Tutorial Throwback Thursday - Poppies

I can't believe it is Thursday already.  Is anyone else having a hard time keeping track of the days.  Things just sort of blend all together ;)  Just keep rolling with it I suppose.  And what better way to roll, than with something super simple and super easy that it takes next to no thought to put it together.   But of course, it still looks super cute!!!   And so for today's Thursday , I thought it would be perfect to go back 3 years to the Poppies  quilt!!!    Isn't it just so happy with those pops of color!!!

Poppies  really is a fun quilt to make and is fantastic for beginners and experts alike.  It is a wonderful project for right now as everything seems just a little crazy, this is perfect for just some relaxing stitching!!!   And with lots of Stitch and Flip corners, you can make a bonus pillow with all of the scraps ;)  So fun!!!   But I just love how the layout of this quilt gives it such movement.  Almost like follow the bouncing ball ;)    It finishes at 66" x 81" so it makes a great size for snuggling up in or lying out in the sun!!    

Poppies  is a Fat Quarter Friendly quilt and uses 20 Fat Quarters.  So you can easily grab a bundle and get stitching.   And with the larger piecing, it can really show off some of your larger scale prints.  I used Ava Rose by Deena Rutter for Riley Blake Designs and I love the colors and how they pop!! (Especially that deep coral color!!!)   So just grab a fun colorful bundle that speaks to you and is just waiting to pop!!!   

Poppies  also is perfect if you need to whip up a quilt for a Grad or a new Bride ;)  This original went to a special grad two years ago.  I love giving quilts as high school graduation gifts, it is just nice to think that they can go off to college with something to cuddle up in when they get a little homesick :)   And this design is perfect for lots of fun while still beings sweet and simple!!!

And that is my Poppies  Quilt!!!     I hope you have enjoyed today's Tutorial Throwback Thursday as much as I have!!!      To make your own Poppies  quilt  just click on any of the project name links for the free step by step tutorial.    And when you are done,  I would love to see your Quilts!!  You can email me a picture at, post it to social media with #happyquiltingwithmc  :)   I can't wait to see your Poppies Quilts!!

    I have your Charming Baby book and am looking forward to making many quilts from it.

  2. I ordered your Charming Baby Book, because my daughter was going to have a baby and I wanted to make many quilts for him. Well, he is home (so tiny!) I have been following the Charming Baby Sew Along. (I'm so far behind, for a perfectly good reason.)
    Your book is great, the cutting directions and sewing directions are so easy to follow, that even I can make blocks turn out perfect!!! Thank you so much for such cute quilts and a fantastic book!


Thank you so much for your sweet comments. I just love hearing from you!!
Have a Happy Quilting Day :)
