    Kona Modern quilts.....by Charisma

    Well I don't have a lot of time for piecing......but I love LAQing. ( I think you all know that) So I have been taking "Cheater" prints and making quilts.
    I wanted some new samples for my booth ( next show is MQX....YAY!) .....as soon as I saw this at Fabric Depot in Portland..I knew what I could do with it.....I had a hard time choosing which color way I wanted.....in the end I chose this one. The creamy butter center was just perfect for showcase quilting.
    I had never been to Fabric Depot before....WOW! It was a bit overwhelming....there was so much of EVERYTHING there. If you are ever in the Portland area you should stop by there.

    I am trying to decide which color of binding to use...the charcoal black color to frame it all in...a pretty stripe? The same blue color as the border? HMMMM?

    I used two layers of batting....legacy 80/20 and hobbs poly down.
    I hope you all have a blessed day!

    Agree ... perfect way to showcase your work for a booth. If I had to choose a binding I would go with a stripe like is in the circles ... but it would have to be a bias binding to make best effect of the strips.

    Very pretty!!

    AND ... a tax write off
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.
