    Thank you everyone for all the kind words and compliments! I'm posting the image from EQ7 so you can see how the block is made. I think it will show you better than a closeup. I used the 1 1/2" finished Creative Curves ruler designed by Virginia A. Walton to cut the curved units. They are sort of like a Drunkard's Path but the corner (concave) pieces are smaller and the pie-shaped (convex) pieces are larger. The idea for the tulips came from a pattern for a table runner that was in some catalog, can't remember which, a few years ago. A few tweaks, some help from EQ and this was the end result.

    I posted the EQ7 image in lieu of a closeup. Check out my last post, please. Thanks for all the compliments.

    Please see my last post where I included an EQ7 image of the block. There really is not a pattern. The red tulip is the Parkinson's symbol so that sort of dictated color choices. Thank you.

    Forgot to mention that it also is a beautiful quilt!
    If one's family has not been touched by Parkinson's then they really have no idea how awful this disease can be. My aunt and uncle have a fantastic support group that meets once a month. My uncle always came home saying how blessed he was and how we all needed to really pray for this or that person and/or their family. My sympathies to you for your loss. Thank you so much for your kind words and encouragement.
