Community Quilt 370

14 02 2018

This quilt came all done except for the quilting — it was bound with those lovely prairie points, so all I had to do was quilt it. As usual, I started by stitching in the ditch around all the main elements and the applique pieces to stabilise the quilt. Then I did a meandering stipple in the backgrounds of the outer blocks (with a large stipple in the border, in blue thread), and vertical wonky lines (no rulers) in the backgrounds of the centre blocks. To keep the edge detail in place and prevent it from folding backwards or forwards, I topstitched about a quarter inch from the edge.
