A Finish and a Start

  


   
I found both of these fabrics in my stash. I cut a bit of the orange and yellow to add into the pink stripe. I love striped bindings on quilts. 
 

Tulip quilt sample finished! I intentionally did not quilt a petal on the flower and a part of the leaf to show what the edge looks like without stitching.
   

On to the next! I also need a new sample for the Piecing Quilting in Layers workshop. I may have gone overboard in buying fabric…. But this Moda dogwood line was so perfect, again, I decided not to be judgemental, just buy it all. And a few add ins, too. . 

I’ve been thinking of a quilt that looks like a branching, flowering tree just bursting into bloom. (Yes, I have a raging case of Spring fever.) My plan is to insert straight strips to look like branches and some thinner, curved strips to look twiggy. I’m not opposed to trying some center squares, either.
  

I’m trying a few blocks to see if this is going to work. I really love teaching this class because everyone does something different. It’s fun to just come with great fabric and see what piecing techniques will make the quilt special.

  1. The tulip is exquisite! LOVE it… are u a convert for orange yet? šŸ™‚

  2. Looking good šŸ˜€

  3. LOVE IT– the colors are stunning!

  4. Great binding choice. I’m always amazed how a binding can perfectly complete a quilt. And other time a facing is the answer. Cool idea to leave areas unquilted to demo the impact of quilting line. This next one is looking mighty interesting. A very different feel!
