Tulip applique


The design for the tulips was taken from multiple sources. The leaves were from a group of tulip bulbs that my husband brought home in the winter. The flower was from some tulips that were growing in England. I used yellow fabric and added the color with fabric pastels. I used the starch-press-glue method to make the unit with the leaves and flower, and then appliqued all of it to the background.
The tulip appears in the lower left corner of the quilt. You can see a bit of the ground that runs across the bottom, and the tree that runs up the left side.
