This workshop was inspired by the original one I made in response to my inability to keep them in the garden! I just love this flower but the fact they are so short blooming made me ‘grow’ them on my wall. The class will include machine applique, free form machine piecing for the background, free motion machine quilting and hand beading. You choose the colors, red, orange, yellow, purple etc. and make them POP!

I just LOVE poppies but have no talent for keeping them alive in the garden…sadly….but I’m excellent at growing them in fabric!!!
