A few days ago I borrowed the book Liberated string quilts from Gwen Marston. I love this book! Because I finished my String Star , I thought it would be nice to make a new block for a new project ( Yes a new UFO ,lol) . I fell in LOVE to these tulipquilt. I made the pattern smaller. Grab my small left over basket and start to sew . ( Why do I always make a mess when I am sewing...... )
I have done the applique by hand. As you can see I din't pin it with many pins ... So the block is more "Maverick"as I wanted *LOL*
I am not satisfied with the the stem . The thicker part under the "tulip"is to tall...
I love to have a applique project again. Oh my .. I have missed that. It is so relax , sitting on the couch and do the stitches :c) Even if I don't know if I reproduce this quilt or make a other quilt of the block
