    Riverton quilter sent me a few quilts for LAQ. I love scrappy quilts and this one is no exception.
    It is so warm and inviting. :)

    She asked me to bring out the squares and pinwheels because she felt they weren't as noticeable because it is a scrappy quilt. I outlined the pinwheels...and put little feather plumes on the squares....I also put wavy lines in those colored blades to soften them a bit. I filled in all the rest of the HST with "Charisma Curls".

    The border I filled with a feather because she likes feathers but has never had one quilted on her quilts......WHAT??!! That is a travesty! Someone who LIKES feathers doesn't have one?? So I fixed that! I love the finished quilt..the back says it all!

    The colors are actually much warmer in person....but to get the proper lighting for quilting..had to sacrifice the color of the quilt.

    I used Hobbs poly down batting.

    I quilted this freehand on my INNOVA>

    Thanks for looking.

    Charisma, your quilting looks as lovely on the back as the front! Your designs are so harmonious, balancing the lines of the top. There's always both beauty and a sort of cleverness. Always fresh.
