Poinsettia is my newest pattern, and first pattern I designed in ~2 years!
In 2020 I took a bit of a break from quilting and designing, and I wasn’t sure if I’d be back… I didn’t know what the future would be. But a turn of events, and lots of time to heal and get other parts of my life in order, led me to coming back to this space and I couldn’t be happier!!
It’s been so much fun coming back into this part of my life, despite it being slowly… and not as consistent as I want to be, it’s been a great reminder of how much I love creating and quilting and what a big part of my life quilting has become.
I will admit that I was really afraid that I forgot how to quilt, or that I would have lost my ability to design a good pattern, but Poinsettia did not disappoint.
And I think that’s a good message for all of us.
This was the first tester charity block I made. I thought I was doomed to not be a good quilter anymore, because some of the center seams didn’t match up. Then I realized that it was the wrong size! lol. I had printed the pattern templates out wrong, and I didn’t know.
My blocks sense have lined up better and I’m relieved to know I still got it. haha!
I guess quilting is like riding a bike. 🙂
Here are a few mockups I made to show some of the different ways you can use this block.
Of course there are WAY MORE possibilities than this! You can use the coloring pages to help you come up with something that is all yours!
Your Poinsettia projects
Since it’s a new pattern, I have mostly only seen tester blocks for the charity quilt. I’ll share those and some of the other projects I’ve found.
I can’t wait to add your projects to the collection. Let me know if you make something with this! I’d love to see!
I’m ready to start sewing all the charity blocks together, so stay tuned for more photos! It’s going to be awesome!!
