Poppies Squared

I love this little quilt by my friend Cheryl. Bright batiks and a geometric layout make this a wonderful modern quilt.  I decided to quilt the outside border with beadboard, the orange border has a line of funky flowers as do the inner poppy squares.  The blocks surrounding the poppy squares were quilted randomly with an array of pumpkin seeds, wavy lines, curvy lines, flower strings, watery lines, swirls and circles.  The end result is a pretty, modern look to this bright, graphic quilt.

Batting used was Legacy 80/20 blend.  Threads were turquoise Signature, #469 So Fine (burnt orange) and gray Sulky.

  1. Love what you did with this and the center flower looks great especially with the orange border flower to accent it.
