Fairies & Daisies toddler quilt

Toddler quilts are so much fun!  This fairy quilt was designed using Electric Quilt 7 software.
It was pieced on an old Bernina 930 sewing machine.
 Stitching the four patches.
 The fabric is 100% cotton, the fairies have sparkles!
The fairy blocks are 10.5 inches so this quilt goes together really quickly. 
The green and orange fabrics make the fairy blocks pop!
The ribbons are basted on the sashing then the outside orange border was stitched and overlocked.
The seam was pressed to the border side and zig zagged stitched flat.
 The rest of the seams were pressed open and flat.
Hand drawn daisies.
With a dark Sharpie marker I traced the daisy on tulle in an embroidery hoop. Using a purple fade away marker the design was transferred to the pink fabric blocks and free motion quilted.
The quilting designs are easier to see on the backside.
 Daisy flannel back.
I used the free motion quilting designs: daisies, heart-shaped leaves, loop d loop, butterflies and spirals.
 The binding has a decorative star design. 
Happy stitching all.
