Field of Poppies

 Today I am at the Quilt Expo but I scheduled this to show you my newest quilt.
I began this on Monday and work on it thru Wed.  I am this far.  More is still to be added.

Detail shot of one poppy.
I am pretty happy with it so far.  It is fun and makes me feel happy when looking at it.  You can see I couched some yarn for the stems of the buds.  I also pieced the background and quilted it first.  

I will let you know how the Expo turns out.  I am sure I will have fun and find lots of fabulous fabrics.
