    Lost Poppy pattern

    I need help from you wonderful internet searchers. The pattern I've misplaced was free on Hancock Fabrics site. It was made with poppy fabric and has "Poppy" in the name. It's made with a 9 or 10 degree ruler and is a large fan of color on a black background. I have a picture, the fabrics I want, but not the pattern or measurements of the strips that make the blades. If I can't find it, I'll have to try to do my own measurements so they add up to about 39" as my notes say the center is 42x42 and the fan nearly fills it. Any ideas? Thank you.

    If the pattern was free and you know the fabric manufacturer, you may be able to go to the manufacturer's website and find the pattern you're looking for.

    I tried - looked through 678 pictures. The good news I found it. I dug deeper in the bag of fabrics and I have a printout of the pattern, including a paper template for the blades, but I hope to use my ruler. It's odd that the picture and the pattern were separated, but probably because I had to take the front page to the fabric store. Thank you for reading.

    I love poppies! Do post when you have your top done - it sounds interesting.
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    Mine won't have poppies. I originally purchased the fabrics for my grandson's Asian restaurant, so the feature fabric has a more Asian feel. Though I'm tempted to go look for something more red as it's for a friend who loves red, so it may end up with poppies. I want to make a change in the pattern. The large quarter circle is appliqued on the black background and I'd rather stitch it together like a drunkard's path block. http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-gF_RO2jNoV...ottons.com.jpg

    What an attractive wall hanging! Waiting to see it done no matter what prints you use.

    I hope it's not a wall hanging. My intent is just to make a throw - beach, picnic, sofa, I don't care, just use it. Just a pretty throw. I'm going with the fabric I have. I have too much in my house to buy more. It's going to generate a huge amount of scraps the way it is cut, but I don't know if I want to spend the time getting around that.

    Phillips Fiber Art has a lot of patterns & books that use the 10 degree ruler. Cheryl, also, has some free patterns available. https://www.phillipsfiberart.com/

    If you wanted to enlarge the poppies pattern, you could come in from the other opposite corner with a backwards cut from the strata that you sew to make the first corner arch. Look at the Spiral Table Runner to see what I mean. https://www.bing.com/images/search?q...tern&FORM=IGRE

    I'd love to get that pattern. Would you please share the complete name of it?

    I have Cheryl Phillips, 'Quilts Without Corners', but I've never figured out how to use a round quilt. I've made many Spicy Spiral table runners, though one is being used as a wall hanging.
    I've searched for the pattern, but it seems to no longer be available. I printed mine from the Hancock of Padukah site several years ago. It is Poppies by Deb Mosa. I can find the picture, but no link to a pattern.

    How did you find that? Thank you. I printed another copy of the templates in case I miscut mine. I started last night, but I don't like one of the fabrics, so it's shopping time. Hobby Lobby or LQS?

    How did you print it? I couldn't figure out how to print at all.

    Pull the pattern up. Right click anywhere and choose 'Print'. All 5 pages came up, so I then chose 3-5 to get just the pattern pieces. I'm on a elderly desktop running Windows 10, but EP, 7 and 8 were the same.

    I'm so glad that I was able to help find the pattern. It took a bit of detective work to track it down.
