Community Quilts 445 to 452

3 03 2019

Here’s the latest batch of quilts I quilted for the West Australian Quilters Association’s Community Quilts program. The first three are from quilt tops I made in January, all from scraps, many of which came from offcuts of previous Community Quilts.

Community Quilts 423 to 431

5 12 2018

Another batch, most of which were done when I returned from my US trip. However, when I took photos of them, one of the settings on my camera must’ve been off as the photos came out very bleached. I’ve adjusted the brightness/contrast in my photo manipulation software, but the colours really don’t reflect the actual colours of the quilts. (I haven’t added this set to my Flickr page as I’m disappointed in the quality of the photos, and no longer have the quilts to retake photos from.)

Community Quilts 412 to 417

12 08 2018

Still busy with work, so while I’ve quilted some more quilts and taken photos of them, I only got around to processing the photos today and putting them up on this blog. Because I’ve forgotten what I did and what threads I used for most of them, I’ve put all into this one post. I’ve only made comments for any that were exceptional for some reason.

I used a Cindy Needham stencil to create the design for the empty blocks — a flower stencil, and then one of her universal stencils to create the stylised petals/leaves on the outside. The orange marks are quilters chalk, which will brush off over time, or wash out.

Community Quilts 396 to 411

15 07 2018

I’ve been busy with all sorts of things in the past couple of months, so while I’ve quilted 15 quilts and taken photos of them, it wasn’t until today that I got around to processing the photos and putting them up on this blog. Because I’ve forgotten what I did and what threads I used for most of them, I’ve put all into this one post. I’ve only made comments for any that were exceptional for some reason.

For this one, I used one of templates designed by Cindy Needham for the star pattern in the blocks.

I used more of Cindy Needham’s templates for the flower motif in the borders, and for the sweeping curves in the outer border. I then echoed the sweeping curves, crossing over them to create a ribbon effect.

This quilt was similar to #400 (above), with all that candlewicking. As with #400, I stitched around each of the main embroidery lines, then echoed them, then did MacTavishing in the blocks to make the embroidered areas ‘pop’.

Community Quilt 395

8 04 2018

I made this quilt top back in February, and got it back for quilting! The spots in many of the fabrics meant it was easy to decide a motif — large circles/bubbles/pebbles in the main top (in yellow thread), then a motif I made up in my head of odd-length ‘pipes’ ending in round shapes (bobble heads?). I quite like the effect of those bobble heads and will likely do them again. And yes, I just coined a name for that motif — ‘bobble head’. You heard it here first, folks!
