    Guild Challenge--Sunglasses Needed

    We are supposed to use our birth month flower (poppy) and gemstone (periodot) and make a quilt. I had seen some fabric with poppies that I really liked when I remembered this fabric that I bought when I first started quilting and hadn't really given a lot of consideration to many things, but it was inexpensive. It is called "Poppy Love" by Ro Gregg. So I used the panel and I had seen a Swirly Girls pattern that I really liked. So I worked up my own variation on EQ7 and went to work. Seems that I have been working on it for months with all the holidays. Anyway, here it is and it is bright. My DGD told me that there could be a hundred quilts and only one of mine and she could pick it out. A jeweler told me that there were several variations of the green color in periodot so this had green and I thought it would work. I see things I wish I had done differently, but I am considering it DONE! Hope everyone's New Year is off to a wonderful start.

    My birth stone is Periodot too. Yay for being born in August, and good for me I really like the color green too. Love your quilt. And now I know that the flower of the month is Poppy. Learn something everyday.

    Beautifully done! You did a great job of picking up the colors from your center panel to create the look of a field of flowers.

    What a fun idea for a challenge--I could do gold chrysanthemums.
    Courtesy is not optional.

    It's bright. It's bold and it's beautiful! Great job and great challenge.
    Never argue with an idiot. They'll drag you down the their level and beat you with experience.

    A fun challenge quilt! Nice design around the panel. Fun pinwheels.
    Be a blessing to others, as you may entertain angels unaware!
