Promenading Tulips Quilt

“Promenading Tulips”, by Lea Anne Brummett of Podunk Pretties, is Lea’s own overall design. However, since she combined designs from other quilters she can’t provide a full pattern (due to copyright restrictions). She does offer enough hints that clever quilters should be able to create something similar.

The tulip block is from Lori Holt’s book “Quilty Fun: Lessons in Scrappy Patchwork”. Lea added a center block so that four tulips form a sort of pinwheel configuration.

The fabulous border is based on Kari Carr’s book “Just around the Corner: Quilts with Easy Mitered Borders”. It looks like Lea used Kari’s overall method, with piano key piecing instead of a wide strips of fabric, for the final border. Yo-yo flowers finish it off. (Kari’s method is a wonderful border treatment for any type of quilt.)
