    Beautiful! Could you baste some tear away interfacing over the poppies and talk her into quilting it anyway? lol

    could you remove the poppy(organza), have it quilted and then put the poppies back together?

    I love poppies, and your quilted interpretation of them is awesome! What a fantastic quilt!

    PS Even if it can't be long armed, it seems you or someone could FMQ it on their machine, which would go a lot faster than trying to hand quilt the whole thing! Bet someone on the board could do it for you. (I've done a few little things that way, but not experienced or good enough to offer my services!)

    This is an adorable quilt. Someone will be able to quilt it by freehand. Please show it again.

    I don't think that would work because the stems are silk cordiing to.I am just going to have to bite the bullet,get out of my comfort zone and hand quilt it,I need to try different things,you know push my bounderies

    Love it. Can you remove the poppies, let her quilt it and then put them back on again?

    I don't think I am that good to do a tute,,I just cut my ribbon,hand stitched around the bottom and pulled it tight to gather,I had to hem my joints because of the organza,I tried different lenghts of ribbon till I was happy with the look.When I find the magazine I will email you where to find it at,Sorry

    What a "to-die-for" quilt. Don't let this one be an UFO for too long. It is just gorgeous.

    The stems are silk[?] cording like you buy at craft stores on spools. When i get home later I will look and see if I can find the pattern.It was very easy.I sewed the cording in the seams of my blocks and added the poppies after the quilt was together, the directions were really easy,I'm sure you could buy the kit,but I improvised
