Growin' Tulips

I finished stitching the binding last evening on Growin' Tulips. At this point I am declaring it finished even though I don't have a label or hanging sleeve on it yet. I'll do that later.


Here is detail on how I quilted the bottom border.


And now I've got quilt #4 in the series started and up on the design wall for background option consideration. I have decided on my purple flower fabrics and in this quilt the panels will be staggered with a border section added at the tops and bottoms. All I need to decide yet is if I want the background gradient to be flipped around like this photo.


Or do I want the background gradient to have the blue side up in all panels. Oh the decisions!

  1. Hi Terri - LOVE the series. Not that you asked me or anything, but the fabric flipped looks more interesting. Thanks for sharing your work - so enjoyable to see it in progress!!!

  2. I like the first option, but looking at your completed Tulips your first option flips it that way...so I'd go with your second option and mix it up a bit. Am I making any sense at all?? Lol
    LOVE the series!

  3. I like the second option better. I can concentrate on the flowers better without my eyes bouncing around the back fabrics too much.

  11. Growin' Tulips is fantastic! Your border and quilting is perfect. My initial gut choice for your next in the series was the second photo but when I go back and study them I'm really torn. Could you make both?!
