Tiptoe Through The Tulips..

Tulips have featured in my designs from the very beginning. In fact this quilt, 'In The Pink' was one of my first patterns and I still love it as much today and when I first made it over 9 years ago. Yes, I said NINE years ago. Wow, time travels fast when you're a designer. But you know what? When I look at this beauty, I realize that I have learnt a lot and I've made many more patterns since, but I would still design this stunning quilt today - I love it that much.
This is one of the rare quilts I actually use on my bed. I shake it out of the cupboard every March and I love how the pink brightens up my room. It reminds me of spring gardens, and of tulips on the dining table and of family and of course, of Easter. This is the quilt that's always on my bed come Easter and I'm always reminded that Red Tulips represent passionate love. I made this one in pink tulips because my DD is a pink girl and she loves this quilt as much as I do and she has had her eye on it for years! We all know it's really 'hers' I'm just borrowing it until the next bed quilt comes along.

Unfortunately for her, she has to wait because most of my quilts end up as wall quilts - they're so beautiful I want to look upon them as art pieces, which they rightfully are, even if I do say so myself!  I did start 'Tickled Pink' for her, which is a stunning one block wonder that's still in the WIP pile. And now that I think of it, every quilt with the work pink in it is.. somehow all down to her!

I love the language of flowers and as each tulip colour has it's own meaning, you can change the mood by changing the colours.
I still have plans to make this quilt again using monochromatic blues with Indigo tulips, a kind of 'black tulip' theme, I think it would be so cool and sophisticated.
Because it would take several lifetimes for me to make all my quilts in all the colorways I dream of, I always secretly hope that someone out there will make it in that pallette so I can ooohhh and ahhhhh over their beauty without having to create it myself. Well, I can dream, can't I??
