    Linda sent me a few quilts for LAQ. (1-4)
    She really gave me creative freedom to quilt how I wanted....

    I loved the leaves in the batik border...so I carried that theme through-out the rest of the quilt. Theme :leaves

    So in the Charisma Curls...I quilted different leaves throughout and then worked the curls around them..then I quilted a little four patch of leaves in the center of each star. The border is a feather made from oak leaves....Linda pieces beautiful..her fabric choices were gorgeous!

    I quilted everything freehand on my 26 Innova. I used hobbs poly down batting.

    Thanks for looking!

    Time for true confessions. Every time I see your posts of quilts you've finished. I say to myself...Self, do I dare look to see what I know I can't do? and I say Yep better look!

    You are just amazing w/your quilting. I try to look at my little tops and say, "How would Charismah quilt this?" and I usually end up just doing sid or ugly swuiggles...

    You have such an eye for determining how quilts need to be quilted to show off the blocks. Charismah Corner...wonderful talent too.

    Again..wonderful quilting for a beatuiful top!

    Thank you so much! That is such a nice compliment that you would wonder how I would quilt a project!
