    poppy quilt top

    I love this fabric and had a hard time cutting it up. It is such a big bold design. So, I finally picked the snowball pattern. Now, I've been stumped on how to quilt it. Lol...sometimes, quilting can be so difficult. I'm probably going to sit on it for a few more days until I can decide on how to quilt it.

    That's a great use of that fabric!
    People who start projects and never finish them are cooler
    than people who never start projects at all.

    looks great so far. i'd be tempted to just quilt the sashings/snowball corners, possibly with a dot of something in the center of each flower block.

    I recently did a snowball quilt and stitched in the ditch - I named the quilt the Snowball Fight! It fits a king size bed!
    She looks for wool and flax And works with her hands in delight.

    Beautiful! Great way to use up a very large bold print! Quilt running leaves in the sashing and poppies in the cornerstones.
