    Forever Garden Quilt

    We did this for a DF we will be visiting in NY in May. The photos were all images I took with equipment bought thru my friend. I designed the quilt around the photos. Charismah did the fantastic quilting on this to augment the photos. Hope you like it.

    This is maybe the coolest flower quilt I have ever had to pleasure of seeing. The whole concept of showing the flowers and duplicating them then matching them to color and strength and then quilting in movement and flow. Wow. Really wonderful idea's and outstanding outcome.

    It's simply a fantastic quilt! So creative. Please explain the concept of the black polka-dotted sashing. What were you trying to achieve? Why not just the green or white? These little details are what makes you artists.

    Talk about flowers popping right off the page at me. It's just beautiful. Your DF is going to love this. I would love to see a picture of the back of the quilt.

    I actually put in the small black sashing to divide the four block from the photo as I did not want colors running together and losing the effect of flower photo.

    Your quilt is one of the most vibrant and stunning floral pieces I've seen in a long, long time! The quilting really set it off, and it almost feels 3D to me. Lovely!!
