Completion #3 - Poppywood

This one tried to break me. After wrestling with it I felt it had become my nemesis.

Oh, sure, the FMQing in sections went well.

Sections 1 and 2 went together nicely.

But section 3 did not play nicely! And being a king-sized quilt, this one was heavy and left me feeling beat-up.
I actually sewed it 4 times, and unsewed 3 of those! The 4th was the charm. Washed, dried and on the bed.

Whew, I won!

Poppywood - 95" x 95"

Fabrics from the Laura Gunn Poppies collection. I made disappearing 9 patch blocks, set them on point and made a scrappy border.

I like your quilt. I had a bear of my own to quilt. Stitches still to pick out. Hated the thread color I had on hand because my regular quilt shop was out of the colors I wanted. It's quilted now. I'll trim and bind then pick in the comfort of my bedroom with a nice new quilt.
