Daisy, the quilt that started it all.

This quilt ,a design by Kellie Wulfsohn, is the quilt that made me really want to take the next step from mid – arm quilting, I spent months machine appliqueing and embroidering the flowers, leaves and stems on to the background. There was no way with the limited space on the mod – arm was going to be able to quilt around all the flowers and stems I also did not want to go back to quilting it on my domestic machine.

I did practice a lot on my new longarm a lot before I plucked up the courage to quilt this top.

I used nice bright white batting as the white background of the quilt is white muslin and a cream batting would have dulled the white, I did a swirly pattern with bright white thread and outlined the leaves. I was so nervous quilting this top and it took me a long time.

But it was worth it, I love the look of the quilt but most of all I love the feel of it, its very soft, I splashed out and used a pink Kaffe Fasset backing.

Above I was trying out different ideas for the binding, in the end I went with the green.
