Work in progress

My sewing machine is sitting pretty under its new quilt, It was supposed to be a proper boxed cover but I got the size wrong!

My new poppy quilt has the sashing sewn on, but then I went into a panic because I thought the brown overpowered it ,even thou I want it to look like fencing.
I have made up one poppy to see how its looks and they are so big and there are eleven of them it should work out as they cover a lot of the quilt anyway, so I am carrying on with it.

The poppy needs its black and yellow centre added
This should be a quick quilt to make as you do the applique the same time as you quilt it.
