Looking for fun ways to use every last inch of your colorful fabric scraps? Be sure to join The Sewing Loft for the Creative Chops series.

As mentioned in the Creative Chops article, the series will run in rainbow order and orange is next on the list. That means, grab your amber, peach, pumpkin, tangerine, salmon, and rust-colored prints because we are about to slice and dice them to create something fun!

Here is a sneak peek at my fabric pull. I just love seeing the wide range of shades come together.

The Poppy Seed quilt is easy to make and has been designed in such a way that no special templates, rulers, or tools are required.

Poppy Seed Quilt Details

  • Made with 12″ finished blocks
  • 30 blocks
  • Finishes 60″ x 72″

Material & Supply List:

*Assorted prints of tonal yardage varies by color but I used all scraps. See pattern for details. 

The Poppy Seed quilt pattern features a patchwork construction in tonal shades of orange with pops of contrast. The block is designed to create the illusion of sashing when grouped together. Learned techniques include chain stitching, matching your seams, and remembering to keep pressing seam allowance as indicated.

The Pattern

At a quick glance, you may be wondering how to calculate for half blocks and sashing but, I’ve taken all the guesswork out by incorporating this detail into my block.

Since I have already made this scrappy quilt top, I am going to be stitching together another version with fabrics in my stash. Don’t worry, they are still in the orange family and since they have been in my stash forever, I’m excited to finally turn them into a finished project.

My goal is to create a new quilt from the same pattern that has a completely different feel. Then, I can put them together to show you just how much of a difference small changes in your fabric selections can make.
