Paisley's for Joy

I have a client, we'll call her Joy, who always has fun, beautiful quilts for me to quilt for her. Last week she brought me this beautiful quilt to do. She said she wanted a paisley/floral motif all over, and not too tight.

I did some research, and found a picture of a journal someone had made. On the front of the journal was a group of paisleys all glued together to form a flower. That was my inspiration for the design I quilted into Joy's quilt.
I finished the flowers the same way I finished the paisleys, to make them look like they belong together.
After the paisleys and flowers were quilted into the top, I filled in the larger unquilted areas with a loose meander. I was so excited to show Joy her quilt when she came to pick it up, and she was so happy with it.

This pattern is an original design, and is available for quilting into any size of quilt. The flowers and paisleys vary in size and orientation, and are placed at random throughout the quilt top.

I think this is one of my favorites!!! Now you need to do one in plaid with the paisley design.
