Field of Tulips Quilt

Hello! My name is Crystal Hendrix. This is my very first Moda Bake Shop Recipe! I have had a lot of fun putting it together. You can visit me at my blog and see other things that I make.

This is a fun quilt to help get everyone in the spring spirit!

1 layer cake 1933 by Chloe’s Closet

1 charm pack 1933 by Chloe’s Closet

1 3/4 yard Bella Solid Feather (background color)

1 ½ yard green color for borders

3 1/2 yard of any color for the backing

5/8 yard of any color for the binding

Take from your layer cake and your charm pack, coordinating colors for the tulips flowers.

Cut layer cake piece into 10” x 6 7/8”

With the remaining piece of the layer cake, cut it into (4) 2 1/8” squares.

With the charm pack piece, cut it into (4) 2 ½ “squares.

With the Bella White fabric cut into (4) 2 ½” squares. Then draw a diagonal line across square.

Pin each 2 ½” white square to each 2 ½” colored square.

Sew a ¼” from the diagonal line on each side.

Cut on the line of each square.

Press open toward the colored side, then clip off tag pieces.

Arrange in the following diagram and sew together.

This makes 1 tulips flower. You will need 20 tulip flower blocks.

Once you have all of your flower blocks done, arrange your blocks to fit your preference.

For sashing, you will need to cut (49) 10”x2 ½” pieces out of your Bella white.

Then cut (20) 2 ½”x 2 ½” squares out of your green border color.

Lay out your design and sew each row into place. Press to one side of each row.

Once you have all of your rows (sashing and tulips) pin at seams and sew together. If you flip your sashing piece you will have your seams butt together nicely.

Now after all of your rows are sewed together, it is time for the green border you will need to cut (7) 5”x42”.
Then lay out your quilt top and with your borders. Sew the vertical pieces on first, then the horizontal pieces on.
After you have sewed on your borders and have pressed them, you can now baste, quilt as desired and bind.
