Daisy needle case

I do not have a lot of free time, but I managed to squeeze in making this needle case.

I quilted it simply in the ditch with 12 wt Aurifil thread.

As always, one of the most difficult things was deciding which fabrics to use, and that involved pulling everything out of the cupboards, looking it over, choosing a few, putting some back, changing my mind and repeating the process a few times. I got there in the end. If it is that difficult for small projects like this, imagine the time involved in choosing fabrics for large projects!

The thing I knew before starting was that I wanted to use the daisy print as the background fabric.

The daisy print for the background was an obvious choice for me.

The pattern is from Suzuko Koseki’s Playful Patchwork. Suzuko pieces her daisy, but I chose to appliqué mine because I can appliqué in my sleep. She uses a very small magnet closure – something I would struggle to find locally – so I used a snap for a quick finish.

Laid out flat, it looks like this.

Because you can never have enough plaid.

I was inspired by Sunny Day Supply’s version, among others.

Do I keep it or give it away?

  1. I’d be keeping it, myself. I have at least three needlecases, but I can never resist just one more… Such a pretty design. How on earth is that binding attached – or is it not binding at all?
