Vintage Daisy Quilt

Remember this? I think I’m finally ready to quilt it. I debated for a long time about adding borders, but in the end, I decided to leave it as is. I don’t think the fabric in the blocks was prewashed and I’m concerned about uneven shrinking.

Now, how to quilt it! I played around with an app called Doodle to get some ideas. My first thought was an all over random grid.

Maybe swirls.

Maybe a grid that doesn’t go over the daisies.

Hmmmm…..maybe the straight lines?

Actually, I rather like the combination of swirls and grids.

I’ll have to think about that. But then, what about the daisies themselves?

Lots to think about here.

Have a great day!

  1. I always have the same problem when the big decision comes. I usually make the ‘final’ decision about four times.

  3. It will be fun to see what you decide on. I think you have some good ideas brewing. Thanks for the tip on the app. It’s very handy for drawing out those quilting ideas!

    Lovely colors, composition and overall design. What is your overall feeling about using the Doodle app? I have tried it, but still tend to print out copies of the blocks/top to doodle on with a pencil. Thanks for sharing!

  5. I’ve been watching to see what you do – I have a quilt almost exactly like this and it needs quilting too!

  6. I think I like a combination of swirls and grids, too. It will add a little punch to the vintage feel and make it really interesting.
