Daisies and Dots Blocks

Today I sewed together component parts of the thirty Daisies and Dots blocks.


Here they are laid out and ready to be sewn together into a quilt top.


The fabrics came together nicely, I think.  I still have to make a decision about the back.  I'm going to use that red batik for the binding.  That much I know.  I'd like to quilt it with red thread, which has me leaning toward a white back.  I'm thinking a white background with red polka dots would be nice, but that will mean buying some fabric.  The quilt blocks are 13.5 inches square, and so the quilt will end up approximately twin sized.


So . . . what do you think?

Very nice!

Wow! Dazzling quilt! A white with red dots would work as a back, especially if you are going to quilt it in red.

Diane Wild said...

Yup, your backing idea sounds good. This quilt is truly wonderful. Great job.

I think you are a speedy stitcher! I am impressed! I think you're idea for a quilt back is perfect for what is going to be another really pretty quilt!

You definitely get a Whoop Whoop! It's wonderful! So cheery and happy... The red stitching would be gorgeous on a white back. I love the BQ2 patterns!!!

Wonderful quilt. I think your idea for the backing is quite nice.

Whoop! Whoop! I love the daisy fabric!!!! Can you tell me who manufactures it please.

Kat said...

I have not seen that pattern before. Looks like it would go together fairly quickly (always looks easier on someone else's blog, doesn't it?). I think white or white with red print on the back would look great. Happy quilting!

Such a cute use of the fabrics you've chosen and the pattern. I've spent hours this week looking for my BQ patterns--I know they've been tucked into some fabric somewhere and I'll find them. Soo--guess I'll work on something else. Yours makes me really want to find that pattern!

I like your ideas on this one.

Wow, that's a great use of a big, bold print! What a striking quilt!

Daisy said...

That is a beautiful quilt and I particularly like it because it has Daisies and my name is Daisy. Is there a pattern out there for it or did you design it yourself.
Thanks, Daisy

You quilt is going to be amazing! If you want all of your quilting to show go with the white. If you would like a bit of camouflage I'd go with the polka dot.

JanetK said...

What a cool block - is it your own design? I love how the quilt is looking!

Sarah Craig said...

What a gorgeous quilt! I love the colors, and it's a very interesting pattern!! I also like your idea for the back, and for quilting it in red. Whoop whoop!!

Karen said...

Very pretty. I love the colors.

KatieQ said...

I really love the polka dots with the daisies.

mammafairy said...

Nice simple idea, executed beautifully, end result- gorgeous!

krista said...

oh my goodness it's totally rad! i've never seen this pattern before. I like it! also, i think the daisy print gives it so much more movement, what a great fabric to use. Good luck choosing a backing, polka dots sound great to me!

Susan Being Snippy said...
