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
