Which pantograph?

Today I booked the Kaffe Fasset quilt ( still debating that title - how about Diamonds through the ether with Jennifer?... can you tell I live not far from Liverpool and Beatle land?) into be longarmed ... Dennis is paying, fantastic chap that he is! Even for the binding to be done. He says he wants to stay married and somehow he thinks the chances are greater if I don't have to work on that quilt anymore! Perhaps no co-incidence then that the quilter is called Chris Marriage.


Anyway I got to spend some time looking at patterns - I had no idea there were so many to choose from and it made me think a lot about my own free motion options for other work.

If you go to the Intelliquilter site you can link to a number of sites offering endless patterns. Of course in reality many of them would look just fine on the quilt but we narrowed it to this and this. We have chosen but it would be interesting to see which one you would go for ( you might even change our minds!)

Pashmini - hands down. (The other one is not "full enough" in my opinion... & you did ask for my opinion.)

I would choose Pashmini, but then again I'm really into paisley at the moment

Found your blog - from my blog :) I have been thinking about doing that quilt for a while - I got the book a few weeks ago..... Need to save up for the material first.... oh, and find the t-i-m-e!

I agree with the others that Pashmini is "it" -- the paisley will work so well with all those Kaffe Fassett prints!

Well, I hate to be the oddball, but I am in favor of oriental blossom all the way. Simple, elegant and straightforward.

As a quilting design alone, I prefer the simple lines of the Oriental Blossom. However, with that particular quilt in mind, I agree that it may be a little sparse and the opulence of Pashmini complements the Kaffe Fasset fabrics.

Pashmini for me please.

Well done for getting it finished (95%)

I'd definitely pick the Pashmini - that is a gorgeous quilt - I hope you'll think it's worth all the work when you're done - I think you will! Denise in PA

I'm camping with the Pashminis too.

Both are quite lovely but the Pashmini most definitely!
