I started my blog about a year ago and one of the very first blog posts was for this fun tulip quilt block. I made two little table runners for my oldest girls’ teachers as an end of the year gift. One of their teachers last year had an immaculate garden at her home and I loved the thought of giving her some flowers for the inside of her home that she could keep out year round. I gave away both of the tulip table runners that I made last year, so I’m hoping that I’ll be able to sew up some more darling tulips this Spring. 🙂
The tulip quilt block was one of the first patterns I designed using EQ7 (I’ve since upgraded to EQ8) and I love looking back on the simple, yet effective graphics I created along with the step-by-step photo tutorial for the quilt block (HERE). It reminds me that anyone with a desire to create and share block tutorials can do it! I had just started using EQ7 and was so thrilled and excited with how easy it was to create digital images of the tulip blocks.
You can head over to the blog post from last year HERE to get the full tulip quilt block tutorial. The tulip quilt blocks finish at 6″ x 12.5″ in size and with simple 2.5″ strips of sashing, they make cute table runners.
In the year since I posted the tutorial, I’ve seen several tulip table runners, but also single tulips as mini quilts or tulips used as filler blocks for larger projects. I love to see your creativity in using my tutorials and patterns, so please continue to share your photos with me!

Happy Spring and happy sewing!
