Daisies and Rick Rack

I saw this quilt at a county fair about 5 years ago. I loved it, found the fabric and began making it. Bill wasn't too crazy about it so I made it into two donation quilts. I have finished one so far and it went to Sarah's quilt ministry. The 2nd quilt is one row smaller.

This next quilt I put together so Bill's cousin, Pat, could practice on it using the long arm.

Excuse the mudding paw prints at the bottom of the picture. Pat gave this to her friend for her new grandbaby. I got the kit on sale at Keepsake Quilting last year. The kit included the panel, the batting and the backing. The blue robots were suppose to be for the backing but I wanted the quilt to be a bit wider,  I had some fun flannel that was used for the backing instead. I have three more of these kits to make. The aliens were just too cute to pass up.

Totally Decaffeinated

Finished this quilt today!
It is from the book "Coffee-Time Quilts". I am not a coffee drinker so I really should change the name. I even used the same colors as the quilt in the book. I love this quilt. It measures 100 x 107. I like the look of the stacked log blocks. I also made the small stars smaller than the pattern called for as I wanted to use up a bunch of 2.5 inch squares I already had. It was a easy quilt to put together. Almost 23 yards of fabric went into this quilt.

The background fabrics are whites, beiges and creams, not greens like the photo shows.
