Variations on Variations on a Bouquet of Tulips

Neck deep in grow-your-handmade-business books with numbers and notebooks and workbooks spread across the work table in front of me, I decided to adjourn for some sewing. With two quilts left to send out from the ones I sold at my show, I whipped up Buckwheat 2.0 also known as Variations on Variations on a Bouquet of Tulips. It's slated to be sent out to my dear friend Susie in PA tomorrow morning, and it is nearly identical to its brother Variations on a Bouquet of Tulips. Based off of the Farmer's Wife Quilt block Buckwheat, I modified my original color choices with some light grey Michael Miller solids on the top and bottom. I like it. And I spent the afternoon catching up on the last episodes of Elementary while quilting and binding it. Lovely.

    1. Thanks! I had a lot of fun figuring out how to quilt the collection. It's 2' x 2.' I can't decide if I'm in love with that size, but it's what I've been working in since the beginning of the year.

  3. I like it - very similar, but the gray on the outside adds a different subtle vibration in the low volume! (Had to look to your senior show page to see the subtle differences)

  4. Love everything about this :) Coral and navy are never a bad pair! Congrats! P.S. What is that other minty goodness of a quilt you have going there?

    1. That one there is a quilt I sewed about a year ago based off of the Broken Dishes block from the FWQ. I embarrassingly never actually posted a full photo of the finished quilt, even though I took one, so I will go do that tomorrow haha.

    1. Thank you, Alexis! It's great when you finally hit subtle and striking, instead of subtle and dull haha.
