Basket of Tulips Block

June 14, 2012

Hello Everyone

It has been a while since I have done a post, and I do apologize for my absence. The last two months have been very full on.

This lovely basket of Tulips block is a pleasure to make. I have chosen a selection of background fabrics to compliment the basket and tulip fabrics.

As I was selecting the fabrics for my background. I  gave my fabric draws a good tidy up and put my background fabrics in order. It is always amazing how different the neutral fabrics are in colour. I have placed them in order of  tone.  As you can see there is quite a difference in the tone. This is quite important when matching these neutral tones to the colours you are selecting for the rest of your quilt. The first pieces I put together were the tricking little tulips, I learn't the hard way to make sure you have your pieces arranged the correct way before you start to sew. Until next time Happy Stitching Sharon

In turn each week I will be doing this for each of my patterns and writing about each quilt.

Now that the holidays are well and truly over, and we have started the year 2020. I am back in my sewing room while the house is peacefully quiet, my process for starting the new year is to finish some of the quilts that did not get finished at the end of 2019. One of the quilts to finish is the Treasures in the scrap bin quilt from the sew along, and as I am working on it I would be like to share my thoughts with you.

Last night I had a wonderful impromptu visit from my lovely friend Anna she brought me the most beautiful bunch of flowers from her amazing garden. Such a special gift, I am truly blessed to have her as my friend. Which made me remember a block inspired by her Roses called Anna's Treasure from my Rambling Ways quilt.
