    AKbelles sent me this quilt for LAQ>

    I think it is no secret that I LOVE Kaffe.

    But I have to say this quilt kind of stumped me?

    Most obw have a floral or something for me to really make it lavish and scrolly.....but this one didn't have that feeling. Sometimes i make things so hard on myself. After looking at it for a couple of weeks I thought "all over swirl" It will keep with the movement of the quilt and not take away from it. I quilted Charisma Curls in the border. Love the finish!
    Thanks AK!

    I quilted this freehand on my 26 INNOVA. I used hobbs polydown batting.

    I used black 70wt thread in the top and a gray super bob in the bottom. Thanks for looking.

    I'm not usually a big fan of Kaffe or Amy Butler but this is a great quilt and your swirls and curls are perfect for it!
    Congratulations to both of you, excellent work!

    The allover swirl looks perfect, I like that quilting treatment on many quilts.
