    Spring Tulips Wallhanging

    Just finished up this wallhanging for my boss who loves tulips. I hope she likes it! It's my first time doing any machine quilting and I wasn't too sure about the wavy matchstick quilting until it was all finished and ironed. Now I think I like it. :-)

    P.S. The tulips are paper-pieced and although nothing special, still an original design. I used Quilt Assistant to help me make the paper-piecing templates...it's a wonderful tool!

    Perfect! A refreshing pop of Spring. Like the 3- effect.

    What is Quilt Assistant?
    I know it is a software program but how does it work?

    Quilt Assistant is an open source (i.e. free) program that helps you convert your own drawings into paper-piecing templates or helps you make paper-pieced designs from photos or other graphics. If you search for it in your search engine you can find the program and the guy who made it also has done some nice tutorials describing how to use it.

    (disclaimer: I'm *not* associated with Quilt Assistant in any way, just think it's a super useful tool for paper-piecing! I'm not sure of the quilting board's link rules, so I haven't linked here to the program's website or tutorial on how to use it.)

    Thank you for posting. Your quilting is wonderful and really makes your tulips pop!

    I am a fan of paper piecing and did not know about the software. Thanks. I often have photos or draw something I would like to paper piece.

    Can't wait to see what you quilt next.

    PS: it is ok to post a direct link as long as you are not affiliated with it, as you stated.

    Thanks for replying.
    I did not know about QA. It does seem like a useful tool.
    I googled it and now have the webite bookmarked. Tomorrow, I will check it out more thoroughly.
    Thanks again.
