Red Poppy

I am Oh So Fond of this quilt. At first I was a little intimidated. I was unsure what quilting design would complement the fabric. As soon as I hung it up my husband took one look at it and said "circles all over". Sometimes it is a surprise where our ideas and inspiration come from. He was oh so right, I Love the circles.  Ready, Set, Go.............. I like to start quilting inside the border of the quilt.  First I Circled away,  I used 5 different size circles on this quilt.  Then the Turquoise Feathers and straight lines.  My straight edge ruler helped a lot.
 In the corners a cursive C was added.  The quilt will be gifted to a lady that her name begins with C.

The Back is so Pretty
