Poppy Quilt Almost Done

I set aside the orange and blue tulip quilt because I ran out of bobbin thread and need to go pick some up. In the meantime, I've returned to quilting on the red poppy quilt that has been up on my design wall for a few weeks. I shared a full view of this quilt here.

I had all of the background quilted but was having trouble deciding on what quilting design I wanted to do on the red flowers. I finally decided and got going. The design you see on the flowers is my variation of one I found on an excellent free-motion quilting blog found here. I also incorporated this design into the border. As I write this post, I have one side border finished and have one left and then it's completely quilted.

You can sort of see the leaf and stem design I quilted into the background here.

I hope you can see the quilting lines. I was having trouble taking photos that would show them.
