    Charisma's Chain of Faith

    Hi everyone...I have been gone for a few weeks..Family emergency.
    But I am back in the saddle..errrr I mean quilting machine...trying to get ready for our local quilt show. I am the featured quilter.....and I now have dates....June 22-23 Ephrata High school Gym. IN case any of you happen to be in town....I would love to meet you!

    This is my own quilt.....and a friend of mine pieced it for me....I just really wanted this quilt for myself...with a couple Blush jelly rolls I have been hoarding....and I loved the pattern..the name of the pattern ect.
    It' a free pattern from the moda bake shop.

    I wanted to make the chain pop..because I made the mistake of keeping the red stirps in..and they compete to much with the chain..so I thought I could make a difference with the quilting. In the end I love the quilt...red strips and all.... and I love the spiral type flowers...it's the first time I have done those...and I love them! They are fun and cute!

    Thanks so much for looking!

    That is beautiful! I've wanted to do that pattern, but wasn't sure how to plan out the colors to get the look I want. It looks like all of the corner squares and the 4 square have the same print. Any other recommendations in the color layout now that you've done one?

    Is this a judged show? If it is - you will win for sure! Your quilting is outstanding! I love this quilt. Been seeing a lot of teal with red- must be the new thing. There is one in my future, haha. Good luck with the show.

    Great quilt and quilting! I am thinking I should have kept my Spiralgraph that I got one Christmas as a child. Think of the quilting design possibilities!

    I love everything about it. The colors are beautiful together and I love the back and the beautiful quilting. A winner for sure in my judgement. Praying everything is ok with the emergency now. I missed you but knowing you have a family there is always somthing you take you away from everyday duties. Glad to see you back with the beautiful quilts to show for your work.

    I think by keeping the red strips in, it added contrast to your quilt. Have no regrets! Your quilt pattern, color choices and layout as well as your quilting are all beautiful. I wish you great success at your show. Thanks for sharing.

    Beautifully done Charisma. You sure are a natural at this. Doesn't seem like it's been that long since you started - right? Amazing!

    Beautiful fabrics and I'm glad you kept the red in. Gives it a nice pop. The piecing is beautiful and what can I say about the quilting? Gorgeous, as always.

    I love the red, too... there's just enough to make it pop! Of course, the spectacular quilting doesn't hurt either... LOL! I've looked at this pattern a couple of times, too, but wasn't sure it would turn out so hot... I stand corrected! This is beautiful! Kudos! And congrats on your quilt show spotlight! Hope all is better in your neck of the woods now. Keep on keepin' on!
