three day quilt...kinda

this quilt was an awesome exercise in sewing outside the lines. i wanted to practice my applique again; and, i love poppies - so i thought this would suit both urges.
the background was super fast sewing;
the applique pieces were fast as well;
but, the bulky fabric made the app. edges hard to sew with a little brother machine...
hence, the "sewing outside the lines" comment.
i went out of bounds a few times; but, i think it adds to the laid-back/comfy feel of the overall design.

this is not my normal color scheme; but, i wanted to try my hand at something a bit more sedate. you know, just to see if i could do it...what do you think?


  1. Not sure you can call this quilt sedate.... but it is beautiful! I need to try more applique too.

  2. You did a great job! SOOOOO pretty :) Love the fabric
