Christine's Daisy on a Stick

This quilt is just pure fun. It's a wall hanging that Christine and a friend did as a round robin, I believe. She has a couple of West Highland Terriers, one of whom is named daisy, represented by the dog in the centre of the wall hanging. 
We continued the theme of daisies through the quilting. The centre appliqué area is stitched in the ditch, and then loops quilted in the background. The next border, the green stripes, was left to stand on its own, with just some stitch in the ditch to separate it. The triangles were also stitched in the ditch, with a tear drop shape thrown in, just to break up all the straight lines a bit.
The large outer triangles got some daisies and leaves quilted into them. And the final border got some single daisies and leaves to go all around it, for a nice finish.

  1. That is so cute and I love the quilting pattern. It would make a great Christmas wall hanging. Love the colors in it.


I love reading all your comments, and am grateful for each one. I try very hard to answer them all, but lately I haven’t quite been able to answer all of them.
