This is the quilt I made for our middle daughter, Celeste. She is the one who encouraged me to blog about the things I make, and actually got me going. She has a blog too---it's at: cottagedreamers.blogspot.com--she is much better at it than I am. It's nice to be able to call her if I have questions. I know I should have many more questions, but I'm just not there yet.
I named this one Daisy Chain.
I love daisies, so I designed and appliqued these, AND I love yellow in quilts. (It's a little hard to live with on the walls though. I've tried patches of yellow on my walls and it just wears me out.) I tried to make my girls quilts somewhat similar in color and borders--you know--sister quilts. When the first two daughters were small I made them a lot of matching clothes.
One Sunday afternoon my husband dressed the girls for evening church service while I was at choir practice, and-----
you would think he would notice something wasn't right. The ladies in the choir got a good laugh. This makes good memories. Anyway-----Here is a close up of one of the daisies.
