daisy days {some progress}


Remember my daisy day quilt...



... the one I started way way back *sigh* in May 2015
using Meredithe's templates



It's been one of those WiP's that I've found nice to just pop back & forth on 
- I get inspired, I sew, I take a break, I get inspired, I sew, etc.



A great scrappy combination of some of my favourite florals and assorted low volume fabrics
{And I found an amazing tutorial for piecing those y-seams over here}




Well, these blocks are finally making it into a quilt top this week!










More pics soon
Linking up this week with Cynthia for 'oh scrap' here
'moving it forward' over here at em' s scrapbag
and with 'Scraptastic Tuesday' here at mrsssewandsow

    2. Thank you so much Nancy!
      It’s turning out to be quite a scrappy traditional style of quilt, which is a nice change!
      And I’m enjoying this again now, especially as it’s all going together so well... so far! I think setting the blocks all ‘’on point’ seems to add a bit more interest too!
      Forget the housework... the groceries... I’m going to keep sewing today:)
