Daisies make me smile

Is this a cheery quilt, or what?! It reminds me of when Meg Ryan's character in "You've Got Mail" says to Tom Hank's character, "... don't you think that daisies are the friendliest flower?"
I received this quilt top [57" x 69"] to machine quilt. When I took the pressed top from the zippered garment bag and spread it out on the work table, it just made me smile. The golden orange and teal blue [complementary] color scheme gives it just the right amount of zing. And it has a perfect balance of patterns in the fabrics: a plaid, two small prints, a pin dot and a solid.

The appliqued "daisy" flowers were outline quilted to give them dimension and the rest of the quilt was free-motion stitched with leaves, vines and an occasional flower. 

When I asked my client to whom she was giving this quilt, she said, "I may just keep this one for myself." I hope she does.
