Next Project - Decadent Victorian

Here is the pattern and material for my next project. This pattern is called Daisy Chain and it is out of the book called Jelly Roll Quilts. It is a fabulous book that contains about 16 quilt patterns and a bag pattern. I don't think there is a pattern in this book that I wouldn't do.
I have had this jelly roll for quite some time but just couldn't figure out what to make with it so I've finally decided on this pattern.
I am going to use the solid light sage green as the background material rather than the white shown in the picture and I'm thinking about using the mauve polka dot material as a peeper and the paisley as a small border. The finished size without the border will be 47 x 68 so I'll probably just put a 3 or 4 inch border on it because I'd like to keep it smaller.
I'm finding I have more quilts that are larger and not so convenient to decorate with so I'd like to get some going that are on the smaller side and easier to keep laying around. Have a great day :O)

Hi Lisa,
Love the colours in your Fabulous Fall quilt - really nice - and the colours in your new jelly roll too. Is the quilt in your header/banner one of your own, because I love the colours in that one even more and would like to see the whole thing if was possible please?? :0)

I love the Decadent Victorian. The colours are gorgeous. I have made a quilt out of the jelly roll and it come up really nice. I like the book you have. What is the front cover like? It looks like it has some nice patterns in it. I like the one you are going to make.
