Community Quilt 310

27 02 2017

How to quilt this blue scrappy quilt? The squares were easy — a cathedral window motif, which I echoed in the light blue border too. For the large setting triangles (in navy), I free-motion stitched a large feather motif.

Hi Carolyn

I do the cathedral window motif (including in the border) totally free-motion. It’s a bit wonky, but the overall effect is still there, and it’s very quick to do once you get the rhythm of the ‘s’ curves happening. Details on how I do it are here: https://rhondabracey.com/2014/01/19/easy-cathedral-windows-quilting-motif/

Oh WOW ! I never even thought about them being an S curve! LOL. I’m actually doing something similar on HST. But I don’t think of them as S curves.
