Thanks to the holiday I made some progress on the poppy quilt.
First I had to get out of my own way. I stared looking at the quilt as a learning exercise, a place to try out new things. Then I took paint to it.
I planned to add paint to the flowers, then changed my mind, and then changed it back. I’m sorry I didn’t do it from the start, but not sorry enough to rip out the stitching.
Here’s a painted flower.
And here’s one that wasn’t.
I think the paint helps the fabrics blend together.
I’m over half way through the applique now and feeling better about finishing this quilt.
