Quilty Fun, Tulip Mini Quilt

I've had such a blast working on this tulip mini quilt for my sewing room! I can't tell you how much I love this, and really - the pictures don't do it justice at all, it's so much brighter and happy looking in real life. The tulip pattern is from Lori's book Quilty Fun, which I've used again and again since receiving a copy last year. I love the row-a-long quilt from the book but I know I haven't got a place to hang the whole quilt, so I figured there was just enough space above my design wall in my sewing room for a tulip mini quilt ;-)

Ah it makes me happy just looking at it! If you have the book, you should really make these blocks, they're so fun. I went for a scrappy look to use up a bunch of new fabrics we've got in recently for Sew and Quilt. I'm so pleased with the binding, it's a new Darlene Zimmerman print which I think set's it off nicely, and of course I had to go for some Lori Holt fabric for the backing - it would have been rude not to!


  1. This is adorable! This gives me an idea for a wall quilt for an odd space in my kitchen - thanks for the inspiration!

  2. Jesse, that is a lovely mini quilt. It would also be good along a shelf or above a window or door. Love your fabric choices.

  3. Looks wonderful in your sewing room! So cheerful.

  4. Really sweet fabrics...i just used the same binding today for a stars and stripes applique for baby onesies.

  5. Another awesome quilt for your wall- I love the shape of this one, so unusual.

  6. Do you have a pattern that I can print out for the tulip. I have not wanted to make a quilt but I love the piece with the tulips since that is my favorite flower. I want to try and make one for my craft room. Thanks
