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.
Dozens of Daisies Part 1
If you still need to choose fabrics and plan your quilt, see the preparations post.
Today, Part 1 covers all of the cutting for this throw-size quilt designed by Joanie Holton and Melanie Greseth of TailorMade by Design.
NOTE: The C pattern is in the Part 2 post.
If you have questions about cutting, visit our Facebook page and post them there. We’ll do our best to answer anything that comes up.
