Community Quilt 271

26 06 2016

This was a BIG quilt, with the potential for lots of puckering with all those bias edges in the octagons. I started by stitching in the ditch around the main elements, then stitching echoed 4-petal flowers in the white spaces. I free-motion stitched BIG spirals in the green areas (thank goodness for quilting gloves and my Sweet Sixteen’s quilting table and extensions, and my bungee cord system!).

For the border, I stitched flame-like motifs, all in the same green thread. The green looks stunning on the black, although the picture of the border below is a bit washed out and doesn’t show the contrast very well.
