Lindyline wanted me to quilt her IRR quilt.....I was so flattered but I felt the pressure for this quilt (not her pressuring me) because so many people were invested in this quilt.

When you have so many people invested well..that's all the more to please.
Linda had told me she liked so many of my regular designs..feathers, Charisma curls....ect.

Parts of this quilt is flourishy ...so I knew how to quilt those areas ...but I knew I needed to add something more.
In the outer border I added bamboo....I love the way it turned out...what is more asian than bamboo? It's natural and earthy and I love to add that type of element. ( I seem to always add leaves...flowers..ferns...nature is good ;-) )

I outlined the gold border, then put a feather in the flower border...the two small borders on either side got big pebbles...I did ruler work on the black border surrounding the center medallian.....what a FABULOUS quilt! All involved did a wonderful job....I hope you are all happy with the end result.

I quilted everything freehan on my 26 INNOVA...I used hobbs polydown batting.

Thanks for looking.

Your quilting reflects the tone of the quilt so well.
