    I love this. It reminds me of one I saw recently called Coffee and Cream. The way it's positive/negative on each flower. Coffee and Cream is like that, but with stars. Beautiful work. Thanks for sharing.

If that's not okay, then I'm a dead duck. I do not have a creative mind. Even though I don't know where it came from originally, I do remember my mom making a daisy quilt about 50 years ago. She didn't use the positive/negative color scheme, just the daisy petals. That's probably why I like this quilt so much, it reminds me of her.
    That is really Beautiful!! Please pm me I would love to get your pattern!!

    Hi Kathie,
    Well no wonder you wanted to copy it, it is wonderful! You did a really nice job on the colors too. I copy patterns alot myself, not because I can't find it, because it saves me money ...LOL!
    It sure is a cute pattern.

    Well you did a wonderful job. I guess I'm not awake yet.

    Your quilt is sure happy such a nice pattern I think a lot of us have good "Daisy Memories" I can remember my Mom having a tablecloth that she had embroidered with daisies. She loved drawing and mostly made designs from pictures.You have done a wonderful job on this quilt And i'm sure it will become a treasure for someone special!

    It's lovely, and so cheerful! Are you going to share your templates and do a tutorial online? Heidi

    I LOVE daisies and hadn't seen them done this way before! Copying is OK by my book. I might copy your design to put on some cards I will be making!

    Thanks for the compliments. Some people asked for the pattern. I don't have a pattern. What I said in the original message is what I did as far as the size of the blocks. I can copy my templates and you could use them, as elementary as they are.

    I would love to have the template. My sister has a new home and I would love to make a quilt like this only different for her. She is into purple and this is the best!

    That's so pretty! And we could let our imaginations run wild with this idea - so many designs would work!
