Poppy Pod Lane from Nestlings By Robin

I have a love of poppy flowers and 
have designed some larger quilts 
that the magazines maybe find
overwhelming...?

So I designed a smaller piece and
picked it up:)  YAY!
Their magazine is so full of beauty.

I started previewing my fabrics
to see how they would look
as quarter-square triangles.

Once the top was finished,

Autumn Jubilee Harvest Star Quilt Along – Block B from From My Carolina Home

Autumn Jubilee Quilt Along continues today with the second block.  Block B is simple, we’ll take two pieces of fabric and sew/cut, sew/cut until we have two quarter square triangle units.
