Vanessa's Poppy's

Patchwork and Quilting have kept me very busy over the last month - I just don't have any photo's to show for my efforts. The club have been busy working on quilts for charity and I've been quilting a top - which is still under the machine. It is similar in colour to Vanessa's poppy's. Last week I helped a friend organise her fabric and her thank you was these beautiful poppy's.

Poppy's always seem 'fairy' like to me. As the petals fall they remind me of the dresses I imagine that fairies might wear, similar to the ball gowns of the 40's and 50's with the soft folds of delicate fabrics like chiffon. I almost can't bear to let go of the petals.
