    Jo-anns had a white daisy on a blue background. really pretty. i'm making a triple irish chain out if it now for my mom.

    not sure how well you can see the daisy fabric, but here's a picture. jo-anns also has the same daisy print, but the daisies are larger. got some of that for the window toppers in her room.

    thank you everyone! didn't intend to steal thunder. it was the only picture i had of the fabric.

    Bev, if you can't find it and want me to see if my store still has it (they did as of last week, with both size daisies), let me know. we can work something out. seems to me it was $3 a yard or so.

    it's just about done in the picture here. i used the even feed and basically followed the pattern of the diagonals. then i free-motioned around the white squares and a heart medallion in the center. just have the borders to do today!

    Bev, I haven't been looking for daisy's in particular, so I can't help you there. Good luck finding some.

    Patti, your quilt for your Mother is beautiful. Thank you for sharing.

    Your quilt is absolutely beautiful and I am most intrigued by the photo that is sort of shaded into the one block and the working on the other blocks. What a treasure. I made a quilt for my 11 year old granddaughter. Our son was killed in a car accident when she was only 14 months old so she could not remember him so I made her a memory quilt with pictures of him from baby to just a few days before he died. On the back I put her most recent picture and his picture in his Army uniform next to it on the label with the words "I will always be your Guardian Angel". I put 2- 9" square pockets on the back, one for her to put a journal in to write things in that people tell her about her daddy and the other to write notes to him. I put long ties in it so that at night when she goes to bed she can say a prayer for him and tie a knot in one of the ties.
    She will not let it out of her sight and her half-siblings are not allowed to touch it.

    What a beautiful thoughtful thing to do for your granddaughter, know she will treasure it, brought tears to my eyes.

    Patty, love your moms quilt, are the sayings purchased or did you do them somehow? :D

    hi bluebird - the sayings are purchased from the local quilt shop. there were about 12 (?) of them. i used my favorite 6. they were only 5" squares so i had to add the inch to make them 6" finished blocks.

    the pictures were edited using photoshop with the vignette feature and printed on kona cotton. the pictures aren't actually sewn into the quilt. i made 'photo corners' for those blocks and stabilizer/interfacing on the back of them. they just slide into their spot and when the quilt needs washed or we want to change out the pictures, we just take them out.

    What a clever quilter you are to be able to remove the photo's when the quilt is washed. I have used the printed sayings from the quilt shops also, I think the name of the company that puts them out is something like "Talking Quilts" and they have special sayings for ffiends, daughters, mothers, sisters, etc.

    Great job on the quilt, I do love the daisies also. They really brighten things up. My favorite flower is the Lilac, I come from the midwest but have lived in California since 1981 so I really miss them in May of every year.
