In our neck of the woods… wait, let me rephrase that…. here in our corner of the prairie, we had a snow storm earlier this week and are now enjoying sunshine and warming temperatures. Shoveling the snow revealed a few green leaves of tulip bulbs that had just broken the surface of the soil. We should be enjoying colorful displays not too long from now. In the meantime we settle for tulip displays on quilts.
Beautiful Coventry Garden Tulips in your favorite colors combines easy piecing and applique. Your garden will bloom soon!
Just one Tantalizing Tulip, but that’s all it takes to brighten our day, just one. Pull out your bright scraps and applique this art deco type flower.
Another lone bloom, Tender Tulip looks romantic and graceful. Thoughtful selection of your background fabric makes this a dynamic little quilt. Finishing at 9″ x 12″, it’s just right for a hostess gift, Easter gift, or “just because” gift.
Tulip Festival is shown with a light background, but it would also look great with vibrant colored flowers on a dark background. This wallhanging finishes at 36″ square.
Here’s a quick project that you’ll be able to finish before the real tulips show up. A pre-printed, pre-colored design Heirloom Tulips just needs embroidery to be finished. The size is 4″ x 5″.
Enjoy stitching your spring garden.
