Paisley Seas


I finished this quilt last week , just in time for my dad's birthday. I started it way back in, oh, I thought I started it last year but just checked and I started it in January, woo hoo, I'm not as slow as I thought.


This pattern was from Elizabeth Hartman's book The Practical Guide to Patchwork. I used Martinique,  part of a jelly roll and layer cake and the solid (from memory) is from a Robyn Pandolph range. It was beautifully quilted by Fiona The Quilting Fairy.


The backing, paisley from the Martinique range.

Binding is Luna Notte.


  1. Its beautiful Marg - the colours and the quilting - what a lovely pressie for your Dad! x

  2. I have always been a big fan of paisley. The colors on this quilt are lovely. You have been so crafty lately! I am so happy you have another finish!

  3. Very nice! I love Martinique.

  4. Oh I remember this! It looks awesome, I never expected any less. I do love the colours and fabrics. Nice to finish another project eh? :-)

  5. Beautiful, and on time! Can't complain about that. Strike it off your list and have a cocktail to celebrate!

  6. I have found that having a deadline - like a birthday - is very good for me. Then it's heads down , tails up and I get it finished.
    It's lovely. I'm sure he'll like it.

  7. How beautiful - I love the color! Very, very nice!!

  8. I love this quilt Marg. I loved the one you did for your Mum too! Beautiful soft colours -very restful which is a good thing in a quilt!

  9. That is a beautiful quilt! I love the soft colors and paisleys are a favorite of mine. I have that book too but haven't made anything in it yet. It's inspiring to see yours done in a different type of fabric that's every bit as beautiful.
