    Paris Plaid

    This pattern is from the May/June 2011 issue of McCall's Quilting magazine. I loved it and bought myself the kit for Christmas last year. I just finished it yesterday and I am thrilled with how it turned out. It's bigger than I thought it would be - about 66" x 90" completed. The kit included a red/while checkered print for the binding but I decided to use black as I thought it would compliment the border fabric better.

    The fabrics in this kit are gorgeous. I don't know why stores don't stock more like this. I was in my LQS on the weekend to drop off my General's Wives quilt to be longarmed, and I looked around and didn't see anything as nice as these ones.

    Back (above). I scored the deal of the century on the backing fabric last week. It was on a clearance/discontinued table at Fabricland for $3 a meter. I remember when they brought this fabric in a couple years ago because I really liked it but didn't want to pay $14 a meter for it.

    Detail (above). I love this fabric with the Eiffel Tower and the words. I have always really liked toile, and I hardly ever see it in the quilting stores.

    I'm not a lover of Plaid, but this quilt is the exception. Very pretty. Thanks for sharing.

    It wasn't hard to do at all, actually. You just make strip sets and cut them up in the same manner as you would for a 9 patch.

    Thanks to everyone for the wonderful feedback!
