4-Patch Stacked Posies - Poppies

I have been itching to make another quilt from the 4-Patch Stacked Posie pattern. Since I finished my pumpkin 4-patch version, I could start a new quilt with no guilt. This is a photo of the 4-patch blocks I finished last night.

You can see the original fabric down the left hand side of the picture. I have just set the blocks on the green fabric to audition the green color choice. I want to set these blocks differently than the previous two quilts I made from this pattern. I am playing with an on-point setting. I like the green with the blocks, but I have decided that there needs to be something between the block and the green sashing. With my son's assistance last night, we decided that the perfect colour would be a dark brown like the center of the poppy in the original fabric.
I am also undecided whether I will make one larger lap quilt, or if I will make two smaller table toppers.

Since I don't have a fabric in the right shade of dark brown, this project will have to wait until I have a chance to get to the LQS to get more fabric.

This is the link to HD Designs' website--manufacturers of the pattern:


  1. These are wonderful! Does it work with a nine-patch?

  2. Love it! I think a brown border will be perfect to set off the pink blocks.

  3. Isn't it just amazing how the design changes . . . love it *s*

  4. It's looking wonderful...I love your pumpkin one too. :)

  5. I like the blocks without the brown but, you know best! I think one lap quilt would be nice...but then, I am very partial to lap quilts and not table toppers! very well done Norma

  6. Pretty pink and green. I loved your table runners, and have one all cut out...
