    AKbelles sent me this quilt for LAQ>

    I think it is no secret that I LOVE Kaffe.

    But I have to say this quilt kind of stumped me?

    Most obw have a floral or something for me to really make it lavish and scrolly.....but this one didn't have that feeling. Sometimes i make things so hard on myself. After looking at it for a couple of weeks I thought "all over swirl" It will keep with the movement of the quilt and not take away from it. I quilted Charisma Curls in the border. Love the finish!
    Thanks AK!

    I quilted this freehand on my 26 INNOVA. I used hobbs polydown batting.

    I used black 70wt thread in the top and a gray super bob in the bottom. Thanks for looking.

    I'm not usually a big fan of Kaffe or Amy Butler but this is a great quilt and your swirls and curls are perfect for it!
    Congratulations to both of you, excellent work!

    Nicely done! Not stepping over previous stitching is so hard on those busy quilts and you did a great job!
