One of the first classes I taught on my first trip to America was "Poppy Fields" which is a pattern Jan Blanchet designed. That was way back in 2002 and it is still a popular pattern today.

The Poppy Fields class I taught was in Arizona and I have a photo of some of my students working on their pieces. Perhaps you recognize them!

One lady made hers with yellow poppies which looks rather nice. Unfortunately I never got to see this one finished.

Today we extended this pattern into a download for purchase, just so you could get it sooner because I know you'd love to make it. The quilt is 21" x 17", the perfect size for a wall hanging where you are limited with space. The project isn't hard to make and lots of fun. 

You can purchase the download here: Download Poppy Fields

  • Thank you Connie and Edna, I do have wonderful memories too. Ten years ago this year! I will never forget asking Mike for lemonade in my vodka, and then you Connie saying you had some powered stuff... I wondered what on earth lol. It took us a whole 24 hours to realize I was meaning Sprite.

  • I recognize my back side and all the other ladies that are pictured in the class. I still have my Poppy Quilt and several others made in workshops with Ruth and have fond memories of the classes.

  • What fun we had in your classes on that trip!! It was such an honor to host you and introduce you to American quilters--and American freeways and our "crazy" American accent! Many happy memories!
    No one is prouder of your success in America than we are!
