the groundhog saw... tulips!

Still sewing along with Lori Holt's Quilty Fun Sew Along! 

Never mind that grouchy groundhog. This week's spring tulips have me absolutely convinced that Spring is almost here!

I should probably admit that I spent a full week considering which Pam Kitty Morning fabrics to use for the tulips. First I pulled little dots, then plaids. But I REALLY wanted to try the stripes. And I am so glad that I did. The stripey tulip reminds me of those fun parrot tulips that I love. And I'd plant my own if I had a yard!

I used a big pink dot to balance the wide stripes.

I can totally imagine a whole quilt full of these tulips. Kinda like my great grandmother's flower beds. And there's even a pattern for a quilt packed with tulips in the Quilty Fun book!

Next week we'll make falling leaves. What, falling leaves in February?! Well, mine will be bright and happy. 

See you soon!
