Welcome Reeze Hanson to the QuiltWoman.com Blog.
I have been designing patterns for Northcott Fabrics for the past 2 years and love getting to see the new fabric lines as they come out. This month I have completed three new patterns for their beautiful new line of Poppy themed fabric called In Full Bloom by Deborah Edwards.
Poppy Picture Window
The first pattern uses running yardage of poppy flower blocks surrounded by a funky border. I call it Poppy Picture Window.
This is a smaller throw or lap size quilt, 38″ x 44″. It is an easy pattern for a confident beginner since the only pieced part is the border. You could put any panel or large scale print inside the border.
Starlight Poppies is a larger lap quilt, 52″ x 52″ which is appropriate for an intermediate quilter, although I think a confident beginner could do it if they can do set-in seams.
Yup, there a few set-in seams in this pattern, so you may want to brush up on that technique before you tackle this one. But the vivid colors and poppy prints make it worth the effort.
The last one is called Amazing Poppies and is an intermediate level pattern, although it is all just squares and rectangles with quick corners. The challenge is making sure you have the fabric oriented with the stripe in the correct direction. The pattern provides complete instructions and illustrations for assembling the quilt.
This pattern uses just two fabrics in the quilt center. A poppy flower strip and solid white. It was fun to design and make. At 48″ x 56″ it is a bit too big for a wall quilt but great for a throw or sofa.
The In Full Bloom fabric will be shipping to your local quilt shop this fall. Ask for the fabric at your LQS. All three patterns are available for purchase in either a paper pattern or downloadable on the QuiltWoman.com website.
Thanks for taking a look!
