WiP | Blooming Tulips Quilt


i love when inspiration strikes! a few weeks ago i was browsing Pinterest (like we do) when i found this quilt. a tulip quilt has been on my list for awhile now, especially since I live in Holland, Michigan, home of Tulip Time.

so i started sketching out a design from my inspiration quilt, but I decided to make my flower and stems curved to be more representative of the iconic flower.

i laid my blocks like a field of tulips, for a nice size wall quilt. now to just figure out how the quilting!?

  3. That's such a cute quilt. We're still waiting for our tulips to come up here in the Pacific NW. They're running a few weeks late this year.

  4. So very cute! The tulips are lovely and the diagonal effect of the piecing really takes the whole thing up a notch.

  6. What a perfect quilt idea for someone who lives in Holland, MI! Your changes make a lot of sense...the leaves are much more appropriate now. Your color choices are wonderful! Such a beautiful quilt. Can't wait to see it finished.

2017 New Quilt Blogger Blog Hop

for the last several weeks i have been participating in the 2017 New Quilt Bloggers Blog Hop, hosted by Yvonne ( Quilting Jet Girl ), Beth ( Cooking Up Quilts ), and Leanne ( She Can Quilt ). while i have been blogging for a little while, this blog hop has been great to hone my blogging skills and meet other quilt bloggers. i have been crafty most of my life, i even learned to sew when i was younger. but it didn't really stick. after college i was living in Iowa and on a whim i bought a cheap sewing machine and began a back and forth with sewing. fast forward a few years, i got married and pulled that sewing machine out again and this time actually made a quilt top (that sat for at least 3 years before i quilted it). sewing again was pushed to the side as i was finishing my master's program and job hunting.  well after landing a job, moving, looking for a house. we found out we were expecting. though it was not to be and i miscarried in march 2011. during the next ye

2019 Quilters Meet & Greet

Benita of Victoriana Quilt Designs approached me if I wanted to participate in a Quilter's Meet and Greet. And since both kiddos are in school this year, I actually have a little more time to actually blog, so I figured this was a great time to join the fun.

I was set up with my husband on a blind date, and were married 6 months later. In January 2020 we will be celebrating 12 years of marriage! This by far was one of the craziest things I've done!

Triangle Rainbow Spectrum Mini Quilt | A Finished Quilt

Another quilt finish, oh my! Right before my family and I moved to the UP, a few of my quilty friends started a little swap group. We made a mini with our theme for that swap. Then we would get together for dinner and swap mini's. So I have continued to swap with them and traveling down to visit and swap, minus a few weather hiccups. Well this round we went virtual due to COVID-19, but still had an enjoyable time. And bonus for me I didn't have to travel. So this round was rainbow themed. Between putting our house of the market and our upcoming move, I was at a lose as to what I wanted to make. Lately I've been playing around with different angles and I love triangles, so why not a rainbow triangle mini. I used 2 inch equilateral triangles cut from my stash. I played around with the layout quite a bit it get it just right. Once it was stitched together, I added the the low volume white as a border. To finish it off I used black for my binding, I love that it looks like a fr
