Daisy, daisy, tell me your answer true...

pattern source piecemealquilts
The RSC2015 color is green for the month of May.

This is May's cow block... in greens!

I call her Daisy for the flowers on her head and her nose.

Sorry about the wrinkles but honestly I couldn't be around this block long enough to really iron it.
This is an Adolescent block... it refused to work with me,  would not do what I wanted it to do, did not want to do ANYTHING I asked of it. Rip. Rip. Rip again.

Let's just look at the pretty fabrics, shall we?
Check out the little dragonflies and butterflies swirling around her body!
The little flowers on her tongue.
Note the bluebells and bees on her ears! Bees are attracted to flowers, you know.
I am considering making the fence with the fabric along the bottom here, a field of daisys showing thru the white fence (imagine if you will)
This is a shot with a little dragonfly head ornament

It's not appliqued on yet... what do you think?

I know the bluebell fabric doesn't really match tone wise but I kept picking it up so finally used it.

  1. I think the dragonfly is a great touch. Some blocks just give you fits, but in the finished quilt, the angst will be forgotten. Hopefully....

  4. I thought only pigs wore that shade of lipstick? But I guess if your name is Daisy you can pretty much do whatever you like.

  10. This is clearly a cow with character: she's already given you a hard time, she does what she wants: give her the dragonfly on her forehead! I think she has style, like all the others in the meadow. Fun!

  13. Hi LeeAnna!
    I've known a cow or two with an attitude like that!
    Good thing there are resaurants with golden arches that can accomodate them!
    The drangonfly is a nice touch, maybe try placing her lanidng on top of Daisy's head like the clover on Miss purple cow?
    This is going to be quite a great quilt!
    Take care,
    Joanne

  20. I love Daisy. I think she should go "Bollywood" and you should add a crystal (or two) to her Dragonfly element!

    Maybe you could do fence sashing when your cowgirls are done!

  27. Fun block, and so full of all different fabrics--but everything works! I wouldn't change a thing. All the ripping was worth it for the finished block

  35. Oh, the bluebell fabric looks wonderful with all the others! I also like your idea of the daisies behind a white fence. Adolescent block! Have to remember that one. She is a cutie--and I bet she knows it.

  38. Hi Leanne! My husband referenced your post and copied your watermarked image for his WIP blog going out tomorrow on Freshly Pieced and Let's be social. Is that OK? We are giving you full credit, but it inspired him in his first quilt. Obviously, if you don't like the post, we can redact the post, and edit your image out. Let me know!
