Ruby Paisley












Completed and freshly washed, Ruby Paisley is beautiful, vibrant and yet soft to touch. The extra hand quilting was just what it needed and I love how the quilting looks on the dark grey, truly a reversible quilt. In fact I am tempted to make another almost identical but maybe with the whole 'back' in the dark grey. I really do enjoy the process of decorative hand quilting and this whole cloth quilt is the perfect backdrop for hand quilting.

I have listed it in my Esty shop, yet I know of at least one friend who would be happy to call it their own if it's not snapped up before her birthday..... Best get started on another in these gorgeous organic fabrics!

Update- July *This quilt has been gifted to my friend for her birthday - she loves it!

Grays and pinks do go together well, and who can go wrong with paisley on anything! I have been thinking about a quilt of browns and pinks. Have you ever made one with these colors? If I had a bucket list, this would be something I would put on the top of the list...making a quilt of browns and pinks.

Blessings to you Karen.

That is such a gorgeous quilt!! I love the way the stiching shows through on the back. I can see why you are tempted to make another with the grey, the coloured thread on the dark backgroud looks wonderful.
