Feeling some paisley

I love paisleys. They seem mysterious and rich, the classic colorations are always really saturated. So I was thrilled to luck upon a layer cake of Holiday in Kashmir, on sale!

Pattern is "Ashley's Journey" from the book Piece of Pie by Pie Plate Patterns. This brick & stone block went together really fast. (A great book, too. I will be making more from it, for sure!)

This is a Christmas colored quilt, but it is not overtly "Christmas". I FMQ-ed it in a large all-over meander, since this is a busy pattern full of busy prints. The large scale quilting keeps it really cuddly, too.

Photobombed by my son. I sure do love that boy!
