    Natalie's Mystery Quilt...quilted by Charisma

    Natalie sent me this quilt for LAQ.
    I was stumped for a couple weeks. I couldn't think of how to quilt it. It was so soft and sweet ....all the beautiful 3 Sisters fabrics...I pulled it out ..studied it...thought about it.....studied it.

    Sometimes this happens to me....(well all the time)...usually on my own quilts...( well some of them).

    I knew I wanted to bring out her chain ..she had chosen a very light color that kind of blended in with her background color..I knew I could highlight those with quilting to make them stand out a bit more. I used Continuous Curves on teh chain...those petals or clam shells in the background....little feathers in each corner..block work.

    Natalie doesn't know the name of this pattern...it was a mystery quilt she made years ago and didn't love it until now..YAY!

    Thanks for looking! We apprecaite that!
