Row Along Spring Tulips

The temperatures have been
absolutely gorgeous here in Arizona
this last week.
A perfect time to 
pull out bright, happy fabric scraps
and work on 
Row 13 Spring Tulips
Row Along
 Lori announced this
is our last row
for the quilt.
 I really have enjoyed the process of
making a new row every two weeks.
 All 11 Spring Tulips are 
happily dancing
up and down,
 and have found their spot at the top of
the other rows.
 One of my goals in making this quilt was
to only use fabrics that I had in my scrap piles.
In order to have enough fabric to cut out
the tulip backgrounds
I improvised
and went even more scrappy,
using 3 different yellows.
I also used a wide selection of greens
for the leaves and stems.
 The use of various backgrounds makes
my quilt look quite different than Lori's sample,
the old proverb
Variety Is The Spice of Life
 holds true
especially in quilts.
Next step will be to sew all of the rows together.

the tulips look lovely - by the way can you even grow tulips in Arizona? Maybe in December or January :) before you know it we will all be complaining that it is too hot!

Jana said...

Love how it is coming together! Your scrappiness looks great!

lovely Nedra. Just finished my tulips last night and sewed the top this morning...I am amazed how excited this has made me to be able to make the rows, giggle a bit and enjoy Lori's creativity.

I'm so jealous. Yours look so perfect. Mine is a bunch of mess. I tried to sew my rows together and I really didn't end up matching at all. I'm sort of discouraged. All that work. Oh well. Your just a better sewer than me. love yours
