My Wild Child

I never had wild child, thank goodness. I finished 3 quilt tops this week and this is one of them. Called "Wild Child Argyle". You'll get the name when you see the whole thing.
This little wall hanging is called "Coming Up Daisies" from BHG American Patchwork and Quilting August 2005. The fabric is Wild Flowers by Heather Mulder Peterson.

Here's the original pattern. I made a few changes -First figuring the rotary cutting measurements for all the pieces. I added quarter-square triangles in the inner border to finish out the design, chose a slightly different applique flower and eliminated the applique on the border by using the printed fabric.

Last month I won a $50 gift certificate to Fat Quarter Shop and bought Weekends by Erin McMorris. I love this line, especially the bicycle print. They also have the fabric line at Jackman's. I'll be there tomorrow, buying a backing for this! The pattern is The New Wave Quilt by Elizabeth Hartman.

Do you think I better do some quilting next week??

Come back on Tuesday for the book drawing! I'll also be posting the directions for the red and white block. Have a happy holiday!!


  1. These are wonderful, fun, bright, and cheery quilts. Love them all. Great job, well done.

    Have a super great weekend.

  2. Love them all especially your rendition of Coming Up Daisies! Can't wait to see them quilted. I have a lot of fabric in that 'teal?' colour and have been stuck with what to match it with (except for brown, which is not for me) so seeing the red and yellow - yahoo!

  3. Cindy,
    from what I see that is a really cool wild child.Your quilts just make me happy!! Hope I get some piecing done over this weeke -end. Have a happy 4th, God bless America!!!!!!!!!!

  4. Loved all the quilts. How did you get so much done? I have been working on 2 little baby quilts for over a week and finally discovered my BSR Foot needed upgrading. Now I am on a roll. I like the things from Fat Quarters Shop, thanks for the info


Thanks so much for taking time to comment!
