Red Poppies FINISHED

Welcome Red Poppies :).

IMG_1930

After months of sewing, pressing (repeat repeat repeat), quilting and lots of distractions due to the holidays I finally got a chance to finish Red Poppies.

The poppies, buds, and steams are all raw edged appliques set in a white background.

Each area of the poppies are framed with matching fabrics.

The binding is a matching dark red fabric with a slight stripe and circular pattern...and check out my new labels in action :).

For the back of the quilt I used off white as the main fabric with a giant strip of a beautiful red floral fabric.

I am very excited about the way the quilt came out. It was my first time doing appliques on a quilt and I think I am a FAN :).

This quilt will be sitting on my quilt closet awaiting a new owner :).

Gorgeous quilt! I am totally in love with it!
In browsing your quilts I found out that we have similar taste in names. My second son is named Asher and my third son is named Silas. If you need a third boy name I can send you my oldest's name. :) Anyway, you obviously have great taste - in both quiltmaking and names. :)
