My Own Quilt


I found this pattern a few months ago and immediately began searching for the fabrics i wanted to use. Once they all arrived I started piecing, piecing, piecing. I loved the top when it was completed but it took me a very long time to come up with a quilting plan. I had a week off from working on customers’ quilts just before the holidays and I took a deep breath and put it on the frame. Oh, did I have fun. It took me several days to work out the placement and stitching but I am pretty happy with the result.

Oopsie Daisy

I made this quilt from a Missouri Star pattern and I loved its bright cheerful quality and thought I would enter it in our guild quilt show. Once I had it quilted and bound I hung it up so I could inspect it for wayward threads and much to my surprise I realized one triangle was turned the wrong way. I had a good laugh and named it Oopsie Daisy. I guess the judges had a good laugh too and awarded it a ribbon.
