  • Poppie Mae quilt

    I made this quilt top using some fabric that I won. It’s called Poppie Mae by Robin Pickens. The pattern is so easy and quick and I love how the big blocks showcase those beautiful poppies. I usually go for earthy tones like Civil War fabrics, but this bright cheerful collection has given me a new look at fabric colors.

    The pattern is called Diamond Cakes. There are two versions because the creator updated the pattern. I liked the older version better so that’s the one I did.

    That's really pretty. How big are your poppy squares? When I lived in Calif my mom took me up to the poppy reserve and you just can't believe how gorgeous one color can be.

      Sew pretty. I love Robin Pickens fabrics. This is a great pattern for showing off those fabrics you don't want to cut up in small pieces.

          This is beautiful, Bec! Inspiring me with ideas for a panel I cut up several years ago, but never assembled.

            I don’t have it in front of me, but I think the finished block was around 8”.

                  That is beautiful. I just searched Robin Pickens and Diamond Cakes and cannot find the pattern anywhere. Can you please tell me where you found it? I checked Robins Pickens website and didn't find it there. Thank you so much.

                    Here is the pattern. However...the picture looks like my quilt but her instructions are for a revised version which has double cornerstones at each corner. I had to email her because I was confused about it and she sent me the older version instructions. Even with that I didn’t like how the quilt was put together. Her corner stones had diagonal seams through them an I didn’t like that. So I put it together my way. https://www.jemimascreativequilting....-quilt-pattern.
