Another Daisy Mae and a giveaway!

Cover full
McCall’s May/June issue 2014.

One of our patterns is in the recent McCall’s Quilting magazine! Woo hoo!





Daisy-Mae-flat-600pxThey called her Daisy Mae- isn’t she cute?


We used fabrics from Robert Kaufman Fabrics- I just love how she came out!





When we designed the quilt, we wanted the flowers to spin a little and the gray squares to form a pinwheel, but you can change the rotation of the blocks and make it look different. Play with it!


And, McCall’s gave us two magazines to give away! Leave a comment at the bottom of this post and tell us what color you would make your flowers and you will be entered into our drawing to win a copy of the May/June McCall’s Quilting magazine. There are lots of great quilts in this issue. And a bonus CD with 18 scrappy projects! How cool is that?

happy quilting,

  1. I would want to do it in the very same colors. Those are very striking colors and appeal to me.

  2. I’d like to see the background in white, the checks in gray and black and the flowers in turquoise and yellow.

  3. I like it as pictured. I think it pops really nicely, But I would also consider shades of turquoise and robin’s egg blue for the checkered background, and poppy orange for the flowers.

  4. I love red so I wouldn’t change the flowers. I would probably make them with wool instead of cotton though.

  5. I really like the red! I might however be tempted to make it a little more coral to be a bit more summery!

  6. I would make this quilt in the 30’s reproductions fabrics. My favorite. Thank you for the opportunity to win a great give away

  7. I would make mine like the picture. I love the black and gray blocks and the red really pops against that background.

  8. I really like the red flowers! For my room I would want to add some aqua so maybe use aqua and white for background and checks.

  9. I would make the flowers a yellowish-gold and the centers dark brown to look like sunflowers! I have sunflowers all over the house and think the quilt would make a beautiful table cloth!

  10. I might make several colors of flowers, red, yellow, pink , purple whatever I find in my scrap bin.

  11. My flowers would be peach and yellow! Hummm, which one of my girls might like this one??? Thanks.

  12. I have liked your Facebook page! Thanks for lots of chances to win your great giveaway !

  13. I’d probably go with white daisies with yellow centers. Love the gray background.

  14. I would make my flowers pink with yellow centers. I love the gray in your blocks! I receive your newsletter and “like” you on Facebook too. Thanks for a chance to win.

  15. I would probably make my flowers purple- it’s one of my favorite colors!
    I also receive your newsletter, and “Like” you!! It would be a “Love” if Facebook would let me. 🙂

  16. The quilt would be great using cotton and wool. Just received your first newsletter and find it refreshing.

  17. I think I would use purple for the flowers. Thank you for a chance to win. I already receive your email newsletter and like your Facebook page.

  18. Having seen how pretty your quilt is, red seems like the only choice. But my cousin’s daughter loves purple so I might make her a quilt with violets dancing across it.

  19. I get your newsletter, saw this quilt on line, fell in love with it, would love to win the magazine!!

  20. I love the quilt with the red flowers and I think they really stand out with the dark background!

  21. I like working with pastels and would make my flowers pink or aqua with a white background…Love yours though. Lots of great work. Congrats on being in McCalls Magazine.

  22. I would probably make these flowers in magenta. Thanks for the opportunity to win! (if I’m not too late . . .)
