    A Crazy Quilt.....Quilted by Charisma

    Carol sent this AMAZING! Crazy quilt.
    Carol requested leafy vines in the sashing and outer boarder...basically to hold it together.

    I LOVE this quilt! It is just beautiful. All the beauty is a result of all Carols hard work..I didn't do anything...some slight quilting...just to showcase her work.

    Do you think she will notice if it doesn't arrive back home?

    She used a black velvet backing ....and the embroidery, beading and embellishmenst on this are just to die for ..honestly!
    My 8 year old daughter is in love with this quilt.....she keeps looking at it and sayiong "Oh mom look at this!"...."Oh did you see this?"
    There was no complaining when I asked her to hold it for me to attach the binding..LOL

    Thank You! Carol for giving us the oppotunity to work on YOUR masterpeice.

    That's beautiful. A really pretty crazy quilt has a lot of intricate work on it. I don't think my patience would hold out to do that. Anyone would love to have that.

    That's wonderful and you enhanced it perfectly. I'm much older than eight and I want to hold it, too.

    How inspiring. It makes me want to get my act together and get to work!
    Home is where the heart is, and a few scrappy quilts.

    What a spectacular work of art. I can only imagine how many hours went into this quilt. Crazy quilts are a favorite of mine.

    OMG, it is a masterpiece! I love crazy quilts, but my OCD and lack of imagination would never let me make one. Beautiful work, ladies.

    Crazy quilts have never been my favorites but occasionally one comes along that's a show stopper. This is definitely one of them. great work all around!
