    Ligia sent me her IRR ( international Round Robin)

    That means that several QB members worked on this quilt throughout this year....so I will be the lucky one to get to send it back to her! However, with so many people working on..so much investment..I hope everyone likes what I did!

    This was fun....she sent me two links ...and told me she liked this style of quilting:

    http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-156538-1.htm

    http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-152852-1.htm

    So I wanted to incorporate the sweet pea design and feathers....with Charisma Curls. Fans...and continuous curves.

    The sweet pea vines are in all of the snow ball blocks....outlined with continuous curves. I put Charisma Curls in all the purple background areas. The feather is in the outside edge...fans petals in the inside egde of the zig-zag design...swirls actually fill in the zig-zag area.

    All together it all came out beautifully!


    I quilted everything freehand on my 26 INNOVA. I used Hobbs polydown batting.

    Thanks for looking.

    Wow - fantastic quilt! Love the fabrics used; the folks who worked on this one did a great job. Each round works beautifully with the ones before it. The quilting enhances the top wonderfully.
