    Kona Modern quilts.....by Charisma

    Well I don't have a lot of time for piecing......but I love LAQing. ( I think you all know that) So I have been taking "Cheater" prints and making quilts.
    I wanted some new samples for my booth ( next show is MQX....YAY!) .....as soon as I saw this at Fabric Depot in Portland..I knew what I could do with it.....I had a hard time choosing which color way I wanted.....in the end I chose this one. 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!

    Agree ... perfect way to showcase your work for a booth. If I had to choose a binding I would go with a stripe like is in the circles ... but it would have to be a bias binding to make best effect of the strips.

    Very pretty!!

    AND ... a tax write off
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    Well Charisma you’ve managed to pull me out of my persistent state of lurking with your once again extraordinary quilting artistry! My daughters & I comment frequently that when we grow up we want to quilt “just like Charisma”. Thank you for the many times you’ve shared your beautiful work over the years & I’ve failed to comment. Please know that my family and I greatly enjoy your work and appreciate your willingness to share with those in this very special community.
    Blessings,
    Happy Camper

    I was just thinking like DogHouseMom that the stripe like around the circles would be perfect.

    WOW , You make even a cheater cloth look amazing! A fabulous way to show case your quilting! The back is just as beautiful as the front.. Not sure which side would be up on any given day.
