Starburst and Tulips

Intermediate Quilts

A new star and flower are born, along with another of my SewFasst® techniques.  So whichever appeals to you, it is included in the two pattern package.

These techniques involve cutting and sewing strips without cutting individual triangles. That makes this quilt easy to make and a delight to look at.  The illustration shows a 40″x40″ quilt, but a larger quilt (55″x70″) suggestion is included with the instructions, as well as the formula to make different block sizes.  Three different fabrics are used in the blocks.  These blocks could be set side by side or set together with a straight sashing.  Don’t you think it is more interesting if the blocks are offset?  Table runner instructions are included.  See a few Starburst samples in the GALLERY.

While I was playing around with this technique, I realized it would make a great tulip.  A tulip quilt has been on my list since I saw the tulip gardens of Keukenhof in the Netherlands.  This technique was perfect!  Quick techniques are also used to make the leaves.  The bright colors of tulips will brighten a room during any season.  Batiks were used for this 58″x70″ quilt since these fabrics are so intense in color.  The background could be dark, but then the flower, stem and leaf fabrics would need to be made in pastel or jewel tone fabrics.  Table runner instructions are included.   See a few Tulip Garden samples in the GALLERY.
