This is the quilt I made for my oldest daughter, Jennifer. I named it Poppy Patch, and I have the label for it here and she has the quilt in Iowa. Nice , huh. I'm not real good at making sure the labels are on before I give them away. She quilts too, but she is real busy being a homeschool mom to three and pastors wife so she doesn't have enough time right now to do it as much as she would like to.
I had this one on the drawing board for quite a while.
I saw the poppy flower pattern in a book about 30 years ago and made a sketch of it, so I didn't really have a pattern, but I made one up from the sketch. It wasn't terribly hard.
Quilting is something she and I enjoy doing together.
Once she and I made two quilts just alike together at her house for her boy's beds. (I don't have a picture of those though.) I took my Janome, which I love, and she worked on her machine. We just cut and pieced them though, she did the quilting later. I think it took us a couple of days, maybe three because we were doing other things as well. Fun, fun, fun.
