Truly scrumptious poppies .....

This is a gorgeous quilt made from a "Cinderberrys stitches" design called "Truly Scrumptious", beautifully pieced and hand embroidered by Nicola. 
 
"Poppies" design was chosen along with Sand coloured thread which blends just right across the fabric range of colours used in the quilt.
 
This was the first time this "poppies" design has been chosen by one of my customers,  it was one of the new designs which I recently imported from America (You can't buy pantographs in the UK unfortunately and of course they are very popular in the US) and it looks great - even if I do say so myself....
 
 
 
 
Nicola didn't want a custom background quilting fill on the embroidered blocks but rather an allover look to the quilt which she prefers the density of.  The background fabric chosen was a beautiful cream on cream Moda paisley and the backing looks just as great.  I love the way that an allover design could be used in reverse too.  (If you ever wanted to of course...)  In fact I hope to quilt myself a gorgeous cream or white (top and bottom) quilt for our bed in the summer....  I think this design in particular would look great on white fabric.  Oh and while I am at it, maybe matching pillow shams too.....

Great panto with tricky little centres to the flowers but you nailed it, the quilt looks great!

It was a fabulous quilt to begin with, the hours it must take to hand embroider those panels so neatly.
