    This is for my daughters 30th Birthday. Her birthday was in May but she is not coming to visit until the end of this month so I had a little extra time to make it and thank goodness as the project has just grown!! (must be all the rain we have had! lol) Now I just have to summon up the courage to quilt it! I plan to echo all the flowers and to do cross hatching in the butterfly borders. Still not sure what I am going to do in the plain cornerstones (they are there because I cut the butterfly borders too short! )
    thank you for looking

    Love, love, love the daisy quilts. Yours is beautiful. The butterflies are a nice addition. Hope to see a garden full of daisies this summer. Good job.

    Thank you all ! There are 30 daisies and 30 butterflies. One of the quilt board members sent me a jpeg pattern and I sort of went from there but had to resize and redraw petals and leaves to suit my size of block. I made several changes from other happy daisy quilts I have seen on the board and in my LQS. The stems I made by making the fabric into bias binding so they have a little more definition. I also wanted grass in my daisy garden so bordered all of the blocks . The butterflies are embroidered appliques
    Thank you so much for such kind comments

    All coloured fabrics are batiks (except for the green leaves and borders) as they are my first love for quilting! lol

    Lovely design! So bright & cheery. Love the mirrored image design of the flowers. Maybe you can quilt "echo" flowers in the cornerstones?

    That ia a piece of ART work lady!! I have never seen that pattern before, where did you get it. I love DAISIES and would love to make that, matbe not that large though :P
    Is it all applique?
    How long did it take you to make all that?
    I have been looking for a daisy pattern for 2 yrs. and until now never found one. You do "GORGEOUS" Your daughter will go crazy for that. You would win first price if you inter it in the fair os show.
    I don't know you but sure wish we were neighbors.
    Shirley/Tn. :thumbup:
    PM me if you have pattern information.

    So pretty! I have that pattern....now I need to move it closer to the top of my to-do list. I really like the addition of your embroidered butterflies too. I am hoping withing the next week to purchase an embroidery machine, which is now on sale. So many ideas.....so little time.

    That is one lovely field of flowers. The corner square is perfect.
