New Block Party Pattern - Patchwork Tulip!

Just in time for spring we have a new flower block for the Machine Quilting Block Party! This month we're going to learn how to piece and machine quilt this beautiful Patchwork Tulip block:

I love the piecing in this block and the unique flower shape that's created from easy Half Square Triangles. There are a lot of little pieces with this block so be careful as you cut your fabrics and keep everything organized with sticky notes so you don't get confused.

The video guiding you through piecing this block will be published next Monday, March 6th so you'll get a helping hand piecing this block from me!

We're also exploring many beautiful free motion quilting designs this month. I quilted big bold feathers in the tulip flower, then Swirling Water in the background and Pebbling in the vase.

I've also experimented again with ruler foot quilting with straight lines in the vase above the Pebbling. I love the texture this added to the block and I can't wait to see your versions of this Patchwork Tulip block this month!

Remember it's never too late to join in the fun of the Machine Quilting Block Party. Click Here to find all the block patterns published so far and learn more about this fun block of the month project!

Let's go quilt,
