Circle of Friends

This quilt was made by Margaret, a local teacher, quilter, and embroider.  She sells kits for this quilt.

We decided on a simple custom design for the quilting, as we didn’t want to quilt over the appliquéd children fabric.  I quilted a smallish meandering around the appliqué with a spiral in the centre of each motif. I like this because it emphasises the fabric.  I crosshatched the pieced border, and quilted a freehand allover open curl pattern on the remainder.
