Tulip Fields is such a fun quilt to make with its tiny 3” finished tulip block quarters – each one is the cause of much squealing and delight as we piece units, swap fabrics, trim to size, slice on the diagonal (Up the center of the center string from corner to corner, not ACROSS the strings as some of my students found out after a couple of Whooops! cuts -- We worked on string block parts all the way up until the lunch break we are now enjoying.
