    .............is solved. Thanks to Watson58. She posted that she won a raffle quilt several years ago. Said the quilt was called 'Shadowed Daisy'. She also said that the pattern was often advertised in the Rural Missouri Sac Osage Electric Cooperative News. I asked her to give me specific information about the pattern. She did. I ordered the pattern and received it yesterday. I'm convinced that 'Happy Daisies' is a variation of that pattern. I called and talked with Evelyn McCarty, the owner of 'Shadowed Daisy'. I told her the whole story of how I came about making my quilt and that I'm sure her pattern was the inspiration for the quilt. I also told her that many people asked me about the pattern and that many people have made the quilt. I told her that I NEVER once took credit for the pattern, which is the truth.

    If anyone would like to purchase the pattern, send a check for $8.00 to Evelyn.

    Kathy, I have been looking online for an image of Evelyn's pattern . . . Someone mentioned "painted daisys", but I do not care for that one at all. Googling "shadowed daisy" right now (dial up).

    If hers looks a LOT like yours, I would consider springing for the pattern . . . . I *really* like yours, and I am not a flower-quilt person!!

    There is apparently a "shadow daisy" by JoAnn Hudson, but I can't find an image of that one either!

    ugh!!

    Is her pattern just like yours? Is it still available? Do you have contact information?

    Thank you so much for this info. I had PM'd you earlier with the request for the pattern, but you were not able to provide that pattern. Now, thanks to you, I know where to get it, and can make this for my granddaughter. People on the QB are the best at tracking down info that the rest of us can use

    This is so odd. I have the pattern and it was a free handout from a LQS from some years ago in Arizona. Looks just like the one posted.
    I love my life!

    If, after reading the instructions and info contained within these two threads, you still want to contact Evelyn, her contact info is on post #74 of the last link.
