Stitch up a Tulip Garden in Your Favorite Spring Colors!
Make a set of these charming place mats to welcome spring, and enjoy them all through the season. Tulips in pretty colors are just the right antidote for gray and chilly days.
The pattern is an easy one to complete, even for beginners with solid cutting and stitching skills. Select your favorite spring colors in tonal fabrics to make your own tulip garden for your table.
The tulip flower itself is simple piecing. The stem and leaves are paper pieced. However, they can be easily pieced the standard way as well. Simply cut apart the paper piecing template and make cutting templates for the individual shapes. Be sure to include a 1/4″ seam allowance on all sides of each shape.
The finished place mats, from designer Nancy Walhout Recker, are 20″ x 14″.
The “Tulip Place Mats” pattern is included in Springtime Quilting from Quilter’s World magazine.
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!
