Tulips have always been some of my favorite flowers. They’re absolutely gorgeous, and are even more beautiful in quilt form! I found this quilt form Missouri Star Quilt Company, and I couldn’t wait to try it!
To make this 2-block set, all you need to do is modify some half-square triangles. For the bottom block (the leaves and the stem,) do some regular half-square triangles, then arrange them.
Add a “stem” by sashing the middle of these arranged blocks, as Jenny shows in the tutorial below. As for the top block, or the flower bud, you’ll make it by modifying the half-square triangle a bit more.
About 3/4 of the block will be one color, with a tiny triangle on one of the corners. You’ll arrange this with the bottom two squares’ triangles facing outward on the bottom, and the top two inward on the top.
Once you sew these two blocks together, you have a full tulip. You can use as many or as few fabrics as you’d like, and it’s super simple to put together. I’m still putting mine together, and so far, I love it!
How are you going to make your tulips?
