beyond sew-alongs...

lest you think that's all the sewing getting done these days, here's a peek at the progress on daisy chain. 


no flash needed due to sun streaming thru the window this AM.  this is definitely going to be hand quilted once finished--and all the little center circles are appliqued too!  can u tell missing my big ironing board?  the little travel iron and a small corner of a small table are grossly inadequate for quality pressing but it's early days... this project, plus the 2 donation quilts i'm working on PLUS a few new projects too are keeping me as busy as i need to be.  swirling around is a scrappy DWR that i want to make too, but need to finish some things first.  hoping these will provide a detour from new fabric temptations....and have you seen "mostly manor" by victoria findlay wolfe?  love those stripes!  wondering how i can justify them....oops, change subject!  still spring-like here but back to late winter tomorrow in the ongoing weather boomerang!

  3. This one looks intense, Grace. Don't recall--is this machine pieced or handwork? How large do you plan on taking this one? It is incredible!

  6. Wow! Daisy Chain is a awesome pattern. It seems like a project that will take a while to finish, but will be an incredible journey with tons of scraps.

  7. Your daisy chain is beautiful! You are right about Victoria Findlay's fabric. It's gorgeous and now I want to order some but will try to refrain.
