    HI All,

    I wanted to show my daisy quilt in progress. This is the first time I free quilted. Im soo happy I can do it. Im just following the flowers around and around. Well my old sewing maching was giving me problems and my hubby said go buy a new one. I was out the door. I found one at walmart just a sewing machine nothing to fancy. then a couple of weeks later I went to another Walmart. I walked down the sewing isle and found a quilting sewing machine with 80 stitches and 120 functions. It was 50 dollars more then the one I just bought, I called hubby and told him he said yes.. I brought the other one back. I just love the new one. Has so many fun stitches on it. I also made pillow cases and put hearts on one and little flowers on another. My hubby said he hasent seem me so happy that the look on my face was priceless. I have a question tho, I think me making all daisy squares is a little bit to much for me, so im thinking to put a different square between them. But what square ? Im thinking maybe a 4 square ? or 2inch strips ? somthing easy, What do you all think ? Plus im doing the daisy's quilt, quilt as you go first time for that too. Thanks blossom

    You did a really good job! I think the daisies are superb and the pillowcases are excellant! A sashing between daisies would look nice, as would a solid square between them... maybee you could do different color squares with intricate quilting on each one? You know, pick 2-3 colors from your daisies and make solid squares from each one.... Whatever you decide to do will look wonderful I am sure!

    I would use plain blocks (or marbles, blenders) in between, so as not to distract from the daisies. That's just my opinion.

    Yes there is a pattern for it. In here, Kathyaire has it. She was so kind to share with me. Dang I cant seem to copy it, Not sure how, but if you go to search button on top and put in Happy Daisy pattern inside the box. A hole bunch will show up and look for Happy Daisy by Kathyaire, She will tell you how to make it. and if you pm her she will most likely send you the pattern pieces. Have fun making it, I sure am.. and thank you all for helping me on the other square.. I think a soild square is perfect.. would be easy.. More minds work much better... The size I have is 12x12in.

    Love your daisies. Also, like Kim's suggestions for a block with rather simple fabric, not solid fabric but some tone on tone.

    What great quilt blocks. I think a four square block would be nice in between. using the colors of the back ground on your daisy blocks of course. Keep up the good work and keep the hubby too.

    Nice job, Blossom. Hope you finish soon and share more pictures. I liked your use of fancy stitches from your new machine onto pillowcases. Keep up the good work!

    Thank you all for putting a big smile on my face. I would like to give a Big Thank you to Kathyaire who first made the Daisy quilt, and passing on the pattern to me.

    Love, love, love your daisies and your fabrics. I can think of a few little girls who would adore a quilt made with those blocks. I think if you want to break up the daisies, as others have mentioned, a plain block perhaps with one of your featured fabrics would look lovely. You don't want to take anything away from the daisy blocks or make it too busy looking.
