Launching my new Daisy-A-Day block of the month today!


NOTE: I've also shared this on my other website, The Stitchery Club over HERE

Welcome to my newest membership-only block of the month, Daisy-a-Day! This is actually a remake and expansion on a much simpler quilt I made in 2013. I was never really happy with it back then, and knew one day I’d give it a complete makeover with more detail and more blocks, and now it's ready to reveal.

First of all, let me tell you about the Daisy-a-Day quilt. Measuring 38.5” x 49.5” it comprises a simply pieced set of twelve hand embroidery and applique blocks.

I chose a very basic bordered layout as the embroidered blocks are rich in detail and remain the sole focus of your completed quilt. After all, you want your handwork to shine after the many hours invested over the course of our nine-month journey with needle and thread.

I hope you decide to stitch along with this project and have fun along the way!

Membership runs for nine months. As a soon as you join, I will email you the first double block as a gift to get you started while you wait for the regular monthly block to be emailed on the 25th of the month from November 25th (2022) - July 25th (2023).

I encourage you to raid your fabric stash to make Daisy-a-Day. My main fabrics are from an older line by Tilda called “Woodland”. I have used just four prints from that range for this quilt. In addition to those fabrics, I gathered scraps from my stash for some of the applique sections. If you have some favourite prints which have never found their home in a quilt, perhaps this is the time to let them shine. 

Here's a look at all the blocks you'll be stitching (in order)...

The free gift of blocks 1 and 12 (they are a reverse copy of each other) you'll receive via email within 12 hours of joining the BOM membership...

Month 1

Month 2

Month 3

Month 4

Month 5

Month 6

Month 7

Month 8

Month 9

Month 9 also includes the quilt assembly instructions + a sweet label to embroider and sew to the back of your completed quilt.

I plan on hand quilting Daisy-a-Day, but as we live in the tropics of Northern Australia that pastime will be delayed until mid-autumn (late April) when things begin to cool slightly. 
This is why the binding is not shown in the photo of the completed quilt top, however, I plan on using either more of the green floral fabric, or a scrappy binding using all the fabrics used in the quilt block borders.


PLEASE NOTE: Memberships to this BOM close on November 24th, 2022 

The designated monthly PDF pattern for each block will emailed to you on the 25th of each month, beginning November 2022, and ending July 2023.

 I'd love for you to stitch along with me over the next nine months! 

Bless you heaps,

Thanks, Jennifer. I'm going to prep some things tomorrow and see what I come up with for fabrics. I will stitch, but slowly, behind everyone else. LOL, but I also know my hands are not steady and it won't be my usual standard. It doesn't matter. It's the doing that counts. I went back and looked at the 2013 pattern. I still like it, but I like the new one with the appliqué in it, too.

These are simply charming, Jenny! I'm so glad you're still designing such sweet pieces. They're each reminiscent of gentle days and a more romantic way of life. I bet you'll have hundreds of participants in this along. Enjoy it.
