What materials did you use? I used bits and bobs of left over material from other projects and cut up old sheets and clothing. The petal shapes for the flowers are an idea that developed in my mind after watching The Craftsy Block of the month, how to make the Dresden plate pattern block. Just cut a piece of card into a petal shape the size you need and cut as many as you need out of the material that you like. Each petal will need a backing so that you can turn it right side out to leave a neat edge after sewing all round. Cut a off a small piece of material from one of the pointed ends of the petal and turn right side out and sew onto your block. Centres of the flowers are done in the same way but cut a small slit in the back of the centre of the circle then turn right side out. Press all pieces with a warm iron before sewing onto your block.

What are you most proud of? I love the way the daisy`s just pop out at me after stippling around them.

What a clever idea - I love it! I love daisies too, and even had an Auntie Daisy. I may just have to "steal" your idea for a baby quilt. Incidentally, your vermicelli quilting is great and exactly right for this quilt - well done you!!

Go ahead have a try, the daisy pattern takes a bit of time to do but on a baby quilt it wont be so bad. Let me see when you`ve done.
