Antique Tulip Applique Quilt
I was playing on my computer earlier this week and ran across this tulip applique quilt. It was bright, cheery and helps me dream about spring. I'm behind on quite a few things, so there is no time to make this quilt, but I decided I at least needed to draft it in Electric Quilt. Creating even a virtual quilt makes me happy!
Would you like to follow along with me while I draft the block this week? This will take the fear out of drafting applique blocks in EQ -- I promise!
I wasn't sure what size to make the blocks -- 12" blocks will make a finished quilt that is 42" x 51". A nice size for a lap quilt.

The layout for this quilt can be a bit tricky. I will cover drafting that using Electric Quilt next week.
Featured Pattern - Smiling Irish Eyes
Are you looking for a quilt to adorn your table or wall for St. Patrick's Day. My Smiling Irish Eyes quilt can be purchased at your local quilt shop or directly from my website.
These miniature quilts have an Irish theme – shamrocks, a Celtic quilt block and Irish chain blocks. Instructions provide for oversized units that are cut down with the use of the recommended rulers. This makes miniature quilts a breeze. The table topper finished 21" x 21" and the vertical wall quilt finished 8" x 20".

Elsa and Anna Quilt Update
The quilt is on my machine and is almost done. I'm loving using the snowflakes from the exchange. Pictures will be shared next week.
