All done....I cannot remember the last time I spent a day and completed a quilt! Feels great!


I realized that when I initially narrated these photos that I did not include that I did a switch-er-roo. Yesterday morning I went to the quilt shop to buy some fabric to add to my quilt with the mini poppies and wonky lines but when I got home....spoke of a different quilt. SO, with $9 of fabric and some fusible web, I cut out the large poppies and put them on a new background, used the little poppies that I have in stash and poof! A inexpensive quick quilt that measures about 24 x 36. Maybe little smaller.

I have always been intrigued by an art quilt that has a part of it extending beyond the outer border. Seemed like a good day to try it out. But to bind it, I may need some help! And the whole time I am piecing I am thinking, what will Green Fairy do with this piece?

Ahhhhh, CELEBRATING an uninterrupted day of quilting!

Lovely quilt. The fabric is brilliant - looks a bit like Laura Gunn poppies although the background is different. Whatever it is it is stunning. xx
