Free Quilt Block Pattern
The Poppy quilt block is a simple five patch block (so named as it is constructed on a 5 x 5 grid) and an easy one to construct. It contains only simple shapes, the square and rectangle, and another of the very common patches in quilt making -- flying geese. The simple circle shape that is the centre of the poppy is appliqued on top of the block as a last step.
As you will note, by rotating or flipping the block in a variety of ways you can achieve different arrangements that appear as "borders" for the blocks in the resultant quilts. You could also choose not to include the outer pieces (shown here in green fabric) for a simple poppy all on its own.
