More on the Tulips

 I have been making progress with the tulips of the last post. 

See below a couple of pics of the start of the build-up process to make a quilt.

 I don’t have a pattern…it is just developing organically as it progresses.

I am enjoying the process and rather like the element of surprise as things just seem to come together.

I had made some small 1/2 square triangles and was able to use them as part of the framework for the tulips.

Learning the quilters’ jargon, I had the opportunity last week to join a couple of other quilters with a UFO.  (Unfinished Object – for beginners like me).

It was great because I had started a quilt over a year ago and had got stuck in the process.  Yesterday I finished the quilt top, and made up a backing, and pinned the three layers.  Cotton is ready and tomorrow I intend to start quilting the three layers.


More to come.
