Daisy Crazy-A Machine Quilting Tutorial

Daisy Crazy, Machine Quilting Tutorial, Lori Kennedy

Good Morning, Quilters!

Are you crazy for daisies like I am?  If so, this motif is going to bloom in your quilted garden!

Daisy Crazy can be used as a single motif in the center of a block, stitched in a single row as a border, or stitched in multiple rows for a fabulous background.

DAISY CRAZY-THE MACHINE QUILTING TUTORIAL

Begin by drawing three parallel lines.  Begin stitching on the centerline.  Stitch a straight vertical line.  With a sideways figure “8” motion, add a pair of pointed leaves.

Stitch on the centerline then add another pair of pointed leaves.

Stitch 2-3 sets of leaves.

After the last set of leaves, stitch a long line.  Next, stitch a teardrop shape.

Stitch under the base of the teardrop, closely echo stitching the left side.  Add a rounded petal.

Add another rounded petal on the left side of the stem, then cross over to add two more rounded petals.

Complete the fourth petal, then stitch on the teardrop to the tip of the flower.  Stitch on the centerline to begin the next motif.

Or stitch back to the base of the teardrop and echo stitch the stem to begin the next motif in a row.

Don’t be a lazy daisy…

Doodle the Crazy Daisy before stitching it or else you’ll end up with an Oopsy Daisy!

Sometimes one has to amuse oneself…

Signed,

 

Your Ditzy Daisy Quilter,

Lori

  1. Lori, as a quilter and a plant lover, I have loved your Daisy motif. There is a plant called “Crazy Daisy” The flowers come out in all shapes, some with single white petals, others with multiple petals, others with such a mass of lacy petals that you can hardly see the yellow center. Leucanthemum × superbum ‘Crazy Daisy’. Enjoy!

We'd LOVE to hear! Please reply...
