I made this as my assessment piece for my first C&G course in 2005. The background is made from black/white hexagons - all hand stitched - and my favourite flowers the poppies are in 3d on top of it. Size is approximately 45"x30". I really should measure it again. Since I made this quilt it has been hanging in my bedroom so the first thing I see every morning is this beauty.

The same idea but using 2 fq's in a related - other - color scheme:
One of the fq's had more orange in it while the other one was mainly red. As you can see the fabric was wet before I dyed it. I like this color combination more than the one I showed you above.

Applied resist on it and pressed it down on the fabric. After it had dried I applied dye using a foam brush to one piece of fabric and I used Setacolor paints on the other piece.
This is the dyed fabric. You can see the pattern of the stamp a bit, but not as much as I had hoped. However this is how the painted fabric looks like:
Much better, don't you think?

And this is how it looks when it is finished:
I used the compulsary fabric for the flowers. They are 3d as you can see on the detail picture:
Now to finish the paperwork and get it into the mail as soon as possible.
