The first set in the collection contains 20 designs for your 4" by 4" hoop. When you stitch out these beautiful poppies you use 3 shades of red, (I used Sulky Rayon 1037, 1039 and 1263) starting with the palest for the outer petals. Then use a slightly darker shade for the middle section of the petals and the darkest for the inner section. This will give your poppies depth and make them more natural. I also experimented with a peachy pinks to capture a lovely poppy that grows in my garden. I used Sulky Rayon 1017, 619 and 1054 for that.
