Poppy quilt


I have nearly finished making up my fused poppies, they are quite big 6 1/2 inches in diameter, they have used loads of fusible paper, I ran out of it on Sunday so my poppy wall hanging is on stand by at the moment.


I did have a play with possible layouts thou, the first one is the same as in the book.


Both layouts are minus the stems and some large leaves due to running out of the fusible web.


This second layout has the poppies more at the top half of the quilt.

I have made a whoops as well, I should have fused the poppies before adding the borders, Note to self read the instructions properly!

I keep changing my mind about which layout I prefer, what to you think?

Happy sewing!

Love your WIP! I'm here from Freshly Pieced. I like the top variation. I like the placement of the flowers better. The bottom on seem more "lined up" if you know what I mean. Keep up the good work!

I really love these poppies! They're so beautiful. As for the two layouts... I like the bottom one - especially if the poppies will be connected {somewhat} to the leaves at the bottom. It really feels sweet and simple.

Love, love, love your poppies! I like the second one, as it makes me think of a gorgeous window-box. And the borders? Don't worry about that at all!

This is going to be beautiful. Never mind, that the grid should be on top, I think it looks perfect like this.

I really like this! I will say that the top one looks like wild growing poppies that you just found and took a picture of; a little more random. The other looks more uniform, like you planted them in the garden. So, it's how you want them to look from there!
