|Little Tulips (35" x 40")
I tried another Log Cabin pattern! 🌷🌷🌷
This pattern was from a book entitled Log Cabin Flower Quilts by Nancy Brenan Daniel (ISBN: 978-0881957426). I call it "Little Tulips" not because the tulips are especially small, but because I so rarely make small quilts that the size of this one is the first thing I notice when I look at it!

The tulip blocks (set on point) are 8" finished. The flowers are made of thirties reproduction fabrics. I chose these because I wanted to use a gifted panel on the back, and that panel featured the same type of print.

I wish I could have centered the panel a bit better on the back, but I had NO wiggle room! It was almost exactly the same size as the top; thus, I did what I could. I bound it in the same yellow I used as the flowers' centers.
It is tiny but colorful. It was fun to try another way of using a Log Cabin block--there will be more experiments in the future.
Happy Quilting! 😸
