    Happy Daisies is not my pattern or design. I saw a picture of a quilt like this and I thought it was the happiest quilt I ever saw. It was on another quilting forum. I asked the person that posted the picture about the pattern. She said it was a customer's quilt and would ask about it. When she questioned the piecer she was told the piecer was not the designer and didn't know where it came from. No one seemed to know.

    I copied it and named it 'Happy Daisies'. I played around with paper until I got the size petals and stems that I wanted. Then I made a template. The blocks are 13" square and then cut in half and sewed together, then squared to 12 1/2". I copy lots of things I see, unless it specifically says don't copy it. 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.

    What a happy way to start my weekend!! Love it and "I" want one, too. Need to make a cheerful quilt for when my mom comes to visit in October. This should do it. Thanks for sharing.

    Your Happy Daisy is one of the happiest quilts I've ever seen! Love your selection of color and the positive/negative effect. Beautifully done! :thumbup:

    Lovely!!! I am thrilled when I work on a "happy" quilt. Right now I sewing a layer cake combo from Moda that just makes me happy. Hope to be posting it soon on this panel. I have seen pears, leaves, and pumpkins with the positive and negative but love this daisy pattern. You have done such a nice job and wherever the pattern came from first should be thrilled at such a beautiful specimen as yours!

    I love the way you used the colors and the reversing of color placement.

    Very cheery, pretty quilt.

    I don't have any plans for it. I have more quilts than I will ever use. I now make quilts because I love doing it. This quilt is probably twin size (?), maybe a bit bigger. I don't have a twin bed in my house. Some day, a little girl will come to my house and fall in love with this quilt and it will become hers. That's how my orphans find their homes. You can tell when someone really likes something and they should have it.
