    Diamonds are forever.....Quilted by Charisma

    Prairie quilter made this quilt from scraps..isn't it lovely?
    It's a wedding gift.
    Isn't the name appropriate? I thought it was.
    Prairie requested feathers in all the background areas...
    Then I quilted swirly ribbons in the diamonds..in most of them the ribbons form a heart...I like that nice little detail. Of course I finished it off with a big swirly feather to bring it all together.

    Thanks so much for looking!

    If the recipients don't absolutely LOVE it, they don't understand what they are looking at. It's an absolute heirloom.

    When life gives you scraps, make quilts!

    That is a string pattern. If you don't find it, PM me, as I am planning to recreate it.
