DWM: year-end edition

This daisy bouquet wallhanging is for a P.E.O. sister who recently moved from here (Chicago suburbs) to Atlanta. Another member of our chapter, who is also a quiltmaker, will attach the binding. The pattern is by Linda Sullivan, d/b/a Linderella's Design Studio, and was published in McCall's Quick Quilts (July, 2006).

Do you remember these blocks from last week's DWM?  Set all together they were too dark.  I tried purple/lavender squares and found that those were too dark, as well.  [Note to self: next time cut just a couple of squares to audition rather than the entire piece of fabric in case you discover that it's not right for the project.] I rootled deeper in my batik stash and found a yard of yellow for the squares and a brighter purple for the setting triangles.  I've had the purple-and-yellow batik (border fabric)   for six years or so.    (The flimsy is approx. 66 x 73 and used 3-1/2 yards.)
Here is Easy Street, Step 6.  Pairs of 2" strips cut into 3.5" bricks.  128 of 'em? No problem!   Bonnie has just posted Step 7 of Easy Street. Yikes -- it's time to put the units together and I still haven't cut the lime green squares. 
You can see what other quiltmakers are working on at Judy's Patchwork TimesJudy's Patchwork Times. 
And tune in to this blog tomorrow for my Annual Reckoning post!


  1. Love that daisy bouquet , might have to go and search out the pattern for it which I'm sure I have somewhere in this collection of magazines. Not supposed to be starting anything new untill some of the UFOs are completed but I'm so tempted

  2. Your daisy bouquet is lovely. She is going to treasure it. And I'm wild about your other quilt you showed! Love it - that purple and yellow make it sing. Happy New Year!

  7. Hey Nann! You need to reply to the email from me earlier today in order to receive the lotto blocks you won. I've heard from everyone but you ... I know you know you won, but if I don't receive a reply, I'll have to pick an alternate winner. Thanks and congrats again.
