This is beautiful. My mom makes a lot of doilies and this would be a grat way to create a project together. How did you attach the doilies to the top? Just through quilting?

I'm looking at the close-ups, but can't tell - how did you affix the crochet to the fabric? Is each point stitched down? Was it by machine or hand? Beautiful work!

Thanks! I attached the doilies with small dots of Glue Baste and then stitched them down by machine with a very tiny zig-zag and 100Wt thread. I blogged about it in depth here - http://joanne-threadhead.blogspot.ca/2012/10/design-it-quilt-it-online-class.html

Is there a pattern for this?

12/22/2014 Flag

No, there is no pattern. I just attached some small, old doilies to a piece of fabric, and divided up the background for quilting - just like the class.
