Daisy Chain Squares- A Quilt for Sarah

July 20, 2009 at 11:45 am 10 comments

This is my most recent finish, a nearly twin-sized quilt for my sister Sarah.  She’s getting married in August and I really wanted to make her and her wonderful fiancee a quilt in colors I was sure they would like.  Amy Butler’s line from Daisy Chain provided just the perfect balance of neutral with fresh color.

There are 12 squares, each 12 – 14 inches.  I put the squares right to the edge, which I like.  I think doing that gives it a more modern feel.  Also, in the sashing, I tried a different kind of quilting.  I was inspired by this blogger who does a similar kind of quilting and whose work I really enjoy.  You can see it more clearly here on the back.  It’s a sort of wavy, overlapping stitching.

I love that tiny block on the bottom. 

I was able to give this to Sarah over the weekend at her bridal shower.  I am so happy to give this to her at such a happy time in life.
