It seems I'm busy working at flourishing my quilter garden, this winter... A few months ago, Lucy ("Quilting with the Past") had shown a wonderful tulips quilt top. I literally fell in love with these tulips, and she kindly shared her pattern with me. Well I've been a good girl and today I can show you my work on them, up to now...
There will be 16 blocks in total. The background is cream and blue. I have absolutely no merit for that, as I was totally inspired with Lucy's choice. Some might think that I'm just copying her, without trying to be original, but I 'd rather consider this as a tribute to her. And why would I change something beautiful ?
Up to now, I completed 5 blocks (first photo). The second photo shows my fabrics for the sashings, cornerstones and borders (on the left). On the bottom center, you can see one tulip made by Lucy, placed on some fabric she sent to me : these will make the label of my quilt ("Lucy's Tulips"), and on the right are some other tulips in preparation.........
I really love that quilt so much and I'm delighted with the process : easy and rewarding.
THANKS, LUCY !!!
So this Sunday was devoted to "planting the seeds of love". I also prepared two more Applique Delight blocks, ready to be made this week, my goal being to reach seven( maybe eight ?)blocks done. I'd like to catch up with May Britt, but it's an illusion : each time I make one block, she makes two !!! LOL This challenge is funny and very stimulating, a good way to achieve good and quick results......
Now I'll spend this evening on my stitchery ( still dealing with flowers)........
- Sipping my coffee, while "talking" with my quilt friends
- A delicious soup I made, following Judy L.' recipe (see her blog's last posts). A MUST !
- A nice outing with DH
- Very sweet weather today (strange for the season, however...)
- A good book to read.

And to finish this post, just my best warm thoughts to my friend Darlene, hoping she didn't find too much trouble at her mother's, in Texas. You're in my thoughts, dear !
