Making this tulip quilt is taking time.
Each of the tulip heads has 9 sections to sew together and I have hand sewn these. all
The leaves are made in two parts, each part has 3 sections....
Then there is the stem sewing the two parts together..
And then the actual tulip head is sewn onto the leaf section, to make one unit.
There are 30 of these..And they are not finished.. now they have a cream fabric sewn between the tulips before they are sewn into the patchwork blocks.. whew!! All this has been hand sewn although I intend to sew the tulip head to the leaf section by machine.
I have to have 192 of these.. I have only cut half so far!
But I am sure once it is finished it will be very pretty and will make a lovely warm quilt for a friend of mine. And I love sewing it all.
Too cold to be out and about so inside sewing is the best way to spend a cold afternoon.
Hope you're in out of the cold and enjoying what ever you like to do too.
