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!!!
