Here's a puzzle for you to consider. I like Ann's tulips a lot. I like to applique much less (actually I like how it looks, just don't want to do it). So I have started making these little string blocks for a tulip quilt, knowing from the off that I want to applique as much as I want toothache.
I have been searching the web for inspiration but so far nothing hits the spot.
I could EPP, but that is not a thought that fills me with joy and lately I don't much want to do anything that isn't adding joy to my life.I could piece, but the only examples I have seen are very block-y and tulips are such a lovely, elegant flower I would prefer to come up with something more curvy. I love the simplicity of Audrey's latest tulips, but of course those are appliqued.
What to do? I have no answers as yet, but did come across this interesting post on one of Barbara Brackman's blogs that gives me pause for thought.
Any bright ideas?
