A Bright Project on a Dreary Day


We have had so many cold, rainy, dark days this month that I decided to make something very bright for my next project.

This six-inch tulip block is a fun piece.

How can polka dot tulips not be fun?

I am still big on pink and orange. It seems others are finally beginning to appreciate the color. I just read that orange is a hot color for decorating this year.

I also used a couple of the greens in that striped fabric I bought last week.

In case you didn't see it, here's another pic:

I just love to have all those coordinating shades of green to add to projects like this one.

I made four six-inch blocks and put them together to form a 12-inch square of polka dot tulips on point.


Doesn't this look like a fun one? It's from Carol Doak's book, 40 Bright and Bold Paper-Pieced Blocks.

Oh, these are gorgeous! And I love Carol Doak. I took a paper piecing class from her and she also spent time teaching us hand-quilting techniques...such a generous teacher.

Such a beautiful quilt block and I really like the fabric choices too. I use to do a lot of quilting, but havn't done any for several years, however I always find the different designs fascinating and I love to see how the different fabrics change the blocks. Thanks also for stopping by and leaving such kind comments, I really appreciate it. Hugs, Marty
