As promised, I finished quilting my Paisley Party quilt. I love it. I have also machine applied the binding so it is ready to be hand sewn to the back. I feel such satisfaction right now. You all know that feeling, right? Well here is the completed quilt...
I quilted it with a paisley design. Why not, it is definitely in keeping with the theme. I used a variegated rayon thread. The colors were all shades of yellows and oranges. Love it! I think this quilt will be well used and loved.
With the scraps, I again used my AccuQuilt and cut up them into 3.5 inch squares and made this little table topper. I have since quilted this one with a paisley design, as well. It is really sweet!
One last eye candy picture. I have never done this before in my 9 years of business. I have a wonderful customer, her name is Susan. She sends me the most beautiful quilts to be quilted. She has been a customer of mine for a long time. Well, she e-mailed me one day and said she was shipping me a quilt that was "so me" and that I would love it. I have to say that ALL her quilts are "so me" and I love all of them.
So what could this quilt possibly be..... hmmmm. I got the box and couldn't wait to open it. When I did, I had to wipe the drool off my chin and floor. It was a beautiful Cinco De Mayo quilt. The funny thing is that I have Karen Stone's book and had full intentions of making this quilt. Well, after drooling over this quilt for days. I finally got up the nerve and called Susan and asked if I could buy it from her.
She wasn't giving it to anyone and she said, YES! I was thrilled!!! So I bought this beautifully crafted quilt top from Susan. Now all I have to do is quilt it and it will hang in my foyer. It will replace the Easy Stash quilt that has been hanging for about 5 years. I can't wait. So once again Thank you, Susan, you are terrific and so is the quilt!!
