My Creative Space

I have gone from last week having a barren creative space, to getting it all happening again. Thank Goodness. Life gets pretty dull for me when there is no crafting going on.

Anyway, this design has been floating around in my head for a couple of years. I mean that.....a couple of years.

I call it 'red poppies on white'. (I am not creative with my names!)

Here is the design a drew up before I started.

This design is very simple, just focusing on my cotton solids and the quilting.

This is it underway.

This quilt will not be perfect. I have not used templates and have just cut freehand. 

I am still trying to decide whether to cut out little black circles to put in the center so my poppies resemble 'real' poppies, or just leave it like this (my own artistic interpretation ha ha ha). I don't think I will do the leaves. I am really liking the simplicity of this quilt. And of course, just loving my Kona Cotton Solids! 
I love love love them!!!!

Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

For more creative spaces just pop over here to the home of creativness, Kootoyoo.

Happy crafting and creating to you!

I would love to see it with the black centers in the flowers... a good name for the quilt would be "Flanders fields", like the fields of poppies that grow around the ANZAC fields.... But love the idea of the quilt... and it is Gorgeous... brings out the colours of the solids...
