    This ebook is great for learning skills of dimensional work along with the basics of machine embroidery. The petals of the poppies and leaves are hanging free to give a 3-D effect of a real plant and the embroidery gives them character and shape. Also available as a pattern.

    • 4" flower color (poppy)
    • 4" light green (leaves)
    • 12" dark green (leaves, border, binding)
    • Scrap of black (flower center)
    • 12" background fabric A (diamond and outer border)
    • 6" background fabric B (background triangles)
    • FOUR 2" squares in scrap fabric
    • 16" backing
    • 16" compressed batting or similar fine batting
    • 8" fusible web
    • Small piece of interfacing, approx. 2" x 4"
    • Matching and contrasting machine embroidery threads for flowers and leaves. I have chosen four, one the color of the poppy petals, one the color of the poppy centers, and two for each green.
    • Small seed beads
    • Neutral colored thread for piecing the background
    • Suitable thread for quilting (I prefer to use invisible nylon thread on the top with Metrolene overlocking thread for the bobbin) Other threads are acceptable.
    • Sewing Machine and accessories
    • 1/4" machine foot or another method of measuring 1/4" seams (these are mentioned in lesson two)
    • Walking foot and darning foot (optional, but helpful)
    • Machine and hand stitching needles
    • 10" tear-away or similar removable stabilizer, preferably dark in color
    • Pencil or fabric marker
    • Cutting mat, rotary cutter, and rulers
    • Small very sharp scissors, pins, and safety pins
    • Baking paper
    • Iron
    • Template Plastic (optional)
    • Quilt sandwich (a layer of two pieces of muslin with batting in between, safety-pinned together)
