Community Quilt 297

21 11 2016

How to quilt this beige jelly roll quilt? The simplest thing would’ve been straight lines to emphasise the strips, but I wanted to do more than that. Instead, I stitched an all-over ‘square’ stipple. I like doing this motif, but it takes a long time — I think it took about 3 hours to quilt this quilt (no rulers).

I think this little quilt took me longer to quilt than some of the big ones! I started by stitching in the ditch around everything, then echo stitched around the border applique, followed by straight-ish piano keys lines from the echo line to the border’s seams. I McTavished the centre area.

How to quilt this very geometric quilt? I wanted to do something round to counteract the points, but also wanted to incorporate some of the triangular shapes. I made up a new motif that I’ll call ‘Windmill’, ‘cos the ‘blades’ are shaped like those on windmills seen across the farmlands of Australia. It starts with a central arc, surrounded by the windmill blades, then a really big arc to encompass the motif.

A baseball fan is going to love this quilt! The fabrics were so busy, I just went with a simple large meandering stipple in red.

I hadn’t touched my quilting machine (Sweet Sixteen) for several weeks, so my first foray back into Community Quilts was a simple ‘muscle memory’ motif that I’ve done many times before.

I’m not really a fan of these colours, but together I thought they worked really well. To keep with the simple shapes, I decided to quit vertically in the three strips on the sides, and horizontally for the three middle strips. Each line is about 1 inch apart. Yes, I used my Line Tamer ruler for this!

To counterbalance the rectangular shapes in this quilt, I decided to quilt large circles with a smaller inner circle coming off at a tangent.
