    Tisha posted this earlier in the year..I feel like I was a part of the whole process of this quilt..she sent me a photo of some fat quarters as asked what I would do with them...and they were Named "Charisma" of course I had to come up with something.
    I said "Focus Pocus" that Swirly Girls pattern that I love so much! I made one ...although it still isn't quilted.

    She bough the pattern..made the quilt....and sent it to me for longarming....
    :thumbup:

    How special is that?

    She requested the continous curve bumps in the squares.....wreaths and swirling feathers...with purple thread ( Thanks Dmyers!..you sent the perfect color! and i love the brand!)...now I found this so difficult because as a freehand quilter..I am not perfect...so making everything match perfectly when you have a high contrast thread is :cry: difficult..LOL. But we made it through...I love the way it turned out....

    The backing is just as beautiful as the front..I love pieced backings anyway...but you can also see much of the quilting. Beautiful finish!

    I quilted this freehand on my INNOVA. I used HObbs Poly down batting.

    Thanks for looking!

    Well, I'm no fan of purple, but I have to say this is one sweet quilt! Lovely fabrics, and as usual, Charisma, you have made it extra-special.

    Those feathers are FABULOUS, just perfect for the design of the top! Really takes a great top to that next level.

    I know that you said you were not perfect...in my book you are about as close to perfection as one can get!! Love the wreathes & feathers.

    Hi-boy, is this a stunning quilt! I have collected some Asian fabrics and waiting for a great pattern to show them off in. Do you think this would suit? Where can I find this pattern? Thanks! Your quilting finished this off just perfectly!

    Fantastic! Love it. Hmmm, you have to give it away?? That would be hard if it weren't for somebody so special!
