Rachaeldaisy has become synonymous with bold, colourful, eye popping quilts. and it’s no wonder after 20 years of being a florist experimenting and mastering colour and form.


Whilst honouring the tradition of quilting she continues to find fresh ways and new techniques to interpret conventional designs. Her use of 3D elements such as folded fabric and gathering techniques, mix of fabrics such as cotton, linen, wool felt, denim result in beautiful and unique textured work.

The Snake and the Waratah

One day I was walking along my favourite bush path. I came around a corner and there was a snake! My first ever sighting of a snake in the wild! Not just a snake but a venomous red belly black snake. My heart raced but I calmly stood until finally the snake uncurled and slithered away. I ignored my fear
and the urge to race home and with a deep breath I continued walking.


A little further down the path, around a corner, I spied a bright red Waratah!
My first ever sighting of a Waratah in the wild! Its impact was as strong as the snake’s presence but this time for joy. To see such majestic beauty was a precious reward for continuing to walk and not giving in to fear.
