TheTulips Finally Bloomed


Some of you may remember that Momcat wanted to finish the Springtime Tulips top during her vacation in Virginia Beach. She did and here's the result. I really like the piano key border!

She also started working on a pieced back, using scraps left over from the top. Then she ran out of the scraps. Since we're keeping this quilt (I know, a quilter who is actually keeping one of her own creations....did the world just stop?) to use as a spring wall hanging, it really doesn't matter what the back looks like.

Today we finished sewing on some plain yellow cotton from the stash. We'll make sure that the blah yellow is the part that gets most of it cut off after the quilting process is finished.


That means we now have two projects ready for quilting: Springtime Tulips and The Poky Little Puppy.

We're behind on our Rotating Snowballs Quilt-Along, so it's back to the sewing room.

Purrs,
Piwacket

What a pretty quilt. The backing will be just fine especially if it's going to hang on the wall. Way to go Linda.

I really love this tulip quilt. It's sooooo pretty. And the back!! I usually do some piecing with the back, but never anything like this. Almost like having 2 quilts. It's kinda fun, I think. Who's the tulip pattern by? Love it.

Susan, the pattern is in a book published by That Patchwork Place called Surprisingly Simple Quilts. It has 13 different quilts that were originally published in Australian Patchwork & Quilting Magazine.
