Poppy - a new work in progress

I became a godmother for the third and forth time a while back. My new gauddaughters are almost approaching their first birthdays so it was high time to make that all important first quilt for them. Goddaughter number 4, Poppy, is the first to receive a quilt. 

I still have a sizable quantity of Annela Hoey's first two collections for Moda and saved these for something really special. 

I love the whimsical, playful, very girly pattern and fussycut some of the designs, such as the trees and the playing children for maximum impact. 

My favourite must be those chasing dogs though closely followed by the cool scootering girls.

The squares are 4 1/2 in which made the whole process quite easy and fast. I am planning to quilt in a nice straightforward 1/2 quilt pattern in a bright red threat. And I also have something really special planned for the quilt back. Watch the space !


  1. I love that fabric! Still keeping scraps for fussy cutting! Perfect fabric for simple blocks!

  2. This is so adorable. I love it.

  3. I love how you have combined the ranges here Judith. I look forward to seeing your backing too!!!!!


Thank you for your comments! I love reading them and will answer every question you have on my projects. But I have a very busy daytime job and am therefore not able to thank each and every comment. Please don't be offended if I won't reply.
