I worked hard on the tulip quilt top this past week. Sunday I cut out the colours to go around the tulips and finished a few purple tulips. Monday I was starting to lay it out. Then a few evenings of sewing the top together. This is finish number 8 for me this year. Yes I call finishing a top a finish, I will have to get some quilting done soon. I need lots quilted and bound king of finished soon.
I had been making tulips with the different colours as part of the Rainbow Scrap Challenge over at So Scrappy.
I will also add this post to Confessions of a Fabric Addict, Crazy Mom Quilts,
Some of the rows coming together. This pattern is from the book Quilty Fun.
Some of the Red tulips I got done last week as part of the colour Red for March. Love how this photo looks. I think it is like when you see planted tulips in a row but you are not lined up with the rows.
I have many more tulips left to play with. I think they may show up in a coupe more quilts with other blocks.
Beautiful finish--very Spring-like. Hugs, JulieroseReplyDelete
I love your tulip quilt top! It's gorgeous!ReplyDelete
That is one great quilt. What a good idea to make tulips for your monthly color for Rainbow Scrap Challenge. Great job getting 8 tops finished this year. (I wish I counted tops as finishes! I tend to wait to count it done until it is quilted and bound. I used to wait until quilts were labeled but I've been neglecting that too much recently!)ReplyDelete
Your tulips are so cheery and Springy... gives me hope for our weather. Thanks for sharing them.ReplyDelete
That is a fun quilt. It's calling Spring I think. :^D Congrats on this beautiful top. Enjoy the rest of the tulips. ;^)ReplyDelete
Love your tulips and the setting in the quilt. So colorful. I've never seen the pattern. How big are the blocks? Where could I find the pattern? I used to live in tulip country in Washington state. What a sight every April. Yours is a delight.ReplyDelete
