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.

Community Quilt 305

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

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.

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.
