I am entering Parisville Weave into the Modern Quilt category. I finished this quilt at the very end of August. I've petted, cuddled, and slept many a night under this quilt; it brings me great joy! It measures approximately 75X87".
I really need to find a better way to display large quilts. My husband is so cooperative, but for the larger ones, his armspan doesn't quite do the quilt justice. Still, I was able to get some great shots.
|One of my neighbours was gracious enough to let me shoot some photos from his walkout-basement home so I could get a full-on shot.|
I quilted it on my Avanté, using ruler work for the dot to dot designs and free-motion quilted for all the others. There is a little Angela, a little Christina, and a little Kathleen here.
I fell in love with the aqua and red colour combination when I saw the quilt, and decided to purchase the kit. I quilted it almost entirely with Isacord threads, and a variegated Coats and Clark one for the Christina Cameli meander.
This is a pattern and kit from Quilt Sampler Fall 2011 magazine. It is mainly Tula Pink's Parisville line of fabrics but there are some Art Gallery fabrics in it as well, and Kona solid for the side setting triangles.
Here is the back, backing I picked up from Fat Quarter Shop in their sale section.

Voting begins in two days. Thanks so much to Amy for organizing this and for everyone who does take the time to enter. It's a fun and inspiring celebration. :-)
