The 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.
What 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.
The 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!
The binding is a stripe in turquoise (also from the Scrumptious collection).
This has to be one of my favorite quilts so far. It is just so happy!
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!
