Tulip Quilt Finished

The quilt is very simple:
  •   Crop applique to about 8 by 9 1/2 inches.
  •   Cut 1 1/4 inch strips to frame applique. (finishes at 3/4) 
  •   Cut borders 3 inches wide and corners at 3 by 3.
  •   Baste waste canvas to cross stitch areas.
  •   Stitch on date and your initials.  Pull out canvas threads.
  •   Layer backing, batting and top. 
  •   Baste, quilt, and bind. 


 My quilt is quilted in the ditch on both sides of the inner border and around the corner squares.  There is a cross hatch on the applique and the flower is outlined.  I bound it next and then quilted the corner squares.  I may still do some quilting on the green border.  Finished quilt measures 14 by 15 1/4.

All done!
