Daisy Quilted and Bound

A Daisy a Day is finished in time for the quilt show next month. I used a Mountain Mist Cream Rose cotton batt and YLI Soft Touch, Metler Fine Embroidery and Aurifil Mako threads for quilting. It's linked to the Free Motion Quilting Project because I used Flowing Leaves to fill the background.

A red ladybug rests on a daisy petal against a blue background in this original art quilt .

Here's a closeup of the ladybug on its daisy.


How did I create the legs? I cut them from this Alexander Henry fabric. It's also the reason the quilt was reversed. There weren't three legs in the other direction!


Fret not; enjoy the day.

    1. I'm sorry there is not. I drafted this myself.
