It feels like the whole world is blooming with beautiful flowers this week! Let's add more pretty flowers to the mix as we quilt our Daisy Dresden Plate block:
I spiced up the center of my Daisy Dresden Plate by adding Microstippling in the center circle and space between the middle rings. I love finding spaces like that within a block to stitch it up a notch. See what I mean in this new video:
What did you think of quilting circles with a ruler foot and circular rulers? I do find this a bit challenging, particularly when the ruler is on the outside and I'm quilting the circle to the inside like it was in the beginning of this video.
I prefer to quilt with the ruler to the inside of the foot so I can swing the block around it and then remove the ruler easily to quilt inside of the shape. Definitely give it a try and let me know which way you like best!
My favorite part of this block is the bouncy echoes in the background. I love adding simple texture in the background of a block and rows of repeated echoes always have a relaxing effect on a quilt.
What is your favorite part of this block? Do you have any questions on quilting it this week? Share your thoughts in the comments below!
