Community Quilt 275

26 06 2016

I really liked this quilt — the design, the colours. I think it’s a variation on these quilts: https://rhondabracey.com/2015/09/07/baby-quilt-kaffe-fassett-fabrics/ and https://rhondabracey.com/2015/09/28/baby-quilt-with-tonga-treasures-fabric/, but instead of using charm squares, the quilt maker used half-square triangles inside each block. It’s very effective.

How to quilt it? I decided to do something I’ve never tried before — triangular spirals! It’s just a spiral motif, but with three corners. I liked the final effect, so might use this one again. No rulers were used — all free-motion quilting.

Beautifully done! Such a great pieced pattern, too. This stitching motif, along with the “box spiral”, is one of my faves, too!

I like that quilt, too. Nice layout and the quilting really works.
