Tulip Patch Top

The wind this afternoon was not my friend! It took forever to hang my Tulip Patch Top on the garden fence and then the wind would never stop blowing, so the picture is not too great. Spring equals wind in Colorado, but I think this quilt screams spring and happy!

This is a design from Lori Holt found in her book Quilty Fun. I made it a little bigger with the green border. The green border is actually the only fabric I bought, everything else came from my stash or my mom's stash. :0)

Now, I have to decide how to quilt this beauty. It measures about 60 x 70 inches, so I could do it on my Pfaff with the wavy stitch I love or I could wait until my mom arrives back in town on Saturday and go use her long arm machine on Sunday. Frankly, I am less intimidated by quilting it on my Pfaff. I do want it pretty heavily quilted since it is going to be washed a lot as my friend goes through chemo and radiation treatments. I also want to get it done quickly, so I can get it to Kelly as soon as possible. I guess it is time to go set up my big tables for pinning!
