    Black , white & green all over GFG....quilted by Charisma

    This is by far the most modern GFG I have ever seen. Bookworm did a great job peicing (all by hand of course)! She knew specifically how she wanted it quilted ...so that was easy for me..hehe.

    It has all the good ingrediants, WOW, sparkly fabric, swirly fabrics, nice colors and clearly a lot of love!

    Thanks so much Bookworm!

    Great job on quilting it without detracting from the pattern. I like how the lime green plays against the black and grey backgrounds and how the white path makes each flower pop. I have to agree that it has quite a modern look. Thanks for sharing.

    What a wonderful modern twist to an old classic pattern. I love the little shots of color here and there, and the fabric with the lanky cats just gives it a little extra for me. Wonderful job complimenting it with the quilting Charisma and Bookworm was very wise in choosing her quilting designs. It all comes together for one spectacular quilt.

    I love GFG quilts , and I am always intriged as to how a Long Arm Pro would quilt them ... First my hats off to the piecer, what patience to take on this hand work! and your color/fabric selection puts a modern twist to this classic pattern.
    Charisma .. great quilting you certainly did excellent work on this beauty. You did this one proud!

    I like the 3D flower in the middle of each block very creative, like the occasional embellishment of color on random petals. Your quilting looks great too.

    I'm nearing the end of a GFG, all being done by hand. I've got 15 flowers to attach & finish borders, but mine is scrappy. This is a remarkable job, design, piecing & quilting. You both did this one proud!

    Wow, that is quite different but really quite striking. I love lime green. Great color combo and wonderful quilting as usual!

    I can't wait to see your scrappy. I love this pattern.



    All: Charisma does a really really good job adding to the piecing and complementing it with out her quilting taking over.

    Everything old is new again! I love the teeny pops of color... they're just the right amount of accent. And your quilting? Fabulous! All-in-all, this is a stunner! Kudos to the two of you!!!

    Beautiful. Interesting that she hand pieced and then chose to machine quilt it.
