    Ligia sent me her IRR ( international Round Robin)

    That means that several QB members worked on this quilt throughout this year....so I will be the lucky one to get to send it back to her! However, with so many people working on..so much investment..I hope everyone likes what I did!

    This was fun....she sent me two links ...and told me she liked this style of quilting:

    http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-156538-1.htm

    http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-152852-1.htm

    So I wanted to incorporate the sweet pea design and feathers....with Charisma Curls. Fans...and continuous curves.

    The sweet pea vines are in all of the snow ball blocks....outlined with continuous curves. I put Charisma Curls in all the purple background areas. The feather is in the outside edge...fans petals in the inside egde of the zig-zag design...swirls actually fill in the zig-zag area.

    All together it all came out beautifully!


    I quilted everything freehand on my 26 INNOVA. I used Hobbs polydown batting.

    Thanks for looking.

    Wow - fantastic quilt! Love the fabrics used; the folks who worked on this one did a great job. Each round works beautifully with the ones before it. The quilting enhances the top wonderfully.

    I watched this quilt during the round robin. The center was a real WOW. It grew into a super WOW! All of the people involved with this did a beautiful job. And the quilting is just stunning.

    That is one of the most extravagantly beautiful quilts I've ever seen. Sizzling colors, innovative design, gorgeous appliqué and piecing, and sensational quilting! BRAVO!

    I know you are very busy but would appreciate you giving me a few a few lines. Can you tell me why you chose Innova over other machines? Currently have a Gammill vision but would like to upgrade to a larger computerized model and looking at the Innova due to price. Any idea how the Inn ova stacks up to the Gammill? Sewed on one at a workshop at MQX in Rhode Island. Is the table steady, and does not vibrate? How easy is tension adjustment? Did you think about computerization? Any thought you can give would be greatly appreciated.
