Poppy Quilt

I popped the borders on today

You need to imagine this quilt horizontally

They went on with only minimal unpicking, its always nice when that happens!

The technique of sewing the blocks was a new one for me and really easy

Place fabrics right sides together and mark down the centre

Sew a 1/4 of an inch either side of the line and cut apart along the marked line

Iron open

Place two blocks together with opposite colours facing and again draw a line down the centre

Sew 1/4 inch either side of the line, cut apart and voila!

When I started sewing I would have made that block up with the four triangles and it would not have been half as accurate, so thank you to the bright spark that came up with it this easier method.

Happy sewing!

Your quilt is really looking neat! I've done the triangles that way and it sure makes it easy. Your piecing looks perfect!

I remember well the gratitude I felt when I learned this method! I use it all the time now. Love the border on your quilt - it really pulls the brown into line.

Your work is really neat and clean. I have done the triangles and circles also other shapes that way and it sure makes it easy. For me it is best for inspiration.

Different lines, circles and diamond shapes I used in my quilt work. After learning your blog details with awesome images, it is very easy to complete my work of quilt.
