Kathy's Tulips

This fun and whimsical piece came to me from a new client named Kathy. She brought me this piece, and referenced examples of quilting that she liked - and they were on my own website! That's always fun! I occasionally have people show me photos or patterns (from other quilters online or in magazines) and ask for the same treatment to their quilt. I can never agree to do the EXACT same treatment, because I wouldn't want to straight-out copy another person's work. But it's always helpful to see photos of work (no matter who did it) that my clients like, because it gives me an idea of what shapes, motifs, and ideas they like, which gives me a guide for deciding what to put on their quilt.

I know lots of readers will want to know more about the pattern and fabrics for this, so I asked Kathy. Here's what she said...
The pattern was Totally Tulips by Missouri Star Quilt Company. Jenny did a tutorial on it on YouTube. I watched the tutorial and ordered a layer cake of Tula Pink's Tabby Road from MSQ to make the tulips and leaves. The borders are Kaffe Fasset Paint Pots.

It's such a lovely piece, and Kathy executed the piecing so beautifully. We decided to use TWO layers of Hobbs wool (machine washable and dryable). It has TONS of dimensions and will be so great as a bed quilt!
