Giant Daisy Quilt

My husband and I both enjoy decorating, and we are big fans of Sarah Richardson, a Canadian interior designer. She has had a few series on HGTV. On the last series, she bought a farmhouse and completely renovated each room. For one of the bedrooms she found this fabulous cheddar, or maybe chrome yellow, quilt. Isn't it dynamic? I know, the pictures could be better, but they were taken off of the television. The entire bedroom design was based on this quilt. I mean, how could you not? Quite a bit of hand quilting, too.
Haven't been doing any sewing at all lately. I've been busy, but hope to have some time free up soon. I'm keeping my fingers crossed!

I love this quilt! I've got the series recorded on my DVR because I just really really loved this house and the way it's decorated. Quite a few awesome quilts in it!! This one is just particularly happy I think! :o)

Great quilt! And I think the pictures were great for off the TV. I wouldn't have known.

I'm familiar with the Sarah Richardson series with the old farmhouse, but I must not have been watching very closely. I missed this quilt! It's such a graphic, bold decorating choice.

I saw that show and found it interesting that she used the quilt for inspiration for that particular room.

I loved that show! The farmhouse series is still on my DVR - I still haven't mastered my DVD recorder so I can put it all on disk.

She used quilts as focal points or color scheme enhancers in a few of the rooms which I though was really great.

I love this quilt! How can those sunflowers fail to make you smile? :0) You got great pictures too - from the tv?!? Lovely pictures of the handquilting.

I just saw a Sarah Richardson show yesterday and was really impressed with her taste. I talked to my husband about installing a banquette in my kitchen after seeing what she did. Would love to see what she did with the old house.

I thought this quilt looked familiar! I remember Sarah's victorian house series and recorded some of the segments. I was hoping to get some ideas for my old victorian.

I too loved her series. I even made my version of the red/white quilt. Love her shows and only wish there were new ones!

I've tried drawing the petals for this block but I can't get it right. Did you ever make this? I really would like to make this quilt.

I actually have an identical quilt just like this on my longarm now. A customer saw the same episode and wanted one for herself. It is beautiful!

Does anyone know where I could get the pattern to make a quit just like this? I've been searching for months!
