    Psychedelic 4 Patch Paisley

    I just completed a lap quilt for my DGD. She loved the 4 Patch Posey bedrunner http://www.quiltingboard.com/picture...t-t224724.html that I made for my bedroom, but her take on the 4 Patch Posey was a lot different than mine. She found this very colorful paisley print that she loved, then found bold fabrics to match. She decided on the sashing, cornerstones, etc. I chose the binding (love that faux piped binding), panto (Paisley by Patricia Ritter), backing (extra wide plain black-1st time for that), and thread color top and bobbin (Signature "Gem" in Tri-Lobal Poly). Made the pillowcase cuff w/a faux piped binding.

    I just love love love this! It would make me feel happy on the greyest of days! Your DGD had excellent taste in fabric and you made her ideas come to life. Great collaboration!

    Your DGD did a fabulous job picking out fabrics. The quilt turned out spectacular. I love using the wide back for LAQ and your variegated thread really pops beautifully on that dark backing.

    It is gorgeous!!! So colorful... Like the varigated thread used too. That gives me an idea for my 1st DGD's graduation quilt & 4 other girls....
    Did you present it to her rolled up in the pillowcase? I have been wondering what to do with my DGK's..

    She's in Kentucky and I'm in Michigan, so I haven't presented it to her yet. I will probably have to mail it to her. She's in college studying to be a chef. She will be going to Spain for a work/study for part of the summer.
