    Basic Instructions for Happy Daisies

    http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-58236-1.htm

    I do not have a pattern. I don't know how much fabric is needed. I don't know how to teach. This is basic instructions as I remember. My quilt is 59 X 81. There are 24 blocks, four across and six down, and a 6 1/2 inch unfinished border. I tried to not duplicate any colors. The best I can tell, if you had a white fat quarter and a colored fat quarter, you could get two blocks from that set, one with the color on the left and one with the color on the right. There would be a little fabric left over, but not a lot.

    I cut a 13 inch square of white and a 13 inch square of colored fabric. I then cut those 13 inch squares in half. I sewed a color to a white with a 1/4 inch seam. I used wonder under on the fabric that would make the petals, leafs, stem and center of the daisy. I did raw edge applique around all the pieces. Then I squared the blocks to 12 1/2 inch.

    If you are interested in my templates, PM your snail mail address to me and I will send you a copy. I scanned the copy and emailed it to myself by the sizes are not right when I got the email. If you what to enlarge them from the email, I will send it to you that way. Otherwise, I don't mind mailing them to you USPS.

    If I left out anything, I'm sorry. I will be glad to explain any of the parts that don't make sense.

    I love this quilt!! You did an amazing job! Just one question...I don't really machine applique except for a few little things. Do you machine applique each block first and then piece the quilt? And do you need to add a tear away stabilizer to the back before you applique? Thanks for your help.

    I first sewed the two half pieces together (positive/negative). Then I fuse the daisy parts, which have WonderUnder on them) to the block. I machine appliqued with a stitch, that on my machine is called 'applique', I think some people call it a blanket stitch. I have used a zig zag stitch for appliquing. I don't use a stabilizer on the back, maybe I should, but I don't.

    Thanks for the information on the daisy quilt. I think I can draw the petals and take it from your information.
    I'm trying to set me up some work to do when it gets cooler weather. Thanks again jeandrig

    Thanks for the info on the quilt. really appreciate it. Did you see the one with the flower petals and the round center had a happy face on it? I want to try that one also.
    I'm trying to get some started that I can quilt on during the cold winter. I'm starting one now with colorful blocks and appliqued frogs. Thanks again

    Thanks for the reply. Did you hand applique the leaves and petals? I am definitely going to try this quilt. (When I finish the projects I am working on LOL).
