How to Piece a Patchwork Tulip Quilt Block

Are you ready to piece the next block for the Machine Quilting Block Party? This month is all about patchwork as we stitch small shapes together to create this cute Patchwork Tulip quilt block:

Just like our Blooming Nine Patch quilt block, there are a lot of little pieces in this block! Make sure to cut carefully and label your pieces so you don't get confused. It also helps to piece the block together in units from the vase to the stem to the flower. See what I mean in this new piecing video:

Did your block finish the right size? You can find the finished size on page 7 of the pattern. Even if it didn't come out exactly this size, that's okay! We're going to trim the blocks down before piecing them together with our Quilt As You Go technique so it's no big deal if your block doesn't measure exactly the right size.

Before we can connect the first three blocks together, we need to quilt it. Next Monday I'll share a new video on how to quilt this block using a variety of beautiful designs you can quilt with regular free motion quilting and ruler foot quilting!

Let's go quilt,
