From the pattern cover:
When Sonja Taylor was asked to paint a watercolor to promote the Hill City Quilt Show in South Dakota...she knew it had to be special...
In 2011, the Hill City Quilt Show falls on September 10th & 11th. For several years Sonja and I have talked of creating a "Tribute Quilt" - once that recognizes the incredible gift of freedom we Americans enjoy. With this in mind, we wanted to design a quilt that is a tribute to the sacrifices made by our soldiers past and present. A quilt that uplifts families, remembers loved ones and is truly beautiful. for all these reasons, it seemed right to create our quilt with poppies of every color floating free on the breeze in a lush green meadow. The beautiful poppy used every Memorial Day to honor, remember and pay respect.
After completing her watercolor, Sonja asked me to turn "Poppy Meadows" into a quilt. How lucky could I get! With the help of my 95 year young father, Herbert Herman, a WWII Veteran, we worked side by side to create these quilts from beautiful Hoffman Batiks sewn in a Monet-like background and scattered with stunning fusible applique poppies. When we finished, Dad's comment was..."to think I had a hand in that...it's beautiful."
All fabrics are Hoffman batik. Kit includes fabric for the top, borders, and binding.
Recommended: Consider Steam a Seam Light II for the fusible applique.
