Exciting News! My first pattern is now available.

This is an exciting time here at Daydreams of Quilts! I have been working every spare moment to bring my dream of having a pattern shop to life. Today I get to share with you that my first ever PDF embroidery pattern is available in my Payhip Shop. My pattern is called Kawaii Cacti. It includes stitch and thread colour suggestions but it’s up to you how you want to stitch it.

“Kawaii Cacti” an embroidery pattern by Anita LaHay at Daydreams of Quilts.

Kawaii means “cute” in Japanese. There was some debate in our house about the little ball cactus in the middle. My kids thought she had been prickled by one of her prickles and I thought she was trying hard to grow her flower on her head. Either way, she’s cute! Isn’t she? 🙂

If you’ve never embroidered before I am going to have some teaching tutorials and stitch along on the blog starting this week. So grab your pattern and supplies and lets make something cute! More patterns will be coming soon.


  1. It is just so sweet and 'cute'! It's been years and years since I have embroidered anything…this makes me want to start back up!

  2. Thank you so much Jayne for this lovely comment! I really appreciate your support. 🙂 I have a pin cushion pattern coming soon in the same theme. (It's just being tested right now). I have quilt ideas too but those take more time to get out there.
