    Robert sent me this quilt along with the butterfly quilt I posted a few days ago....It's nice to have some small projects to fit in between some of the heavier projects...so I kind of just work on them as I go when there are no deadlines.

    Robert gave me freedom to quilt as I wanted...of course you have seen many times before I love making these OBW blocks into flowers..it's always so much fun and creative...so once again I did that here.

    Add on some swirls and VIOLA!


    I used hobbs polydown batting and quilted this on my 18 INNOVA.

    Thanks for looking.

    I like the look of the OBW quilt. The dark diamonds inbetween really make your turning the blocks into flowers stand out. A truly beautiful quilt with great quilting. Carol

    Wowza, Wowza, Wowza. I have just started at it for the last 5 minutes. IT IS SO AMAZING. I love it Charisma. I really do. Now I can't wait until I get the Romantic Paris quilt to you. It is going to be a masterpiece.
    Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.
    I LOVE IT.
    I forgot to tell you it was all done (except the back) with outdated samples of "snowbird" fabrics. I only had to pay for the backing......

    Those colors are FABULOUS! Gorgeous! The setting with diamonds and the variety of quilting in the blocks is so interesting, clever, and fun. The quilting and chocolate sashing are just beautiful! Luscious!!! Love the back too.

    I usually don't care for OBW's, but this one is extremely pretty, and made more so by your quilting, Charisma- beautiful job by both of you-
