I recently took a 2 day workshop from Vikki Pignatelli on Improvisation using her Crazy About Curves technique. This Field Poppy quilt was inspired by her class. The background for the poppy (fabric tile) was a technique from a Gloria Loughman book that I got from my nephew for Christmas. The book is titled Radiant Landscapes.
I also added some stuffing in the Poppy to give it a 3-D effect. You can see it here in the side view of the poppy.
I plan to enter this wall hanging in our local quilt show.
