Tiptoe Through The Tulips Pattern Introduction

What's the last thing to do before a big finish? You have to remember to cross those T's and dot those I's... and let's just say that I've literally been dotting those last I's this week to share with you a preview of my upcoming pattern, "Tiptoe Through The Tulips", to be released in March 2017.

"Tiptoe Through The Tulips" is for the intermediate to advanced quilter with a variety of piecing techniques, including curved piecing, applique, as well as traditional piecing... let's just say there's no chance of getting bored! The individual blocks measure 24", and even though I finished this to fit our king size bed, it can obviously be made into a smaller version for a throw or twin size finish.

There are two color groupings that I used throughout the quilt, firstly a pink and blue colorway...

And then an orange and purple colorway, with the same green arrow/leaves and yellow applique accents to tie it all together. I used raw edge applique for the small circle, and the foil applique method for the center circles.

Like my first quilt pattern, I will be sending this off to Iva again to work her magic. If you've not seen Iva's work, then be sure to check out her Instagram feed... can't you just imagine this quilt once it has been quilted and has a little crinkle to it?

Right now I am looking for intermediate to advanced quilters for pattern testing to work on this quilt block. Are you interested and have time in February?  If so, then send me an e-mail at and let me know if you've pattern tested before.
