    QuiltQtrs sent me this quilt to long arm on my INNOVA. I did it all freehand..no computers or Pantos.

    She had specific instructions for most of the quilting. I hope I captured her vision.

    She wanted stoppling in the white, The two big circles to be feathered and and the design in the bear paws. I filled it in with swirls and then put a feathered border on for the finishing touch.

    I used a light weight thread as this is a wall hanging....Beautiful quilt...Fabulous peicing!

    Oh Charismah I think you did a wonderful job complimenting and enhancing this beautifully pieced quilt. I have never seen intertwined twin feather wreaths, what a great idea. Both piecer and quilter get standing ovations!!

    Thanks I am hoping Quiltqtrs likes it...she just wanted two wreaths...I thought since the circles were intertwined I should match that. Would be a great thing for a wedding or anniversay gift..don't you think?
