Community Quilt 369

30 01 2018

[I spent a long weekend at a private retreat a few weeks ago, which is when I quilted this quilt (and 7 others). Therefore the photos aren’t as good because they were taken indoors, and I don’t have information on the threads used.]

This was a BIG quilt, made up of friendship blocks all signed and dated from around 2005 to 2007. For simplicity, I just decided to stitch in the ditch around all the blocks and their main elements, and then stitched a meandering stipple in the border.

I love the crispness of red, black and white, and these matching fabrics captured that perfectly. After stitching in the ditch around each block, I stitched open headbands in red thread in every second row, then a meandering stipple in black in the alternate row. I stitched the border with a meandering stipple in red.

The busy-ness of the fabrics in this quilt made me decide to do a simple edge-to-edge motif — this time overlapping spirals, a motif I think I can do in my sleep!

There was a LOT of white space in this big quilt. After stitching in the ditch around all the little squares, I then quilted it using my variation on McTavishing. It took a few hours…

I quilted corresponding motifs in each square to match the fabric used (where possible) — so circles/bubbles/pebbles in the squares with spots and dots, scallops in those fabrics, etc.

For this quilt, I left the plain beige fabric unquilted. In the centre of each block I stitched a curved matrix motif, and in the surrounding squares, cathedral windows.

This quilt was similar to #360, but this time I quilted ‘cathedral windows‘ in the small squares, and piano keys in the border.
