Catching up after a very long break, a few quick posts about the few little quilts I have managed to make in this period.

This is a variation on the poppies workshop sample at a larger scale - the flowers are made with tulle (netting), which is pre-gathered and partially stitched to the background. The background fabric is not quite as great as the one in the small sample, but it still works. I used a variety of colours for the poppies to add more interest, and added some 3D petals to make it more lively.

I really love poppies, but once in my life I saw a whole real poppy field, and it was an unforgettable fairytale experience. Luckily, some photos survive. My elder daughter is about three there, so it was some eight years ago.
