When these tulips bloom, I always think about tulip quilts. There are so many good patterns, some for pieced quilts but most for applique.
I dug out my tulip projects the other day. I have one spot left on my Pick Six list. Which one of these should I decide to finish?
Candidate #2: Eleanor Burns' Tulip Quilt
I made a quilt from this pattern in 1992. These are the colors I used, pasted into the book like the directions said. All the blocks were the same. They were set on point with a pink/green/cream print. The quilt was fast and easy to put together (of course! it's Eleanor Burns!). At the time I thought I'd like to make this pattern again, with scraps of reds and yellows for the flowers.
Candidate #3: Purple Tulips
Candidate #4: Pink tulips quilt top
So, which one to do? Isn't this a great problem to have? However I choose, I'll end up with a pretty quilt.
What is inspiring you this spring?
