Community Quilt 333

26 06 2017

How to quilt this very geometric and colourful scrappy quilt? I thought about straight line ‘modern’ quilting, then decided to do a variation of ‘graffiti’ quilting. I started in the centre with large overlapping spirals, then a whole slew of flame-style stitching, finishing at the outer edges with a open headband motif. I used a variegated thread in blues, greens, yellows, and purples to match the vibrant colours of the squares.

Threads used:

  • Top: Superior King Tut ‘Cairo’ (40 wt, cotton, colour 932)
  • Bottom: Fil-Tec Magna Glide Classic pre-wound bobbin (lead gray)
