Dream Big - Daisy Mae Fabric Tour

I absolutely adore Poppie Cotton Fabric by my good friends Jina and Lori and so I was super happy to jump in and make a little something for their newest line Daisy Mae's Fabric Tour ;)    And I decided to make up something from Charming Baby Quilts, but with a twist I will share in a bit!!!   So, here it is, My Dream Big quilt from my new book Charming Baby Quilts!!!! 

 I really do love working with Poppie Cotton's!!!  The fabric is wonderful and the prints and colors in this Daisy Mae line is just so pretty!!!   I decided right away to pull the navy's out to make a scrappy binding so that all of the super soft pinks, whites, and yellows will just pop on the Country Confetti Basic Background.   And they did indeed just pop, and I love that!!!

And just like all of the quilts from Charming Baby Quilts, this Dream Big quilt is made with Charm Packs and goes together super quick.   In fact, because of some shipping delays, the background fabric didn't arrive until Tuesday evening.   Yup, I put this entire quilt top together yesterday, (and I even got the laundry done too :)    That is just how fun and fast these Charming Baby Quilts are.  And doesn't this Dream Big quilt just look so great in Poppie Cotton's!!!!

And remember how I mentioned twist . .  . Well this Dream Big quilt is going to get even Bigger!!!   I decided it would be fun to show how you can turn the Charming Baby Quilts into Charming Big Quilts ;)   So I plan to make 3 more Dream Big Baby Quilts and then sew them all together into one Dream Big Big quilt!!!   Won't that be so fun :)    I will share the quilt when it is all finished as well as the fabric requirements for a Dream Big Big quilt :)      It is going to be so pretty!!!

And since this quilt is getting bigger, it hasn't been quilted yet.   And that means I finally got to do one of those cool "stained glass window" effects picture ;)  Isn't it just so pretty!!!!   And I just love how it shows the wonderful contrast of the soft  Daisy Mae fabrics on the Country Confetti Basic Background. Makes me wish I  had a giant window for when this becomes a Dream Big Big quilt top ;)

And that is my Dream Big (soon to be bigger) quilt in the beautiful Poppie Cotton's.   I hope you love it as much as I do, and maybe make your own Dream Big quilt as well!!!   Just grab a copy of Charming Baby Quilts and you will have it whipped together in no time ;)    And I would love to see it when you do!!!    And if you want to make your's in Poppie Cotton's just like me, here is where you can find them ;)

Thank you so much to Jina and Lori for allowing me to play with these fantastic Poppie Cottons fabrics!!!   And for more  Daisy Mae fabric fun, be sure to Hop over to the Poppie Cottons blog  to check out more blogger goodies from this wonderful fabric blog tour :)

Thanks for popping in today and every day.  I am just so grateful to have this space to share my love of quilting!!!

I hope you all have a very Happy Quilting Day!!!

Oh, and one final note . . . I just wanted to thank you for all of the Pattern Love for my new Nordic Nights Pattern !!!   And just as a reminder, the Pattern and Templates will be on sale until Friday, so you still have 3 days to save :)    And wouldn't this Nordic Nights quilt look so pretty in this Daisy Mae fabric!!!!   

Pin It!


  1. Gorgeous fabrics. They WOULD look great in Nordic Nights.

  2. It's a beautiful quilt Melissa! I love that you used the black accent: it makes everything pop! Now I'm going to have to be looking for that fabric when it comes out! :-) Hugs, H

  3. I can't believe how quickly I received the Nordic Nights pattern and templates. I think it will be beautiful in denim-y blues and white. And I'm thinking about the larger Dream Big quilt, in batiks, since you let us know how you are making it bigger. Thanks for the inspiration!

  4. So very nice! I decided along time ago that the only way I’d ever make a queen or king quilt again would be using that very technique! Fortunately, I haven’t had to 😉


Thank you so much for your sweet comments. I just love hearing from you!!
Have a Happy Quilting Day :)
