Poppies and Rick Rack Quilt

I pieced this quilt last fall for a local quilt shop, it was appliqued and machine quilted then displayed in the store with kits for the quilt. The kits have sold out and so I brought the quilt home.

Large scale floral stands out on both sides, the piece was about 1 2/3 yard

10 strips of fabric I think they were 2.5 inch by width of fabric, or about 42 inches

It used a large scale focal print from Michael Miller Fabrics by artist Laura Gunn. It is a length of the large print, cut down one side, the poppy print was then placed on the outside and accented by 10 strips of fabric, and a few large rectangles. Then a focal circle with a few layers and some jumbo rick rack, machine quilted to highlight the flowers.

Lovely at home!

This quilt has joined a few link parties on some fun crafty blogs, be sure to look left to see it in action. A new one I joined this week which is mostly quilt-y types of things is "Quilt Story" be sure to check them out here!

I have always admired anyone who has the patience to piece together a quilt, especially a complicated one! That quilt is beautiful!

That is beautiful. I love poppies and all the bright colors. I have to keep this design in mind for when I make my new home next year. How did you do the circle? I still have not learned to do circular shapes in quilts, but I suspect that will come some day. Thank you for sharing.
