Community Quilt 309

16 02 2017

For this BIG quilt (yes, I had to hang it sideways on the clothesline to take the pictures!), I started by stitching in the ditch around all the elements. I didn’t want to overquilt it because the design needed to take centre stage, so I left many areas unquilted. However, I did a cathedral windows motif in the small squares, piano keys in the border, some pseudo snowflakes and a sun in the space behind the trees, and some wavy lines for clouds behind the house.

This simple scrappy quilt had lots of ‘busy’ fabrics, so I just quilted it with a large meandering stipple.
