Waiting for borders

I'm a little late in posting a photo of my String Tulip quilt,
 you can see that there are no String Tulips here, I decided to go with
a favourite fabric of mine and fussy cut and collage, the result of all the fussy cutting
resulted in tendonitis! After a break of a few days things
have eased up so it's back to the machine a little at a time.

 Two borders will be sewn on over the next day or so and then I can say
that is a finished top, even though I may be lagging behind.

Glorious flowers you’ve cut although I’m sorry they caused tendinitis. What a champ you have been to play along with this QAL.

I love how you added those center medallion flowers--so pretty on that purple fabric. Nice work hugs, Julierose

A lovely bouquet in the centre, what a clever idea, apart from the tendonitis, of course. And, you are not lagging behind, not behind me anyway; I have still to start on the flowers.

What an absolutely delightful quilt top. The colors enhance each other and the flower center. . . genius. Sorry about the tendonitis, that makes doing what you love so difficult. I had a bout of carpal tunnel in February and it was bad enough I wondered if I would have to stop quilting. But, with time and care monitoring (like not trying to hand quilt all day) it has diminished. Again, this is a stunning quilt top. Love it!

Spectacular, Maureen! I do hope the tendonitis resolves soon (it hurts, I know, I have issues with it, too).

Thanks to you all for your kind and supportive comments! I was hitting the wall deciding on the tulips and in the end decided I had to get moving! I had already picked out the background square and rummaging through my quarter yard box I came across the Phillip Jacobs Poppy Garden fabric which lent it itself perfectly to collage.

This turned out so pretty! I just love how vibrant the colors are and your strings have wonderful impact. Yay for getting through the centerpiece and doing your thing! It all looks so good!:)

Thank you Audrey - now in the process of adding borders.
