|Pinwheels and Daisies Quilt|
The Pinwheels and Daisies Quilt is finished! I am really excited about how this quilt has turned out. I love the simple design from traditional patchwork units, and the colorful "field of daisies".
Other than a major and ongoing sewing machine crisis (not unlike a computer blue screen) no difficulties were encountered in the eventual basting, quilting and binding of this quilt. My backup sewing machine was a trooper and came to my rescue. I have quilted an all over grid of edge to edge lines, which really adds to the overall modern look of the quilt despite the traditional design.
I have written a pattern for the Pinwheels and Daisies Quilt.
The pattern (pdf file) is available as an immediate download from:
|Pinwheels and Daisies Blocks in TWO different sizes|
On the right is the original size block as used to make the quilt pictured here, and on the left is the larger size block for comparison. Included also are cutting and sewing instructions for both blocks as well as fabric requirements for three additional quilt sizes regardless of what size block you choose to make. Lots of options!
As always seam pressing instructions (and photos of the back of the blocks) are included to ensure that all seams nest together when sewing together your blocks into a quilt top, as well as handy hints and tips which will assist in the successful completion of this project (see the pattern listing for all pattern details).
The actual quilt itself is not for sale this time, but I am looking forward to seeing the many different versions and interpretations of this quilt made by you!
Thank you for enthusiasm which has spurred me on to write this pattern, and as always thank you for stopping by!
