Good Morning, Quilters!
What’s poppin’ in YOUR garden this week?
The only thing blooming in my yard so far…dandelions! But even that is a welcome sight after months of Minnesota snow!
THE DAISY POP
Today we have a really fun floral motif that will add texture to your quilts–The Daisy Pop!
There are three types of contrast that help show off our quilting…
Daisy Pop takes advantage of Density Contrast. By stitching a large, open circle surrounded by echo stitching and small petals, the circles POP off the quilt creating a pretty flower and pretty texture.
DAISY POP MACHINE QUILTING TUTORIAL
No marking is required for this motif–the center circles do not need to be perfect. If you are more comfortable marking, do so as you go. The circles here are approximately the size of a spool.
Begin by stitching a clockwise circle.
For most of the flowers, there will be a short “stem”…
So stitch clockwise and counter clockwise to avoid stitching over the stem.
Closely echo stitch the circle 2-3 times.
Add scallops around the circle.
This motif seems so happy to me. It would look great on any child’s quilt, summer quilts, a table runner, pillows….
Where will YOU add Daisy Pop?
We’d LOVE to hear!
