What A Day For A Daydream

 Daydream. Isn't the binding adorable?

I wasn't sure if I would ever finish this quilt. Last week was a no-sew zone at Happy Little Cottage due to various and sundry sewing machine malfunctions. It is amazing that a sewing machine can make a grown woman cry.

But this finished quilt makes me very happy!

I finally adjusted the good old Singer and was able to finish. I was convinced that I wanted to learn to stipple, but I think I may have gotten over that desire after dropping off my aunt's sewing machine at the repair shop AND discovering Red Pepper Quilts. Seriously, how awesome are her quilts. I love the simplicity of the straight quilting and how it really lets the fabric and patchwork shine!


  1. Its a sweet beautiful quilt, really, really love it :)

  2. Beautiful quilt, Debbie, I love the colours and the design. I find sewing machines have had that effect on me too - and they always seem to go wrong just when you need them most! I'm glad you fixed yours and finished this gorgeous quilt!

  3. Debbie, that is a gorgeous quilt! I love how it turned out and super sorry for the frustrations you had with the machine. What a stinker huh?!

  4. Debbie, such a beautiful quilt! Love your fabric, you find lovely fabric and colors! Sorry about the sewing machine, but you did it!!!! xoRobin❤

  5. GORGEOUS, and you should be so proud of yourself! Stippling looks very, very intimidating to me, too!

    Sewing machines have made me do more than cry! ((WINK!))

  6. I could just cuddle right up with this quilt!!
    So very pretty..

  7. Wow Debbie, this is just beautiful. I bet it feels wonderful to have it finished and you have to be wondering what took you so long. I love it all scrunchy and laundered perfect for cuddling with a cup of tea. Now all we need is fall weather!

  8. This is so beautiful! One of these simple squares quilts is on my list of things to try.
