Tulip: The Movie!

Tulips, Free Motion Quilting, TutorialGood Morning, Quilters!

I’m a movie star!  Well…at least my hands are…

Tulip Time is appearing at The BERNINA USA Facebook Theater!

Read the movie synopsis on page 104 of Free Motion Machine Quilting 1-2-3 HERE

The plot was first revealed here at The Inbox Jaunt (with step-by-step photos).

Tulips, Free Motion Quilting, TutorialTulip Time is one of my favorite motifs.  This easy motif is a very versatile actor and can serve as a border, a double border or fill a square block by stitching the flowers along the diagonal axes of the block.  (see page 105).

So pop yourself a little popcorn and watch this quick movie short before heading off to YOUR sewing room!

I’m off to makeup, dahlings,

Tulip Border, FMQ, Spring SamplerAdd Tulip Time to the two edge borders of your quilt.

If you were stitching this motif on a middle border, you could stitch in the ditch to connect each tulip.

Later this week we will do a re-cap with links to all the steps in this quilt…

Of course it’s not a quilt until the binding is added and it has a label!!

Happy Stitching!
