Popping Poppies

"Poppies 2"  (detail)

I'm pleased with how the poppies "pop" even the uncoloured ghost seed heads. Not sure whether to frame these all separately or join as quilt as you go....

Aren't these rovings just yummy?:


  1. Another super panel Clare, and the rovings looks like candy floss, and probably just as difficult to eat!!!!

  2. The poppies are gorgeous--that splash of red on the grey and white! They pop in texture and color!

  3. Absolutely loving your poppies - beautiful!

  4. The red against the black, grey and white is stunning.

  5. Great poppies, great work, dear Clare! Like those 'ghosts' too ;-)!
