Red Poppies in the Horizon

I am inspired:



As a native Californian I have been seeing orange Poppies my whole life.  I don't know why I have not noticed these red ones until recently :P.  Well - it was love at first sight.  I knew I must do something to incorporate these red poppies into a design.

So here goes my first Red Poppy quilt. 



Don't mind the messy Poppy flowers- promise that it'll be more 'refined' by the final design :).  I can't wait to get started on this project.  More progress to come...

The red poppies are pretty but I've always loved the silky texture of the golden California poppy. Hard to beat a vibrant green hillside resplendent with blue Lupine and California gold poppies.
I do miss California and wish it weren't so expensive to live there. In the late 60's we bought a 2 story house in Thousand Oaks, paid $30,000 for it. Sold it 4 years later, due to my hubby's job transfer to the West Indies, and we got just over $54,000 for it. 10 years later that same house sold for $600,000 and someone told me it is now worth over a million. Hard to believe.
