Default Indiana Tulips

I am trying to organize my quilts into one album and found a picture of this quilt. It was my second attempt an hand-quilting and I cheerfully put a lot of markings on it! Then as time went by, I second guessed myself about it, but did get it completed in a couple of years. We were waiting on a home we wanted to move into and this kept me busy! The pattern is in the book Encyclopedia of Classic Quilt Patterns by Leisure Arts and calledlate-2011-early-2012-126-small-.jpg Spring Beauties. It is 88" by 88".

It's very pretty! Something to be very proud of. It takes me a looong time to hand quilt a quilt. I am doing more FMQ now so I can get more quilts off my bucket list.

It's funny, I just printed off this pattern. It was only a 6" block and I thought that I would join two of them together to make a 12" block just like you did. Now I know just what it will look like, thank you.

That's beautiful. So Springy - and it would be a wonderful way to use up scraps.

Beautiful, I like machine quilting so I can make quilts faster. When I use to hand quilt, I didn't enjoy it near as much as I do machine quilting.
