Daisy Chain Squares- A Quilt for Sarah
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.
