    Feathered Diamonds......by Charisma

    Well this happens to be another quilt that I traded for.....Mary had several quilt tops to part with...so I quilted one for her in exchange for this beauty! So this is all mine!
    I had many ideas for it....in the end I just practiced a few techniques...which is why LAQ's are always looking for tops. But I love it so much...that it is going on my bed for now.

    Thanks so much!

    Oh I used two layers of batting. I used a bamboo and a layer of poly down.
    I also used a creamy yellow thread for quilting.

    Thanks.
    Charisma

    Outstanding. Gorgeous colors, piecing and quilting. I love the roses. It would go on my bed too, don't blame you for laying claim on that one.

    I can see why you would want this one for your own. Love the feathers in the diamonds.

    Just love this. I love the quilting you do. You seem to keep outdoing yourself. Your friend should be proud of her work also.
