I bought the poppy fabric at a quilt store in Georgetown,Texas, in 2018, after the town's annual Poppy Festival. I wanted to make a quilt that showed off the fabric and got suggestions and help designing it at a quilt retreat in Healdsburg in Spring of 2019. I hand quilt on a hoop and so the quilt is on my lap as I quilt. This means I could only do the quilting in cooler months. It took 3 seasons to quilt. I finished quilting January, 2022.
