    What a beautiful quilt! I was at Fabric Depot for the first time a couple of weeks ago - isn't it amazing! I think I'll have to go back again!

    What a perfect idea for creating a sampler of quilting designs for clients to choose from. Should garner a ton of interest in your booth.

    Red face Kona Modern quilts

    I love what you've done & I'm sure it will help in your booth as the quilting is fantastic.

    Great idea!

The creamy butter center was just perfect for showcase quilting.
    I had never been to Fabric Depot before....WOW! It was a bit overwhelming....there was so much of EVERYTHING there. If you are ever in the Portland area you should stop by there.

    I am trying to decide which color of binding to use...the charcoal black color to frame it all in...a pretty stripe? The same blue color as the border? HMMMM?

    I used two layers of batting....legacy 80/20 and hobbs poly down.
    I hope you all have a blessed day!

    Charsima, Honestly once again you prove that you could make a burlap bag look fabulous! Gorgeous quilt and amazing quilting. By "cheater" fabric, do you mean that pattern is the fabric? If so, you made it look quilted!

    Re: Fabric Depot: It's my FAVORITE place to buy quilt fabrics other than a wholesale fabric store on Harry Hines Blvd which I frequent when I'm in Dallas. The Yard Sale room at Fabric Depot in back and out in the yard when the weather is nice are my favorite. I begin there and then look at the other fabrics on the main floor (that have been on sale for 35% off when I've been there). I went during the quilt show a few weekends ago and bought waaaaay too much fabric.

    Another question: Why did you use two layers of batting? I've been wondering how to make my quilts THICKER without using poly batting.

    I like DogHouseMom's idea of striped binding to go with circles. Fabric hunting time...love it.

    Absolutely stunning!! How about pulling the purple or lavender from the circles to use for the border? You can send it to me when you're done showing it! OMG!! My colors and everything!!

    As usual, you did a beautiful job. I love the way you are able to show so many patterns of your FMQ. It doesn't look like a cheater--just a gorgeous quilt!
