Community Quilt 312

27 02 2017

Another scrappy quilt. The ‘busy-ness’ of the fabrics meant a simple stitching motif, so I chose ‘open headbands‘, which is a muscle-memory motif for me — I think I could do it in my sleep!

Community Quilt 311

Another predominantly blue scrappy quilt. I stitched ‘piano keys’ in the ‘Chinese coin’ strips, a medium stipple in the backgrounds for the flowers, and a large meandering stipple in the border.

Community Quilt 310

How to quilt this blue scrappy quilt? The squares were easy — a cathedral window motif, which I echoed in the light blue border too. For the large setting triangles (in navy), I free-motion stitched a large feather motif.

Community Quilt 309

16 02 2017

For this BIG quilt (yes, I had to hang it sideways on the clothesline to take the pictures!), I started by stitching in the ditch around all the elements. I didn’t want to overquilt it because the design needed to take centre stage, so I left many areas unquilted. However, I did a cathedral windows motif in the small squares, piano keys in the border, some pseudo snowflakes and a sun in the space behind the trees, and some wavy lines for clouds behind the house.

Community Quilt 308

This simple scrappy quilt had lots of ‘busy’ fabrics, so I just quilted it with a large meandering stipple.

Community Quilt 307

7 02 2017

I liked the shadow-box effect of these quilt blocks, and the colours used. To counter the squares and rectangles, I took my inspiration from the circles in the outer border fabric and quilted double circles (smaller circle inside a large one) over the entire quilt, using a peach-coloured thread.

Community Quilt 306

7 02 2017

I decided to quilt this scrappy quilt with a blue/green thread that matched the colour of the inner border—I was pleased with how well it matched the rest of the quilt as well. To counterbalance the geometric shapes, I stitched a squared-off arc motif, which is a variation of the open headband motif I use quite often.
