On to Part 2 of the Dozens of Daisies quilt! Today’s post covers making the bands and the block Y’s. Have fun!
Dozens of Daisies Part 2
Join 2 fabric #1 strips with a fabric #2 strip as shown below to make a band A. Cut the band at 21⁄2″ intervals to make 12 unit 1’s.
Download and print the C pattern here: QM_DozensofDaisies-applique. Check to be sure it printed at the correct size by measuring; the petal should be 3 1/4″ tall. Prepare the petals (C) for fusible applique.
Fold a block Y in half horizontally, vertically and diagonally and lightly crease the folds.
Use the applique placement diagram and the creases as guides to arrange the petals on the block and fuse in place. Use matching thread and a small zigzag stitch to sew around all of the petals. Repeat for all the block Y’s.
Today’s fabric sponsor is FreeSpirit. FreeSpirit provided fabrics from the Taza line by Dena Designs to make this pretty version of Dozens of Daisies. This quilt was made by Nicole Brouillette, a member of the Back to School sewing team.
