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
