Rainbow paisley playtime

This gorgeous bright quilt was made by my customer Denise, who is a prolific piecer who I have quilted a number of quilts for this last year.  This quilt has lovely bright reds and oranges which feels very "volcanic" to me -  imagine molten lava....  well that is where my mind took me while I was quilting it at least.  I love those bright fabrics. 

Denise chose the "Paisley playtime" design and a variegated thread in primary colours.  She chose a deep red marble backing fabric with a sand colour thread on the back.   

I was pleased that the tension turned out perfectly  with the thread combination of rainbows by Superior threads on the top which can sometimes be very temperamental, and  I used Glide thread by Filtec in  my bobbin.

It turned out just fab....
