Tulip quilt block – Tulip factory QAL

Today we’re making the first block and we’re making it with foundation piecing.

See page 3 of the pattern for details on making the block.

If you’re going to be making the quilt with traditional piecing the next tutorial is coming in a couple of days. Check the schedule.

You can make the block with regulary copy paper and sewing through the paper, or using freezer paper and reusing the template. Check out the video on freezer paper below to learn the technique.

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.
