The pretty petals of the Daisy are just delightful don’t you agree?
I mean, what other flower let’s you pluck them one by one to find out whether or not that special someone loves you?
They’re especially delightful when you finish a quilt that you have had the fabric for 7 years.
Don’t ask me why after 7 years I finally decided to get this quilt made. Guess there’s something to be said about the 7 year itch. lol!
I must say, it’s a fabulous feeling to have this one behind me. I’ve never cut so many 1 1/2 inch strips only to sew them together again and cut them back into 1 1/2 inch strips. You quilters know what I am talking about.
I picked this quilt up at the quilters just before I left for my Napa Valley vacation. My cousins, Aunt Hazel loves to bind quilts. I decided to take it to her and knew that she would have it ready when I returned home. Now mind you, she is 90 years old. I took it to her on a Friday afternoon. The next morning we were on the road heading to Reno for the first night. She called and had it finished. My, this is no small quilt. Our bed is King size. What an amazing lady!
I started to make two pillow shams but decided I liked just one tucked between my two red euros.
I knew that this quilt would look nice with my yellow painted wall. A much prettier color than it looks in the photo. But oh my gosh, look how the colors match my canvas print hanging above the bed. Not Daisies, Poppies; still the colors are perfect!
The quilter quilted it with a pretty rambling Daisy and leaf pattern in gold thread.
Of course I had to pick some Daisies to put by the bedside.
It makes a lovely summer time spread. And guess what? He loves me!!
Celebrating 42 years of wedded bliss today!
Hope yours loves you too!
I will be sharing with these lovely parties:
