The Wish design piece was created using white Ultra Sateen and cotton thread in cream and taupe shades. I did a little extra hand stitching in the dandelion "clocks", or seed pods, to give them a really interesting texture. This is a perfect size to tackle on your regular sewing machine, and have carefully outlined and illustrated the stitching sequence to assure your success.

For years I have wanted to create a dandelion design for machine quilting. Although on one hand they are a bane to my existence, on the other hand I am mesmerized by their delicate beauty. I have an area in my yard that grows dandelions in great abundance, and I swear that I get 20 more plants for each one that I dig up. But then again, at times I must reconsider all of my efforts to eradicate them and simply enjoy their beauty.
I worked on variations of this design for a full year before I was finally satisfied with my final design.
