WiP Wednesdaisy!










lots of inset seams





hey, these daisies are taking over my design wall!


Just loving watching it all slowly come together! This Daisy Day block is a remake of a 1930's pattern, with the petals stitched onto an octagon, squared up with triangles & squares, and then set on point. In true Jen Kingwell style, I'm using as many fabrics as I can! Little scrappy bits of brights, florals & spots, lots of my favourite ones that get used over & over. They are all mixed up with some of my new Gardenvale range. And I've used a variety of background fabrics too, whites, creams & grey with a couple of beiges - hopefully creating a more scrappy vintage feel.

Enjoy the photos!

  2. It definitely looks vintage , reminds me of somewhere around 1930 with the range of fabrics you have used, not that I was around in 1930!! Are you going to machine or hand quilt?

    1. Hi Maureen, Yes, I’m very happy so far with the vintage-y vibe here! I’ve still got quite a few to make, but I’m thinking I will possibly hand quilt this... it’ll be fun looking at all the different fabrics as I stitch.
      And it’ll be nice to have some hand stitching on the go over winter. Linda

    1. Thank you! Yes, I’m using a template set I bought some years ago, Daisy Days by Meredithe Clark.
      I think this is the lady who blogs here – https://pomegranateandchintz.wordpress.com/ Linda
