Last Sunday was another one of those one night stands--one offnight in the middle of several on. I hate those. But I was able to put it to good use and finally started a wallhanging I have been wanting for a couple of years now. The pattern is in the June 2005 issue of American Patchwork and Quilting, though it is much larger, and uses green and white for the background rectangles, where I used pale blue and white squares.
It's ready to be sandwiched and quilted and I think I'm going to embellish this one a bit, since--it's for ME! Daisies are my favorite flower, and I have had that outer border fabric for several years now, waiting for just the right project. My one concern is that the pale gold inner border (which is actually just the reverse side of the daisy center) and the stems show through the white petals. Should I just leave it as is, or should I try to cover that up? And if so, how? Layer another white petal over it? Any suggestions would be appreciated!
Oh, and the movie trivia quote? It was spoken by Mel Gibson's character.
