Tulip Trilogy Wall Quilt

Tulip Trilogy Wall Hanging
Have you been following my BAD (Block-a-Day) project?  If so you will remember blocks 89, 92 and 97 – the three tulip blocks from a free paper-piece design by Regina Grewe.  
Blocks 89, 92 and 97 together at last.
In keeping with my BAD intentions each block is constructed totally from scraps and measures 10” x 4” (slightly bigger than stated on the pattern and I don’t know why!).  I joined the tulips together as suggested in Regina’s pattern before adding a scrappy border cut from some left-over “Bobbins & Bits” jelly roll strips.

It is tradition in our house to have fresh tulips in the house once the daffodils have finished.  With this beautiful little quiltie I shall start a new tradition – to have tulips in the house all year round!

  4. Love your wall hanging. Tulips are my favorite flower but the bunnies always eat mine. And what they don't get, the deer finish off!

    1. The deer prefer roses here in southern England although I am sure they could munch a tulip or two too.

    1. Thank you. I couldn't decide between red or yellow tulips so I made them combined coloured.

  6. Amanda, your tulips look even prettier because of the way you made them scrappy. A bright and happy new tradition!

  7. Tulips are some of my most-loved flowers, too. These are fun, made with paper-piecing. I like them made using the folded corner technique, too. ;)
