Community Quilt 305

1 01 2017

This small, colourful, and very geometric quilt needed something to soften the hard edges, so I quilted it using the curvaceous open headband motif in a bright yellow thread.

Community Quilt 304

1 01 2017

Another big quilt made with ‘busy’ fabrics. To quilt it, I stitched in the ditch around all the elements in the blocks, then did cathedral windows in the small 2″-square internal borders. I did a large meandering stipple in the main border.

Community Quilt 303

How to quilt this scrappy quilt made with very ‘busy’ fabrics? I decided on a simple cathedral window motif for each of the squares in the main part of the quilt and the border, using a variegated green and yellow thread.

Community Quilt 302

1 01 2017

This was a really big quilt. How to quilt it? I decided on an all-over motif, a variation of open headbands, with ‘petals’ to emulate flowers. I used a purple, yellow, and cream variegated thread, which seemed to work well with the pinky-mauve main colour in this quilt.

Community Quilt 301

27 12 2016

This scrappy quilt had so many different fabrics and colours that any quilting was going to get lost in it, so I opted to do a large meandering stipple to hold the layers together.

Community Quilt 300

27 12 2016

Number 300! 300 quilts quilted for the Western Australian Quilters Association Community Quilts program in the 54 months since June 2012!

This 300th quilt used fabrics in dark jewel tones, and looked to me like a disappearing nine-patch. I decided to quilt it in spirals to counterbalance the geometric nature of the blocks, using a variegated purple thread.

Community Quilt 299

27 12 2016

How to quilt this blue and brown quilt? Well, the star blocks gave me a clue. After stitching in the ditch around the main elements, I stitched big wonky stars in the two brown blocks, and more in the centres of some of the other blocks too.
