Celebrate Poinsettia Day With Five Poinsettia Quilt Patterns

Happy Poinsettia Day!

This day marks the anniversary of the death of Joel Roberts Poinsett, an American botanist, physician and Minister to Mexico. In the 1820s, he sent cuttings back home to Charleston of a poinsettia plant he’d found in Southern Mexico, where it had long been associated with Christmas. Something that continues today.

Nothing says Christmastime like beautiful, red poinsettias blooming! Well, maybe add in some sparkly lights, too.

These five poinsettia quilting patterns will get you in the mood for Poinsettia Day!
