Aqua and Daisies

Day 4 of 4 sharing my finished baby quilts.  Phew!! I feel soooo accomplished!! :)  If you see the last three posts this week you'll see all my quilts.  I'm selling them all in our shop :)

Aqua and Daisies
36" x 48"
Denyse Schmidt prints (9 patch)
Michael Miller (daisies)

Yesterday and today's quilt were both made while stranded this past summer.  We moved from AZ to VA and had unexpected problems getting into our town home.  You mean massive student loans cause problems?? :)

So Katie from Swim Bike Quilt was incredibly kind and gracious and helped us find an apartment to rent for 6 weeks.  All of our stuff was in storage, I literally had 1.5 weeks worth of items since we were just planning on a road trip.  I received some fabrics while I was there and decided to use my time wisely and so at night I sewed!  Katie lent me her Bernina and I hit JoAnns for a few coordinating prints, a new mat and cutter (I can totally justify that right?).

These daisies I have always thought were just so sweet!! So I focused on them and brought in coordinating 9 patch prints.They're 12" finished blocks.  I believe the daisies are 6" squared with 3" white sashing.  The 9 patches are 4" squared.  These are all FINISHED numbers, not cut (add .5").

Bound with a coordinating green and kept the back really simple with a floral aqua.  For quilting I stitched around all of the blocks.  And I'm a big fan of hand stitching my bindings :)

It's fun to play on traditional girl colors.  My personal favorite colors are blue and green!  Trust me you'll find at least one in every room of my house :)

Thank you so much for stopping by!!  We're truly touched by those of you who stop by and read or means a lot!!

Like I said these are all in OUR SHOP.

This one is so lovely! And ugh - how difficult to be displaced for so long like that. I'm so glad you found an outlet in quilting these sweet pieces. :)

Love that Daisy fabric. Great quilt. I too like to hand stitch my binding. It is so relaxing.
