Day 361 - Daisy Flow

Remember Poseidon’s Eye and Globes of Matrix? I started wondering about these designs the other day and if I could use any other designs in the center of those large circles.

Here’s what happens when you use Super Daisy in those areas instead:

free motion quilting | Leah Day4 more designs to go and I've saved some of the best textures for last! Make sure to check out this post and share you #1 most important quilting question. You'll find out why in a few days :-)

Difficulty Level - Advanced. Yes, this design does look kind of tricky, but it’s actually just a simple variation of Poseidon’s Eye! First try that design and once you get the hang of it, Daisy Flow should be no problem at all.

Design Family - Branching. This design is created by branching out with a long flowing line, then swirling into a large circle. Fill this circle with Super Daisy, then swirl out and around and echo this shape many times. The more times you echo around each circle, the more they will stand out on the surface of your quilts.

Directional Texture - All Directions. You really can’t beat this swirling, whirlwind of a texture! Try quilting this on a really big scale for a dramatic effect over your whole quilt.

Suggestions for Use - We’ve learned many daisy designs throughout this project. Why not make a quilt combining them all? Use Super Daisy to fill the blocks, Dresden Daisies to fill the sashing, and Daisy Flow to finish off the borders to make one gorgeous quilt.

  1. I've really liked these last couple of designs this past week. What will happen to all of these posts (with videos) once you get to 365?? I'm hoping that they will stay on your website so that we can refer back to them as we need to...
