Spring is in the air...

She says ! WOW, we'd better prepare...

soon the tulips will colour our gardens...

This reminds me of a gorgeous quilt made by LUCY

some years ago...

Of course I fell in love with that quilt,

and Lucy had generously shared her pattern with me...

Now it's about time to finish it !

Still 3 more blocks to applique, then piece the whole top together ,

and choose a nice border...

And you know what ? I'm still even more in love with it !


Yesterday, our grandson Andrea (5 years old) was spending the afternoon with me

here's his own contribution...


  1. What a beautiful quilt it is going to be, Nadine!
    ...and what a special memory, sharing stitching time with your precious grandson!

  2. I too have a couple of the tulip blocks made, your one going to be wonderful. I love the picture your grandson made, it would make a great label for the back of the quilt.

  3. How gorgeous Nadine...love the little drawing...
    I love Tulips,,your quilt is going to be beautiful.
    Julia ♥

  4. I love tulips..... also because they are very Dutch ofcourse.....
    Already this a quilt(not even finished...) with memories! And she´s a real beauty!
    Also love Andrea´s picture!! A real artist!
    Have a great day!

  5. Yes Spring is definately in the air thank goodness... your quilt is going to look great so hurry up and finish it so we can see it ..lol....

  6. Your tulip blocks are bright and cheery. Your grandson is an artist - what a great interpretation from a 5 year old. I hope you post lots of photos of your garden tulips. They are one of my all time favourite flowers.

  7. Hello Nadine,
    I found little sprouts of tulips in my garden - love those little red & yellow early kind!

  8. Andréa a magnifiquement interprété
    cette belle tulipe comme sa Mamie. Et aujourd'hui sur la revue Quiltmania le quilt de Lucy est à l'honneur , on peut même le réaliser ces dames nous donnent le patron ! C'est vraiment un joli quilt pour annoncer le printemps ! Merci Nadine de nous montrer le tien . Amitié Mamifleur

  9. This is certainly a beautiful quilt Nadine, I like the yellow sashing also, so pretty! Your grandsons picture is delightful, always put away those pictures with a date on them. I treasure the small drawings my children have given me over the years.

  10. Wat een mooie bloemen! Dat wordt een fantastische quilt. En je kleinzoon kan erg goed tekenen! Hoe gaat het met je klosjes? Ik ben benieuwd!

  11. Oh I love your tulip quilt! I loved Lucy's as well. I was afraid I couldn't make the flowers scrappy enough!

  12. Wow Nadine! I love your version of the Tulip quilt! It is a fun block to sew hè. And the drawing is beautiful as well! Thanks for sharing


Thanks a bunch for your comments, they just make my day !
