Regular readers know the one. It’s a beautiful quilt but it has an identity crisis.
Joseph’s Coat / Waiting for Russell / Tea Leaf / Lover’s Knot /Lafayette Orange Peel… This traditional quilt pattern goes by all these names, but until now I’ve been fence-sitting, unable to decide what to call my particular version.
Several of us are working on the same pattern, and in the collage below you can see our fabric choices.
(Clockwise, starting with the top right photo) Jill’s, Lyn’s, mine and Gail’s.
Anne is making one too, using blue Kaffe fabrics.
I’ve finally finished enough circle blocks to make my quilt the same size as Sandra Dart’s “Waiting for Russell” pattern, but I’ve decided I want my quilt larger. 16 circles more ought to do it, and shouldn’t take me too long.
If I can find a couple of hours in the evening to stitch in front of the TV I can complete one of these daisy-shaped blocks a day.
So that’s what I think I’ll call my quilt – “Daisy a Day” What do you think?
