Oriental poppy design for quilting a wallhanging or pillow.

This pattern is the perfect size for machine quilting on a regular home machine. I love every variety of poppy. The ones that grow here are the California Poppies, the Icelandic Poppies, and the Oriental Poppies. There are so many different shapes of leaves and flowers that I never seem to tire of them. And then there are the glorious colors that entice me even further to use them as the subject matter for so many of my creations.

I love creating these designs with their repetitive yet varied shapes and textures. They are incredibly addictive to create as well as to stitch, and I am always looking for new ideas and inspiration to add to this little collection of patterns.

Note: if you choose the downloadable pattern, it will include the full-sized  20" square traceable pattern for the design. You can either print it from your own printer on multiple sheets of paper or save the file and have it printed by a copy shop or someone that does large-scale printing.

Below is the finished pillow that I made from this patten. My favorite fabric to use is the Ultra Sateen in white. Doing the quilting in cream and taupe colored threads gives this piece a beautiful ivory glow and really makes the design pop.
