Tulip Quilting

These Monday mornings just keep getting here faster.   I wasn't going to post for Design Wall Monday because my wall is pretty much the same.   Other things have been whispering "PICK ME!"  Okay they scream at me.  The one that has been screaming the loudest gets the attention.  So at the last minute this morning the decision was made to take a picture with poor lighting.   Most of my time has been spent quilting one of my favorite quilts.
Here's a picture of the quilt taken when the top was finished.  The pattern is of my own design using Lori Holts tulip block.
 The yo-yo's and inner scalloped border really give this quilt a little extra kick.   

And since this is Design Wall Monday here's my dusty design wall.  I wish you could see how bright and cheery it is in here when the sun is shining.   So much color everywhere!  LOVE IT!  
I've also hung up this quilt top(I forgot I made)  with hopes of quilting inspiration.  So far there's none.  The plan was to offer this one as a free tutorial but LIFE stepped in and changed my plans.  Hopefully I can find my notes and finish the tutorial soon.

  2. Such cheerful quilts! The scalloped border is very intriguing. (I confess that I have pages of border ideas, and I've gone to "creative borders" workshops....and all too often I want to git 'er done so I just slap on slab borders.)

  23. What a beauty! The quilting is incredible.... but I must say, I love the setting you put your tulip blocks in. The colourful, scrappy sashing and 9 patch cornerstones add such a wonderful element to that design. And the scallops? WOW! Each of your pictures is just one piece of eye candy after another!
