    Amy Butler trees.....by Charisma

    Well I have this obsession with Amy Butler fabrics...every new line she comes out with I buy....I know. It's pretty scary then I hoard them for my "special projects"...it's a sickness having this haording disease ( only when it comes to fabric) I think I am among my supporters. LOL

    Anyway these trees I just knew would make a good "cheater" quilt. Love the pink and red blossoms. The funky green color....yep.....just had to have.
    I thought I could do some "fancy" custom quilting...then decided I really need to showcase some all-over type designs....so I used Clam shells from my loricle templates and quilted custom borders.
    I hope you all have a blessed day.

    Charismah the way you quilted this is pure genious. I would not have considered an all over clam shell but it is the perfect compliment to this fabric. What you did in the borders is nothing short of pure "charismalishiousness".

    You always seem to know what kind of quilting will enhance the pattern or the fabric in a quilt! You amaze me! I love looking at pictures of your work.

    I most admit I find them pretty hard to resist also. She has a real knack for interesting patterns and colour combinations. I bet if she saw your quilt and your quilting that Amy would say you have a real knack for bringing out the best in her fabrics.

    The clam shell is a great compliment to the fabric -- did you do one or 2 layers of batting (the clam shells look extra poofed). Great job!!

    Just one layer of hobbs poly down.
    Hobbs always gives just the right amount of "poof" in my opinion.

    I really love the "puffiness" of this quilt. Would you mind sharing your batting secrets? Yolanda Wood River

    Another WOW! When I see these whole cloth sort of quilts you're doing, I have to wonder why any of us would keep on piecing - then I remember....at least for myself, I can't do this fantastic quilting that you do which is what makes them stunning! Maybe some day...toward that goal I should get off the computer and be in front of my machine
