This quilt was made with “Sweet Orchard” fabrics by Sedef Imer of Down Grapevine Lane on the tulip flowers. The base of the flower heads is a Kona green solid. The stems and leaves are Carolyn Friedlander crosshatch fabric in green. The background is Kona Nautical.

This was a fun quilt to make because other than the tulip flowers and leaves it was improvised. Bobbie from Geeky Bobbin said she had a lot of fun quilting it too. She has hidden a butterfly, a snail and a dragonfly in the quilting. The bottom edge of the quilt has ferns and grass quilted in green thread.

The tulip pattern was from the Fat Quarter Shop 2011 Block of the Month for the tulip heads and leaves.

I am so happy with the custom work Bobbie did on this quilt! This is only my second time sending a quilt to a long arm quilter and I see more travelling to Bobbie in Toronto in the future.

The Modern Tulips Quilt was gifted to my sister.
