Tulip Duet Quilt

Spring has sprung and so have the tulips.  My newest pattern has just been released and it features tulips, the regal flowers of spring.  I give you two applique centers to choose from.  In the pattern there are instructions for machine applique, template free hand applique and Hawaiian applique.  This wall hanging or table topper measures 54 inches.  It also would make a beautiful center of a queen size quilt.  I hope you have tulips to enjoy, because we don't have tulips that grow in Hawaii.  Visit my web site to order this pattern.

May Magazines

Coming soon to your local quilt store will be the Quilt Sampler, spring addition.  One of the chosen shops this year is Quilt Passions located in Kailua Kona, Big Island Hawaii.  They asked me to creat a quilt for this magazine.  What we have in the magazine is a pretty wall hanging, which has applique and patchwork.  I can't tell you too much about it, but it does have something tropical in the applique that I have seen as summer plants in other places than Hawaii.  There will be kits available for the wall hanging and also one for a queen sized quilt that just has the featured patchwork.  Watch for this magazine early May.

I also have a block in Quiltmakers 100 Block Magazine and I made the cover.  Never been a cover girl before!!! I will be taking part in a Blog Tour in early May when this magazine becomes available.  In the magazine I also have a table runner to give you an idea of how the block can be used.  From the cover of the magazine I can tell you there are some great blocks being featured from some great designers.  This will be a very good magazine for you to pick. 

Tulips are coming!!

I don't know about you but tulips just say spring to me. BUT we don't have tulips growing in the ground here in Hawaii. So I have created some of my own.  Two wall hanging size quilts from my soon to be released pattern, Tulip Duet, are at the quilters. What a good feeling to have them almost ready.  I am hoping to have the pattern ready for release before the end of the month.  I will post soom pictures once I get them back.
