Cross-Stitched Tulips Quilt Top

These pretty vintage tulip quilt blocks are from Barbara at Oodles and Oodles, who always finds the best stuff. They were stamped on a heavier type muslin and stitched with green and a variety of pink colored floss. I knew they would look good with a couple of vintage chintz fabrics I already owned — a solid green, and a wonderful tulip stripe. The quilt is 56″ x 56″ and made as a throw, but I think it would also make a nice table topper. It will be hand quilted, but I haven’t decided on a pattern.

This is another Christmas gift — part of Allie’s Christmas Through the Year Club, which has really inspired me to get these presents done a little earlier this year.
