Welcome to last and best ;) day of the Quiltmaker's 100 Block Blog Tour. We could not be more thrilled to be a part of this awesome, awesome magazine, and stand along side of some of our favorite designers.
If you're new here, we'd love for you to stick around and stay awhile. We are a mother/daughter quilt pattern team and we have a lot of fun working together and creating fantastic quilt patterns.
Our block for this issue, is applique and a little stitchery- our most favorite combo. It's block #409, on page 28, called Lazy Daisies. We made this with Clothworks Shades line, which is a great line- just a little more fun and interesting than solids.
We decided to re-create this block in a pillow. For fun, we decided to match one of our favorite patterns, Little Red, and embroidered the recipients name on the block. We tried a monochromatic theme in red prints and it turned out BEAUTIFUL. I'm totally obsessed, I sort of wish "meags" was embroidered on it so I could squirrel it away for my own bed. *sigh* At least I like this Emma.
We debated for awhile, centering this block on a table runner with some fancy pinwheels - another fabulous idea that would be charming for spring and summer.
