Community Quilt 322

To enhance the diagonal pattern of this quilt, I stitched straight lines every two diagonal rows, then stitched a large meandering stipple in the main border, leaving the pink and green borders unstitched.

How to quilt this ‘asterisk’ quilt? I started by stitching in the ditch around all the blocks and the asterisk elements (including their square centres), then did a small stipple in the background for each asterisk. I finished with a large stipple in the border and diagonal stitching in the small squares in the border. I left the asterisks, the green border, and the bars of solid colours unstitched.

I went back to one of my ‘muscle memory’ motifs for quilting this quilt — a flower variation of ‘open headbands‘. Instead of finishing the final arc with a curved arc, you hop back with little arcs that look like petals on a flower.

There were lots of very busy fabrics in this quilt, so I quilted it in an all-over motif — a meandering stipple, punctuated with circles. I repeated this motif in the pink border too, leaving the white border unstitched.

How to quilt this quilt? After stitching in the ditch along all seams, I tackled the small floral squares, stitching a fluid crosshatch in them. For the larger floral squares, I stitched free-form eight-petalled flowers, repeating this motif in the setting triangles. I left all the plain coloured sashing strips unquilted, and echo stitched a half inch inside the border.
