Daisy for Rene for November

Daisy for Rene for November by Lynne @ Lilys Quilts

Since I've been seemingly colosally underproductive since joining Fat Quarterly at the start of November, I am jumping at the chance to show something new here.  This afternoon I made this block for Rene Luv 2 Kreate as her block for the VIBees bee I am in with her and others. She sent us some white and some green and blue fabrics and we were pretty much left to choose what we wanted to do after that. So I designed this 12" block - paper pieced in four 6" square sections with a circle appliqued on at the end. I hope you are all enjoying a relaxing and happy festive season.

  14. Wow, the construction is ingenious. Adding the circle last as applique takes the wrinkles out of the project for me. Did you create the paper piecing yourself or use another block as a starter?
