Prairie Paisley = Rose Trellis

I have had the pattern and fabric for this quilt for about eighteen months. The pattern is from a summer mystery quilt along by Helen back in 2009. I fell in love with the Prairie Paisley line when it came out a couple years ago and just had to have some. And then when I saw Helen's finished quilt from the mystery quilt along I just knew what I wanted to make with the fabric. I cut out the fabrics last Friday and then sewed a little each day this week. Yesterday I ended up with no kiddos home for about 2 hours and sat down to put all the sections together and now I have a beautiful top. I am not quite sure that the stripe I selected was the right one for this project however as it fades away into the background.

your top looks really pretty. Subtle and elegant. I think the striped fabric looks great it caught my eye straight away. Very effective.
