As I was gathering ideas for Spring decor projects, I remembered this Tulip Twist pattern and fabric kit I had purchased at Front Porch Quilt Shop two years ago. I pulled it out and made it along with my other recent tulip projects. I love the movement this piece creates! Both with the turning flowers and the dancing border.
The border was perhaps the most time-consuming part of this project. It involved making strip sets of each color of fabric sewn to a white strip and then cutting those down into 1.5″ pieces. (Small!) What took up the most time was sewing all those 1.5″ pieces together. The finished product was worth it though!
I took the opportunity to play around with the quilting, trying different designs in each flower. I used some of my rulers and a bit of freehand.
Ironically my real tulip garden outside looks like it’s not going to bloom this year, but at least I’ll have these cute flowers inside!
