~Daisy-Do~ my new BOM for July-August-September-October!

I won't spoil the fun by showing you any blocks before July 1st, but I will share some sneak peeks...
...and I can tell you what supplies you'll need.
One fat quarter of print fabric of your choice (I chose some Amy Butler)
1 skein pansy coloured variegated thread (I used Cottage Garden's *Pansy*)
1 skein variegated browns thread (I chose Cottage Garden's *Blackwood*)
1/3 yard (1/3 metre) white homespun or white quilter's muslin
1/3 yard (1/3 metre) backing fabric
1 small jar red/brown glass seed beads
4,  3/4" diameter mother-of-pearl buttons
2, 5/8" diameter mother-of-pearl buttons
26, 1/2" diameter mother-of-pearl buttons
...you will also need wadding, Vliesofix (for applique), and Whisperweft to back the stitched blocks.
When I had finished it, this was all that was left of my Amy Butler fat quarter. Amazing!
If you'd like to spread the word about my new FREE BOM, you can pop this button on your blog sidebar linking back to me.
Daisy-Do is a 4 month completely free BOM, starting July 1st. It's sweet, and you may want to make a few for Christmas gifts. 
Hugs
Jenny

It's always nice to receive feedback on a blog post, so *thank you* for taking time to comment!
I will try to reply via email unless you are a 'no reply blogger' which means you'll have to check for my reply in the comments. Of course, life is a rather hazardous activity, isn't it? So if I don't respond to your comment that's the reason why - life simply stepped in...
hugs
Jenny
