Community Quilt 286

1 08 2016

The last quilt of the latest batch of community quilts — a lovely bright ‘I spy’ quilt made up of fruit and vegetable fabrics.

I quilted it with a continuous line motif based on an inner spiral and outer ‘fingers’, using a variegated thread in yellow, green and purple.

Community Quilt 285

30 07 2016

This was one of the quilt tops I made on our quilt retreat weekend and donated to the Community Quilts program. They supplied the batting and backing fabric — I did the rest. In keeping with some of the floral fabrics, I did a variation on the open headband motif, adding ‘petals’ to the large arcs.

Community Quilt 281

30 07 2016

Another small baby quilt likely to go to the state mortuary or the maternity hospital. Again, a simple stipple to hold the layers together was all that was required.

Community Quilt 280

30 07 2016

I made these two small quilt tops on my quilt retreat weekend. As they will likely go to the state mortuary for stillborn babies, only a simple flannel backing and simple stitching enough to hold the layers together was required.
