12″ Poppy quilt block video tutorial

This week we’ll be making a 12″ poppy block.

The block will work in different colours too and in coordinated fabrics.

It’s also a quick and easy fun block to make.

You can use the left over half square triangles on the back of the quilt.  You can sew them into 9 patch or 16 patch quilt blocks. Plenty of layouts to choose from.

Cutting instructions

  • 4 squares, 6 1/2″ x 6 1/2″ in different red prints
  • 8 squares, 3 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ in white for the background
  • 4 squares, 2″ x 2″ in black print for the centre

Finished size

12″ x 12″.

Are you going to give it a go?

My book Turnabout Patchwork

“Turnabout Patchwork. Simple quilts with a twist” is all about playing with blocks – making a block, slicing it up, and turning or repositioning the pieces to make a completely different block (sometimes two smaller blocks) to yield endless quilt tops.
