Daisy Dance: Finished!

My HMQS challenge quilt is finished!!

I signed up to participate in the ADORNit fabric challenge for HMQS, which is in Salt Lake City May 8-10.  I decided to sign up to give myself a reason to go down to the show.  It's 3 hours away from us, and it would be easy to talk myself out of it!

I'm so excited to go down there!  Not only to see my quilt in a show, but my daughter lives down there, also.  It's always nice to have an excuse to visit her!  

Also, we'll be picking up my new longarm while we're there!  EEK!!  I can't wait.

This pattern is a tutorial from Jenny at Sew Kind of Wonderful, using her Quick Curve Ruler.  I love how this turned out!

Anyway, it was our spring break last week, and we woke up to snow on Sunday morning.  Like 6 inches of snow!  It worked out, because snow is the perfect backdrop for this colorful quilt!

I just love the texture of the quilting.

I named this quilt "Daisy Dance" because the flowers seem to dance over the quilt!

I bound it in one of the challenge fabrics, called Ticker Tape.

My daughter Megan was my photography assistant.  She's a little bit of a cheeseball!

She makes nice shadows.

But she doesn't like to hold quilts.

I had to make a label for this quilt, which I've actually never done in all my years of quilting!  It was stressful!

Thank you to all who commented so sweetly on my last post.  I appreciate all the kind words and encouragement!

Very nice, I like the pattern, I especially like the stitching on the petals of the flowers, it gives the quilt a lot of movement. Nice work!
