    Shelly's Paisley and Batik Quilt...... quilted by Charisma

    Shelly has been sending me a few quilts here and there for LAQ.

    She is a fairly new quilter and like all of us ...is trying out lots of different techniques, patterns and fabrics. It's so much fun quilting for her because she gives me freedom to quilt them however we want....which is always fun..right?

    So this time I did the swirly feather pastel paisly type quilt. The border got the half feather treatment...that always adds a nice texture.
    Thr othed quilt I decided to to combine a big ferny type feather and also little ferns..all framed in with Charisma Curls. Just kinds of adds some interest and texture.

    Thanks so much Shelly!

    I used Hobbs poly down batting.

    Thanks for looking.

    Hey Charisma I been wondering what thread you use as in your pics it shows up really well, in other words you can see the design very well.

    You do such beautiful work. How do you determine how to quilt it?

    Lovely quilts!
    A dog is not "almost human" and I know of no greater insult to the canine race than to describe it as such.
