Mark created this quilt in memory of his Dad (who his kids called Poppy). His two kids are in the quilt as butterflies and Mark is in the quilt as a frog. He told his kids as a joke, "if you don't behave, I'm going to eat you..."

Here's a blog post from the past regarding the quilt.

Fresh from the 2013 AQS QuiltWeek - Paducah is Poppy's Rainbow by Mark L. Sherman winner of 1st Place, Large Wall Quilts: Longarm/Midarm Machine Quilted. Mark spent many months working on the turned edge appliques, quilting and fills. He even added a few Swarovski crystals for highlights. Poppy's Rainbow also took Best of Show at the World Quilt Show - Florida IV last November.
