Community Quilt 353

15 10 2017

Despite its simplicity, this blue, grey, and purple quilt is quite dramatic. How to quilt it? I started by stitching in the ditch around all the main elements. Next, I stitched a curved matrix design in the all the dark square centres, and a large ‘u’ motif in the dark borders surrounding the light squares. I kept the border simple by just stitching a single line half an inch from the main quilt top.
