Welcome to Day 1 of Quiltmaker’s Back to School Party! I’m so glad you’re here. Each weekday through Sept. 16 will be full of fun! A free quilt pattern (sew along with us!), tips and techniques, freebies, giveaways, fabric sponsors and more will be featured. To get started, see Back to School Party Preparations.

There will be several posts each day of the party. Be sure to poke around so you don’t miss anything like a surprise giveaway, a great tip or a freebie. Toward the end of this post you’ll find the first of seven beautiful versions of Dozens of Daisies, each one from a fabric sponsor. Today’s fabric sponsor is Clothworks.

  2. Lynn Telke says:

    This quilt would be great in a purple and green color scheme with white petals
    and a touch of yellow.

  3. Lisa says:

    There are so many possibilities with this design ~ how about coral, yellow and green?

  5. Nora Lee Condon says:

    So many different colors could be used with this pattern, so no two quilts would look the same!

  6. Cari Marshall says:

    I bought 1/2 pieces of some brown/pink/turquoise paisley, dots, and striped fabrics. I am going to make them work for the 5/8 pieces needed by “scrapping” the pattern up a bit or just cutting down the number of squares… not sure yet. Love the pattern!

  7. Henria O. says:

    I’m really liking the combination of yellow, black and gray right now. That would be my pick. Michael Miller has a really great Citron gray collection right now.

  8. allgoodthings says:

    I am currently on a red, white and black kick. I am hoping that I chose well.

  9. Deb says:

    I’d pick purple, green, white, yellow, and pink.

  10. Joanne Barry says:

    I like Carols comments about daisies, I have some daisy fabric somewhere so I may have to think about that one too! I hope that Carol can post a pic of hers.

  11. Joanne Barry says:

    When I looked at the fabric suggestions I thought of using some nice soft warm rose colours with soft pinks & a light green, but when I went thru my fabric stash I was drawn to a print with blues & olive greens in. I found some lovely co-ordinating light & mid blues & light & dark olive greens which I think will look great. I am still considering the rose colours, so I might just have to make two!

  12. Carol says:

    I can see this quilt in bright yellow, black, and white. Very striking! I have a piece of black fabric with white daisies (yellow centers) on it. I think that would be the 6″ squares and other yellows, blacks, and white would work around that.

  13. Helen says:

    I want to do a Christmas theme quilt! So am using red, green and black.

  14. Pat V. says:

    My color choices would be red, pink, blue, white and green.

  15. Ray J says:

    I just found this fun quilt-to-make quilt. Altho it’s called Dozens of Daisies, I think I’ll call mine Dozens of Flowers and use a black/red/white/green floral with beautiful roses printed on it for my focus fabric – used as the border. I will pull colors from this for my other fabrics. The petals will be red.

  16. Lucinda Fenske says:

    Since it has the theme of daisies, I’m thinking white petals, yellow in center blocks, perhaps with green or black accent fabrics, maybe both!
