    Metallic Twirls.....quilted by Charisma

    I quilt samples for my LQS.
    They offer a club ( for the last few years) called the "international Mystery" club. They tour different countries every month and they get a mystery project. I think they experience different foods and fun facts of each country every month. But the members don't know from month to month which country they are visiting until they arrive. Anyway it's a very popular club and full every year.

    I get to quilt all the samples..so even though I am not part of the club I get to see the quilt (usually) before the club meets. SO I have to keep it a secret until after the reveal. Isn't that fun?

    So this is one from their International tour....from last month. I don't know which country it is from..LOL I forgot.
    I got a package of three at one time..and didn't keep track. It's difficult to see in the photos but all the materials is metallic....so I quilted with a metallic thread. Feathers, curls, leaves and continuous curves. Great finish.

    Thanks for looking! Have a great day!

    Beautiful! I bet it is from France as the border material is about France. Love your curls.

    Nice quilt and great quilting as usual. Sounds like a fun group. Do they actually visit these countries or just do the history on them?

    Wish there was a quilt like that around here, sounds like it would be a lot of fun. Isn't it amazing that a relatively simple block can be so beautiful with sparkling fabrics. I remember being at a quilt meeting with Mary Ellen Hopkins as the guest speaker - she said "Take a simple block, but use beautiful fabric to make beautiful quilts, letting the fabrics do the work."
