    "Bird Haven" quilted by Charisma

    http://www.quiltingboard.com/picture...a-t162856.html

    The above is the link to the pictures Charisma posted when she finished quilting my quilt. Thought I'd post pics after I did the binding and added the embellishments, i.e., fabric ribbons, ruched flowers and buds, and of course the label.

    I made this for my daughter. In her home, she has one bedroom that is decorated in antiques and this will be a wall hanging. She doesn't know I've finished it (or even started on it for that matter), so it will be a surprise when I show up with it when I fly to California for Thanksgiving.

    Charisma is a dream and I can't thank her enough for her beautiful work!

    Your work is beautiful. I know your daughter will love it.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    This is absolutely beautiful. What a wonderful surprise this will be for your daughter. She will definitely treasure it. The piecing and quilting on this is superb. Great job by everyone. Thank you for sharing.

    The quilt is stunning and of course, the quilting further compliments it.
