What was your inspiration?
After seeing lot of plain teardrops being called Paisley, I wanted to see if I could quilt something more like the patterns I know as paisley.
What are you most proud of?
I like the swirling flourishes better than the paisley, but it's something to keep thinking about.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Ordinary cheap felt-tip markers can be used to draw in fabric, be ironed over and still wash out easily with nothing more than cold water and a little laundry liquid - I washed this in the bathroom sink in a few minutes.
