One of the members, Amy (Crafty Dame), came up with the design, several more members pieced blocks (in fact we ended up with enough blocks for two quilts), Amy pieced the top, and Laurraine (Patchwork Pottery) pieced the back and sandwiched it and handed it off to me.
I quilted it up, outlining all the stars with matching thread,
and doing some echo quilting inside the stars,
then flipped it over and with grey in the bobbin and a rainbow variegated thread on top, stitched sweeping curves and a sprinkling of stars from the back,
|Rainbow thread, stitched from the back, to add some subtle colour to the back of the quilt|
jumping over the the pieced stars so they didn't end up with grey stitching through them. I was very please with how it turned out, even though there wasn't a feather in it!
I handed it back to Laurraine who did a wonderful job of binding it in rainbow colours and inserted 3D star points to mimic the wonky stars. Pop over to Laurraine's blog to see the amazing result.
I'm working on another collaborative quilt, too. We're doing a Round Robin at my other guild, BMQG, and we're down to the last border! It is pretty exciting knowing I'm going to be getting my quilt back at our next meeting!
|this was my starting off block, way back in September - can't wait to see how it looks now!|
Stay tuned - there will be another post tomorrow - it's reveal day for the Balance theme in the Tangled Textiles group!
