The Tulip Shop Quilt
Making the Tulip Shop Quilt
Tulip Shop is a fat eighth quilt pattern. It was a very quick quilt to piece – cut and sewn together in just a couple days. This tulip block is pieced traditionally with half-square triangle + easy corner triangle techniques. The block finishes at 12″ x 12″ and is then set on point (i.e. at a diagonal) with this taupe herringbone print (5154-11) as an accent. The result is this fun checkerboard design!
To finish up the top, I used one of my favorite Love Note prints – the taupe “Alcott text” print (SKU 5156-17) for a simple border.
For the backing, I used the main floral from the collection “Rose in Bloom” in the “Dove” (taupe) color.
My friend Kaitlyn over at Knot and Thread Design quilted this using the “Interlocked Orange Peel” pantograph by Karlee Porter at Intelligent Design. It is so simple and stunning!
P.G. Wodehouse said it best: “Flowers are happy things.” This is definitely a cheerful springtime quilt.
