Holy tulip stems


Now now this is a big block–36″ long.  The tulips were fun to make, just 2 1/2″ strips and some flying geese.  I was warned to be very careful on the stems and I read the directions very carefully.  It’s just that the block is a little different than “normal” quilt block stems.  See that white space between the stem and the leaf.  Yup, that’s where I went wrong.

Needless to say, I did some seam ripping and some patchwork that wasn’t in the directions.  One stem is not exactly like the two others, but this is what I love about quilting.  Never a mistake, only a happy accident.  No one will ever know except me.  And maybe it was meant to be that way anyway.

The block is cute, but I dont think I’m making a whole quilt of them.

have a great day
