Twistin' Tulips is a bright and cheery spring quilt that is sure to chase away those winter time blues. I used the minty greens in Bonnie and Camille's line Scrumptious for Moda that was released last fall. At present there are not too many shops who still have these fabrics, so if you find them, be sure to snatch them up. I am in love with this pretty quilt. It looks so cute on my bed with the little zig-zag border hanging over the edge of the bed. It has such a happy feeling to it. I intentionally quilted it quite lightly. My husband was complaining about the quilts currently on the bed feeling a bit like rugs....so I decided to let my Mormon quilter out, and quilt me a nice puffy quilt.
There is a story that goes along with that. When I was young, my mother took me into a fabric shop on occasion that we loving referred to as "The Wicked Witches Lair." This shop owner seemed as old as the hills to me, and not very friendly. She used to tell my mother which fabrics she could buy, and which she couldn't depending on her opinion of our project requirement.One day when I was in shopping for a quilt back with mom she suggested, "You Mormon's do not know how to quilt. You need to take a class. A quilt should not be puffy. You are in luck, because I am teaching one." Mother signed up, and went to class to learn the proper way to quilt....unfortunately she only finished a couple of blocks before deciding that it didn't matter to her what the wicked witch thought, she was going to make as many "Mormon quilts" as she wanted, because she liked puffy! I tend to agree, and this is such a cozy quilt.
Wouldn't it be pretty? I think I may have to start another one!
