Today's design inspired a funny story:
Pointy paisley is typically a very stand up guy. He's a little more regimented than his brother Paisley and always keeps his hair trimmed and clothes clean.
Or at least he does when he's sober! Yes, our dear friend Pointy Paisley occasionally has one too many drinks and morphs into the wild, rule breaking free spirit Drunk Pointy Paisley!
This isn't the first Paisley design to have a taste for the wild side. Just wait until you meet the rest of the family!
Inspiration - Have I ever mentioned my love of Art Nouveau? Lately I've been thumbing through my favorite books on this art form and was struck by a design of a ribbon flowing and twisting in the breeze.
When I stitched this as a pivot design, I realized how much it looked like pointy paisley, only looser and wiggly, therefore it must be drunk!
Filler Design Type - Pivot. This design will work just about anywhere on your quilt, so feel free to stitch it big for a quick finish, or stitch it small for a tight, awesome looking texture.
Difficulty Level - Intermediate. Pivoting, paisley like designs are really not that difficult. Just maintain an even distance as you echo and you'll do just fine.
Directional Texture - All directions. This design fills your quilt with an overall texture so place it where you want a lot of movement on your quilts.
Suggestions for Use - With the many paisley variations I've already made, I'm starting to wonder if I should make a quilt just featuring the lot of them...
I could even make it with paisley fabric so it'd be paisley's stitched on paisleys!
