Day 2 - of 100 days of quilts

Paisley Craze - Quilts and more - Bohemian Rhapsody

Paisley Craze is an approximately 40" x 40" table square. This quilt was originally published in Quilts & More in the summer of 2007. As you can tell, this isn't the magazine photo, instead we chose this picture which was taken at our local quilt show. We chose it because you can see the AMAZING quilting of this piece. The work was done by a quilter in Reno NV, who we have never met - but who has done work for RJR. Because the center is largely open, it invites you to be creative with your quilting, and do something dramatic. We absolutely love the large feather motif that the quilter used. It is stunning, and yet unexpected. Who would of thought to do something as traditional as a feather motif in the middle of a simplistic table square. We love getting a project back from the quilter, opening it up, and having our sock knocked off.

The feathers are great with the paisley motif. I remember seeing this in the magazine.
