square, then because the puffiness was very uneven owing to the different weights of the fabrics, I decided to do a checkerboard pattern to sew the puffiness into submission!

No rulers were harmed — in fact, none were used. All the ‘straight’ lines were done free motion, so while the stitching lines might look even at a distance, up close many are quite wonky. And I’m OK with that.
