Tulip factory quilt pattern

Quilt details

Quilt size: 64” x 82”.

The quilt can be made traditionally or using foundation piecing.

Both methods are demonstrated on video for each block type. Templates for both techniques are included.

If you’ve never done foundation piecing this is the time to try. You can always make it traditionally if you don’t like it.

The skill level required is intermediate though if you’ve done a bit of quilting but you still consider yourself a beginner you may wish to give it a go. Particularly if using foundation piecing.

This quilt is fat quarter friendly.

My book Turnabout Patchwork

“Turnabout Patchwork. Simple quilts with a twist” is all about playing with blocks – making a block, slicing it up, and turning or repositioning the pieces to make a completely different block (sometimes two smaller blocks) to yield endless quilt tops.

Buy individual chapters of my book

Now that my publisher is going out of business I have bought the rights to publish my book. Now you can download individual chapters. Each digital download is a bundle with 4 quilt patterns in it.

As well as the instructions and fabric needs to make the blocks you’ll find a section on quiltmaking basics at the end of the pattern that discusses:

  • Tools
  • Squaring up blocks
  • Borders
  • Assembly and quilting
  • Binding

    I’m looking forward to QAL. Already have my pattern and fabric already to to go.

    My silly question, can we watch videos now? Do we need a special link to watch?

    I love your tutorials and congratulations on 715. I think I’ve been watching you from the beginning

    Happy Quilting Dianne

  3. Hi Dianne, videos aren’t public yet. They’ll become available as we progress through the QAL.


  4. I am seriously considering joining the Tulip factory QAL. I have a question, “Do I need to purchase your book, Turnabout Patchwork?”
