Oopsie Daisy...

Today I wanted to show you another quilt...

It's the quilt we are all doing this year in Clothesline Club.

It's a perfect opportunity for me to use my huge 1930's collection...


And also several vintage feedsacks ....



I love the way that the quilt blocks are set on point ....



And incorporates applique as well as piecing.


My friend Judy brought hers to show at our meeting on Tuesday.
The pattern is called Oopsie Daisy by Darlene Zimmerman.....
Have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend my friends!

Wow, an absolutely amazing quilt! 1930s are my favorites, and so I always have a lot to see here on your blog, which is one of my favorite blogs. :-)

I love this quilt. I really like this one. It looks as if the background white is shiney...is it cotton? I love the colors and I am a huge feedsack fan.

Gasp.......it's beautiful! I have been collecting 30's fat quarters and am waiting for the perfect project or maybe just the perfect time! I have a dilemna....I can't decide whether to do my hexies in American Jane (have a good collection!) or 30's. Have a great weekend, we are going to the beach!

Absolutely adoring this quilt!! I love everything about it! However, I can't seem to find it on Darlene's site. Is it in one of her books? Because, I have all of her books...

Darlene said...

Lori, I have loved your work and I want to do your laundry basket. It is so colorful and happy. Ilooked for the pattern at Fig Tree. Is it in a book or by itself. Please email me with that info. Can't wait to see your next project. Laura Miller

What a lovely quilt! Don't believe I've ever seen that pattern before, but I love the way the flower petals overlap.

What a darling quilt. I LOVE all of the 30's and feedsack fabric. I especially love the applique flowers.

What a great quilt to use up those bits we hate to throw away, too. I love the little flower. Her quilt is fantastic. I'm sure yours will be too.

Sherry said...

Very lovely Lori- I have the pattern in my collection of "to do" patterns- my list just gets longer and longer VBS.. There are just so many beautiful designs out there- not enough time.. Perhaps I will get my time organized better yet. I have read about quilters who quilt for an hour a day- it sounds like a great plan. Perhaps over the summer I will get that going- my work life is too busy right now...
Thanks for sharing..
Regards,
Anna

Lori,
If I ever see you in person, I am going to KISS YOU! I just want you to know that after several attempts and giving up in frustration...I found your tutorial and made my very first hexie flower today! I am so excited! I have wanted a Grandmother's Flower Garden quilt since I was a little girl. I was in love with all things vintage before it was cool to be in love with vintage LOL

So thank you for your tutorial, and showing me the tips to make these slippery little stinkers easier to manage!

Hi, I came over from stash management. I love this! It's a beautiful way to use a big variety of 30s fabrics. I always love studying how people do these - looks like you went easy on the reds and no blacks. It's just beautiful.
