Remembrance Poppy

Lynn brought me this lovely "Remembrance Poppy" quilt.  The pattern is by Pam Bono Designs.  Lynn asked for custom quilting and I tried to keep a reasonably light hand to the quilting.  The challenging part of quilting this one was figuring our how to handle all the odd shapes in the borders and the background.

I decided to add some feathers in the yellow sections.  I added simple lines to enhance the poppies and leaves and filled the backgrounds with stipples and the outer border with some curls.

Even with dark green and red threads, my tension was playing nice and I was able to use a cream colored thread for the bobbin throughout the entire quilt.

I am very pleased with the end result and Lynn's face when she saw it for the first time told me she was too!


  1. Absolutely love this! Lynn's piecing and your quilting work so well together!!!
