"This tulip design helps indicate how the quilt would lay on a bed. All tulip blocks face the center.
Tulips in fat bowls have been documented in at least 3 other quilts in Rockingham County, Va.
This block resembles Valley fractur designs." ....Neva Hart
The Red Tulip block is very similar to the Yellow Tulip block we shared back in August. The one difference is the "bowl" construction of the red and yellow flower heads. (see yellow tulip below)
Here is a close up of Esther's Red tulip block for you to see the fabrics she used.
I also found it interesting to see that she quilted on top of her applique work.
Here is the condensed version of the order in which I assembled this block:
Esther must have been fond of Tulips - she included 3 Tulip blocks in her quilt.
I really enjoyed stitching up this block, I hope that you do too.
