ALL MISSOURI DAISY BLOCKS

Here is a picture of all the blocks for my Missouri Daisy Quilt:

Here is another view:

Now all I have to do is figure out how I want to piece the blocks together. I have been cutting strips all afternoon, so as soon as I get it laid out again with the strips, I will post a picture. In the magazine it says just to "bump" each block together, but I think it would more interesting if I used strips made out of the daisies and stars. What do you think??

Open to suggestions,


Hugs to All,

  1. I think the addition of strips of fabric used in the quilt blocks is a very good idea. Plus it will make your quilt a bit bigger.

  2. I think it's all a matter of personal preference, but I'd use sashing strips and not have the stars all bumped up together. This is going to be a very pretty quilt. I know you have been working on it for a long time.

  3. I agree the sashing would probably show up your stars more as they are gorgeous and needs to be seen in its full value.

  4. I agree with the idea of sashing. I think it would show off your stars more.
    It is going to look great. Great colours and pattern.

  5. I'm not sure what I would do... I really like the traditional look of a close setting without sashing but sashing could look good if it was a light color that didn't distract from the blocks. I love this pattern and have been looking for directions to make one. Where did you find it??
