Community Quilt 318

25 04 2017

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.
