This Promenading Tulips Quilt is Simply Wonderful |
No Exact Pattern is Available but There Are Enough Hints to Construct Your Own!
Every time we come across this quilt we need to stop and admire it for awhile. Everything about it appeals to us. The lovely tulips, the colors, the scrappy look … and the border treatment is simply spectacular. To finish it off, the quilting is creative and gorgeous.
“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.)
Lea has written several blog posts about this quilt. The main links are included here but be sure to follow the links in her articles as well.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources.
