This was really the first real quilt that I made for myself. I spent several weeks hunting for fabrics in the exact color scheme I was looking for, which will go along with my sewing studio when it’s finished.
I fell in love with Amy Bradley’s applique designs and tweaked her Doo Da Daisy Quilt pattern to include vertical sashing in addition to the sashing that was already there. I also shrunk the block size to what ended up being about 6 1/2 inches and added the cornerstones. The original quilt was twin size and I didn’t want it that big, but by the time I added the sashing, it ended up being bigger than I originally planned, plus it’s square! The daisies are all machine appliqued using a blanket stitch.
I had the finished top machine-quilted at Lewistown’s Sew Pieceful on their long-arm as a gift to myself.
