Evening in the Garden Quilts

Adventures in Fabric Art

WIP Wednesday: Tulips!



I don’t know if I’ve ever had more trouble photographing fabric than these four fabrics.  Every light in my studio is on (cue country song), and it’s daytime, but I still can’t get a true picture.  Take my word that these fabrics really do play nice together.  The pink is a little on the strawberry side, but nowhere near as dark as it looks.  My favorite blocks are the ones with the two tulip prints.  This placement works, but I may move some things around, too.  You’ll just have to stay tuned.

I’m using the Disappearing Four Patch technique (D4P), which I think is a lot prettier than the 9 patch.  I’m sure there are lots of tutorials, but I learned it from Mama Vesuvius when she was collecting blocks for Hurricane Sandy quilts.  Scroll down a little on that page, the tutorial is there.  These are the 12 1/2″ blocks she is showing.



I’m linking up with WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced.

  1. How beautiful and I love the pattern you did! What technique did you use for the disappearing nine patch? Is there a specific tutorial for this pattern? I love it!

  2. I know what you mean about the photographing – it happens to me way too often. Love the fabric and the design you’ve come up with. I do look forward to seeing more.
