The blossom and leaf fabrics came to me as a gift. They said "poppies", very loudly. I had hung them "by chance" on my design wall next to the pieced gradated background I was creating for another quilt, and they looked so great together, that I pulled out all those fabrics again to create the background for my poppies.
