Wanderings Fabric Tour

Thursday, August 8, 2019

Hello! Hello!
Today I get to share a recent finish I made out of a new fabric line called 
Wanderings by Poppie Cotton.

This is my second project with the new company Poppie Cotton and I am such a fan!  The sweet, beautiful, traditional fabrics in soft colors really speak to me.  And just a hint for what's to come...I said yes to a third project with their third line!  I only say yes to lines I really love and I think their lines keep getting better and better!

Wanderings is a sweet, feminine line of fabrics that includes flowers, butterflies and a few basics.  
It incorporates darks and lights in a really beautiful color scheme of pinks, blues, greys, and whites.

I wanted to pick a pattern that really showcased the fabrics so I chose my Lulu pattern.  
It's normally a Jelly Roll pattern but I was able to easily adjust it for fat quarters.  

I loved the way it turned out.  Many of my patterns have a lot of background fabric 
showing but I think it's a testament to the beauty of this line that it's not too busy 
even though I didn't use any other fabric lines or solids to break things up.

I used a coordinating gingham fabric from my stash for the back 
(sorry, I've had it for a few years and can't remember what company made it).

I used the remainder of the blue fat quarters to make a scrappy binding.  
I love a good scrappy binding, don't you?!?

Denae Hansen in American Fork, Utah quilted this for me using a classic orange peel design.  
She did a great job as always!  The orange peel is one of my all-time favorite go-to designs!

Wanderings is available in stores now.  
Click HERE for a list of shops carrying Poppie Cotton.

Lulu is based on a vintage quilt I once saw.  
It's a very simple pattern; one you can whip up in a day or two.  
Like I said, it's Jelly Roll friendly and comes with instructions 
for two different sizes - a lap and a twin.

Well, that's it for my stop on the Wanderings Fabric Tour.
I feel so honored I got to work with this beautiful fabric line alongside
the other designers on this tour.

  1. That is a pretty quilt pattern and it looks great in those fabrics. I like the soft muted palette.

    1. Thank you so much! I love a simple pattern + beautiful fabrics!

      Have a great day!

  2. This quilt speaks to my heart. It just looks like you would want to cuddle up and read a book!

    1. Aw thank you! I think that's a great idea!

      Thanks for stopping by!

  5. I love those colors and the pattern you chose. And scrappy bindings are my friend. LOL
    Great backing too.

    1. Thank you so much! It was a miracle that I had something in my stash that I could use for the back! Best feeling ever!

      Scrappy bindings forever and always!


  6. Could you tell me how many fat quarters you needed to make this quilt using your Lulu pattern? I'd love to make it too.

    1. I believe I used all 21 of the fat quarters shown in the second image above. I only cut about 4 rectangles and 4 squares (if I remember correctly) from each fat quarter so I had a good chunk of each fat quarter leftover to use for the scrappy binding + some scraps. You could probably make it with fewer fat quarters but I wanted to use all of them so there was lots of variety.

      Thank you and happy quilting!

  8. The gingham fabric is so adorable and I love the pillow tutorial. Thank you so much for sharing, it will look great in my home.

  9. How many jelly rolls does it use? Would one be enough? Thanks :)

    1. The throw quilt calls for 1 JR + 1 coordinating fat quarter. The twin size quilt calls for 2 JR's + 2 fat quarters. :)

      Thanks for stopping by!
