I think you all might remember this one.  This is the one I tried to sew, and failed, while I was recovering from my thyroid cancer treatment back in January.  It was a mess!!

If you’re a subscriber, have you gotten the new issue of American Patchwork and Quilting??  It would be the April 2022 issue and the cover looks like this…


Look closely at your issue.  Carla of Longarm Quilting Inspirations and I teamed up (with a little help from Kayla) to make this amazing tulip quilt.  If you’re not a subscriber, this will be on the newsstand on February 4th.


I’m super excited about it.  This one has been on my radar for years to make…and it FINALLY happened.


You know me…every quilt has a back story and this one is no different.  Grab some coffee or your favorite beverage and let me tell you the story.
