Grandmother's Daisy Garden

I had made a test block for this pattern ages ago and there it sat on my design wall. Then the right fabric came along and here it is. We just taped a how-to episode for the Love of Quilting PBS show, and the pattern will be in an upcoming issue of Love of Quilting magazine.

The leaves are curved paper pieced. Wait until you see the show and see how easy it is!

This quilt looks so soft and RESTFUL - I think I could handle making just a few Grandmothers flowers! - Have always loved them but didn't think I would finish a WHOLE QUILT of them... Can't wait for the pattern to be out!

Absolutely adore this quilt !   It uses hexagons but, just the right amount....not enough to get discouraged.  And I love the soft colors and the fact that it's so cheerful !   Just makes me smile to look at it.   You say it will be coming out in an upcoming issue of Love of Quilting magazine.......will there be options for a queen size quilt???????   (I hope, I hope, I hope)   The only problem I see, in so far as myself, I frequently fall in love with the total package including the fabric but by the time the magazine comes out the fabric is long gone and I can never find anything even close to those illustrated.  

Keep up the great work.

Love this quilt!  Actually saw it on F&P over the weekend.  It inspired me to get out some of the paper piecing patterns that I've had forever and attempt it and guess what? I loved it!  Once I finally got the hang of it, I was hooked.  I used my add-a-quarter ruler for the first time also and it works like a charm with this technique.  My project list just doubled! Which F&P magazine did this appear in?  This one will definitely go on my to-do list!
