A Flimsy of Tulips


Tulips
In 30s reproduction fabrics and Kona Snow
81 x 91
For now it's just a top. 


Blocks are nine inches
Not sure when or how it will get quilted.  But it's a top now after all these years. Can't top that!

(The sun was not in the right spot when I took the photos. Well, on second thought, the sun was in the right spot - in the sky. I just don't know how to take photos. So they look sort of sepia-ish).

Sometimes I just want to come over and roll in your scrap bins... (That's not weird, right?)
I always love your happy scrappy quilts!

Just beautiful! Perfect color background to really make the prints shine. And I love the red sparky pieces. LOVE it to pieces Kathy! I could come scoop this one up.:)

OMG, what treasures you must have hiding in your house. If we don’t die until our projects are finished, you will live forever, my friend! And if Gayle gets to come over and roll around in your scraps (no, that is NOT weird, Gayle), I would like to as well! We could even help you fond---- er, SORT them. :-) (and do you mean to tell me that Bonnie & Camille didn’t invent the tulip block? LOL) (wink)

Ahhh, I love the sepia-ish look, so subdued! It's a great looking top!

Those 30s prints look really great! Not sure how you do it and your quilts are always quite large! Another winner for sure!

What a charming quilt. Love the different fabrics you used to post. And all your reproduction fabrics.

This has a lovely feel to it - old-fashioned and gentle, and the little touches of red just lift everything.

Kathy, my first thought was 'oh how wonderful it looks bathed in sunshine'! It's so beautiful and I really love the narrow sashing and tiny squares :)

It looks like an authentic vintage quilt--love it!

This is beautiful!! Will have to add it to my '101 future to make' quilts, lol. And the lighting I think is perfect...late afternoon?
blessings, jill

Well, if this isn't the true colors, you will have to start a vintage tulip quit next.
