Spring Tulips - Quilted Wall hanging

 Hello there...happy Friday!

I love springtime and nothing says spring like tulips!

This past week I've been sewing all spring things and have one finish to share with you today.

I saw this Twirling Tulips video by Misty Doan with Missouri Star Quilt Company and became inspired to try it, with my own spin of course :)

In the video Misty uses their Drunkard Path template. I am terrible at sewing curves - for every good attempt I have five failures, and five times I pull out my seam ripper!  I know practice makes perfect but I'm not there yet.

I pulled out my trusty Creative Grids Round Up tool to cut the drunkard path pieces. The Round Up Tool allows you to cut both 4- and 5-inch drunkard path pieces. I used five-inch drunkard path pieces for my wall hanging. I used Heat - N - Bond lite behind each square before using the Round Up Tool.

After cutting I arranged the pieces on a 6.5-inch background fabric forming the tulip shape.

I then sewed the 4-patch together and voila a tulip appeared!

I used scraps from my Sherri & Chelsi basket to create the tulips. I love the colors and ditzy prints which have a lovely spring feeling to them.

The tulips were fun to make, I used rayon thread and a blanket stitch around each flower. My finished quilt measures 36 x 36 inches.

Now I must decide wall-hanging or table topper?

What do you think?

Until next time .... happy crafting!
