Think Spring (!?) in September

ScrappyBlueFeatureBlockWhile some of us anticipate the official arrival of Autumn later this month, this 9-inch traditional Tulip block celebrates the Spring that is around the corner for the rest of us.

You can make the block scrappy or not, but each block should have:

White background – solid or white-on-white (WOW)

Flower fabric(s) – color of your choice

Bud fabric – darker, but same color as your flower fabric

center square – green

I made this scrappy blue one.

The fabric guidelines and my directions for making this block can be found here:

Tulip Quilt Block Pattern

You may make a maximum of 9 blocks for chances in the drawing at the end of the month. The target set size for the winners will be 48 blocks.

If you make multiple block pairs, you can use the same white background and green center in all your blocks.
