Sweetie Pie Sew Along - Week Nine - Daisy Appliqué!

Hello cute people! 
Welcome to week nine:)

If you want to make my 
Sweetie Pie Quilt

Now that all of our
 Gingham Daisies 
are completed...
lets get them appliquéd!

I showed you
 last week that I
 worked with 1/2 of the
 quilt at a time.

I started by appliquéing 
the daisies around 
all of the edges. 

Use your seam lines
 to center the daisies.
The daisies measure 
1 3/4" from the edge.

After lining up...
I pinned and appliqued.

I worked all the way around
 the edges on both halves.

For the daisies in the
 middle of the quilt 
I used my 
6 1/2" Trim-It Ruler 
and lined up the lines 
with the seams...

Then placed the daisy underneath.

The lines on the ruler
 really help to 
make sure it's centered.

Now appliqué all of the daisies...

on both halves like this.

Now sew them together...

And finish the last four daisies!


Next week we will do 
the outside borders
 and I'll show you my finished

Beautiful!! I've laid mine out and hope to sew it together today. I've made mine smaller to fit our 'display' wall! We have a few super fruit lovers in the house.....and some who only love their fruit in pie form :) - so this quilt could not have been better designed for our home. Thank you, Lori!!

Thank you so much for sharing this awesome quilt. I've learned so much from reading your books and your tutorials. I really like the way you do your appliqué. I've only done it with heat and bond and sewn with a machine.
Do you appliqué your really small pieces (like a strawberry stem) the same way you do your larger pieces? Thank you so much. Looking forward to the next QAL.
