Quilt Top Notes/Techniques

The Canberra Modern Quilt Guild sponsored a challenge for our display at the Canberra Craft and Quilt Fair in August 2015. The theme was a monochrome (black, white and gray) “Modern Traditional” mini quilt 24″ square. I used QuiltSmart’s Little Lone Star fusible interfacing to make scrappy gradient lone star blades.

Quilting Notes/Techniques

I drew a full star out using the Clover water erasable pen. I used two layers of bleached cotton batting. The basket weave fill is based on Margaret Solomon Gunn’s grid based fills article in Machine Quilting Unlimited July 2015.

White/black Gutterman 50 wt cotton thread and dove gray Rasant cotton poly thread for basket weave fill.
