A New Finish!

 I am excited to show you my newest finish! I have been working on it in bits since late January. I bought the Fresh as a Daisy pattern from Lindsey @penandpaperpatterns a while back because it was so cute, but I had other things going on so it was put aside until I saw this quilt! I loved the colors and I had the perfect fabric in my stash for it! Years ago, several yards of this green dotted fabric was given to me. I used some of it in other quilts (most recently here) but I knew I needed to make a daisy quilt with it. There was plenty left!

The daisies are made with Kona white and a Kona yellow from my stash.  I really enjoyed the method of construction in this pattern. The pattern is well written and easy to understand with illustrations to help. It was fun to make!
The backing piece from my mom's stash (that I inherited) was another perfect match. 
I quilted in the ditch around each daisy and I FMQ a spiral in the centers and loopy meanders in the background.

The binding is the same Kona cotton yellow as the daisy. 
This quilt finished at 43.5" x 53" after making some adjustments to the layout from the original baby quilt. Lindsey's pattern is arranged in a 4 x 4 square measuring 48" sq. I still made 16 daisies but altered the position of the daisies similar to the throw size lay out. I prefer rectangular quilts over square... 
Photos were taken in one of our local parks with lots of green and spring flowers!
This quilt was made to be donated for #hands2help2021. I'm not going to lie, this one will be hard to give up. I guess I need to make another!

  1. Adorable!!!! The green background is perfect and the yellow daisy among the white is so fun. I can see how this would be hard to give away.... yes, you better get started on another. . lol

  2. This daisy quilt is a sweet Spring nod. Love the design with a single yellow daisy among the white ones. Yes, the green dot is perfect, as is the backing from your Mom’s stash. And the yellow binding also is a perfect choice. Someone will be more than thrilled to cuddle under this quilt.

  3. This is adorable!! and so springy and just perfect!! What a great finish!

  4. Hi Dawn! This is just SO stinkin' cute. I can see why you wanted to make one, and you definitely need to make another for yourself. This one will be hard to top! The colors and the backing are just perfect. ~smile~ Roseanne
