If April Showers Bring May Flowers...

what does an April deluge bring?  Perhaps mutant tulips?


We had some really heavy rain over the weekend and I was able to double the number of giant tulips I have.  These babies are 18" tall!  This is the Amsterdam pattern by Cloud 9 and it is free ... you can see it here.


And my design wall runneth over...


I have all the blocks made for this Hi Again quilt from the Mar/April 2016 edition of Quilting Quickly. Eighty one blocks in total... should end up around 100" square... it is for my son and daughter-in-law... I love the colors and the fabrics lend themselves nicely to this modern looking pattern.

Well the week has already been crazier than I planned... somehow went out to lunch twice and I'm doing dinner and play tonight... I NEED to stay home. You can't finish a quilt if you don't spend some time with your sewing machine... maybe tomorrow will be better...we'll see!

happy stitching-
carol fun

  3. I love the tulip blocks. We went to the Tulip festival on Mon. I need to do a post showing the beautiful fields.
