Positively String Tulips

Positive thinking is what we've needed this year. And the need has become greater with every day. I reset some of the electric socket string blocks with a medallion of tulips. It's a triple scoop ice cream cone - strings, medallion, and tulips. So those circles must be the cherries on top.

Four crossed tulips center the medallion with string blocks forming Xs as a border

Audrey's many beautiful tulip quilts inspired me to create one of my own. Now that the ice is broken, I have ideas for several more. They are enormously fun. 

Deliberately angled strings made a wild top, named by QuiltDivaJulie, but it seemed like one was enough. However, there were almost two more piles of these blocks. So, like kawandi, I started at the outside and worked my way in. One nice thing about applique is that it's easily scalable. Just enlarge or shrink the design to fit the needed space.  More details on my blog.

Keep focusing on positive thought and actions. And VOTE. Our lives depend on it.

I love this quilt! Without the tulip centre the string blocks were all jostling to be the main attraction. Now they are working together in supporting roles. Every actor needs supporting players.

Thanks for the shout out Ann! I do so love a good Tulip quilt. In fact, your masterpiece is inspiring me to think about another. I'm easily influenced by a good quilt.:)

Oh, what a fabulous quilt. Marly's metaphor explains it perfectly.

Drat, I left you a comment on that gorgeous tulip piece in your last post but the computer ate it. I had asked was there a pattern for the tulip. I have a thing about tulips, LOL. Meanwhile, these quilts are extraordinary pieces all. Love the colours.
