Where Poppies Grow

Quilts and projects rooted in history and honoring heroes.

Denniele Bohannon’s great-grandfather Almo O’Kell served as a medic in World War I and was one of the many soldiers who never came home. Together with Janice Britz, she created the Kansas City Star’s block-of-the-month quilt, Remembering Almo, to honor those who served their country at the centennial of the Great War.

Two color variations and setting options are given for the main quilt. Three more striking quilts, two variations of a table runner and a poppy pin and pincushion round out the projects. Also included is information about Almo’s life, with photos and brief excerpts from his letters.
