A Daisy Finish

This cute daisy wall-hanging was finished last week.  After seeing the pattern in the current Quiltmania magazine, I went on the hunt for a kit which was found on the In The Patch Designs website.  The Do A Daisy wall-hanging is completely hand stitched except fot attaching the front, back & batting together.  It was fun although a bit difficult to make good stitches in the center of the wall-hanging.

The leaves and petals are attached with a running stitch through the middle of the wool.  This gives them a subtle 3-D effect which is one of my favorite parts of the wall-hanging.

The Multi-Print Strata top is also completed.  It is the largest strata at 55″ x 58″ and does have some fullness which I will need to ease in during the machine quilting process.

All my curiosity and what-if questions regarding the Strata quilts have been answered at this time, so on to something else.

Time to load another quilt top on the quilting frame.  The winner – Black, White & Gold pieced in 2016.

This quilt rquires custom quilting, so more practice with rulers is coming my way.  I will probably start work on it sometime in October.  In the meantime a new scrappy project and an old UFO are jumping up & down and waving their hands.  I guess it is time to give them some personal attention.  More on that in a later post.

Have a good quilty week.

The Black, White & Gold quilt top (54″ square) was finished today – three days later than my goal.  The hexie flowers took longer than I anticipated.

I am pleased with all the changes I made to the pattern – especially the look of the circles behind a window pane.

Yesterday I also started machine quilting on Flags #2 and made the final decision on the next project.  One of the items on my 2016 quilt list is to sew with my recycle shirt stash.  I plan to make two quilts – Loco-Motion by The Country Quilter and Nifty Thrifty from Scraps & Shirttails by Bonnie Hunter.
