Scrumptious Poppy Quilt

Poppy.front.010001The Poppy pattern from the book Simply Fat Quarters (published by the Fat Quarter Shop) inspired me to finally cut into my fat quarter collection of Scrumptious by Bonnie and Camille for Moda.

SimplyFatQuartersWhat I really love about this book is that it allows you to chose a size that works for you. I picked the lap size, but added an additional row, as well as an outside solid border, to make my quilt 76″ X 76″ which is a good size for my double bed.

This quilt uses large blocks so it came together very quickly for me.

 

Poppy.front.closeup0001The scrappy border is one of the things I really love.

Poppy.front.020001The back is pieced with left over scraps, as well as a little bit of light turquoise solid (by Bella) and some large pieces from the Scrumptious collection that I just happened to be hoarding in my stash!

Poppy.backcloseup0001I quilted this using a combination of stippling and some swirls to give it a little “movement.”

The binding is a stripe in turquoise (also from the Scrumptious collection).

Poppy.binding0001I stitched a little label to remind me of when I finished the quilt.

This has to be one of my favorite quilts so far. It is just so happy!

Poppy.draoedonswing.backreveal0001I love how it looks with the pillows I’ve crafted using scraps of many Bonnie and Camille fabrics.

In fact, it sort of makes up a collection of quilts and pillows that I have sewn from fabric created by these talented designers.

I’m looking forward to the colder weather so that I can snuggle under this one!

    I absolutely love this quilt! I am going to see if I can get a copy of the book. I have more fat quarters than anything else in my stash. Time to cut into them and get something done!
