Plaid Madness!

Plaid Madness!

This quilt is called "Plaid Ponies", by Joyce Stewart (Quilt it for Kids Mag - 2001) but I call it Plaid Madness!  Its all done with paper piecing.  There are over 50 different fabric patterns and colors.  I didn't have enough fabric to make this quilt, so I went down to a local home decorating shop and asked if they had any old fabric sample books.  The shop owner gave me four discontinued fabric sample books.   I was able to use quite a number of those samples...  way more than I had in my stash!   What made this even more difficult was the customer only wanted browns, beige's and tans... but.... in the end I was able to add a little more color!   Not only was I able to use those sample squares, but the my friend also got some very high end decorator fabrics!   Can't wait till it's done.  Not sure how I will quilt it yet.  Its a very busy quilt so I think simple is better.   Close ups to come!
