Tiny Terrific Tulips Mini Quilt
The pattern will show you the methods I use for sewing three different sized tiny tulip blocks, a small butterfly block and includes instructions for finishing your mini quilt with a two fabric flange binding. Fabric amounts needed are given, along with block layout. The written instructions include step by step diagrams for piecing and photos for the steps in finishing your mini quilt.
The pattern is sewn using traditional piecing methods using a sewing machine. No templates or specialty rulers are needed to sew this quilt.
The pattern is in English and includes text with colour assembly diagrams and colour photos. It is 24 pages long - including a photo cover and end page photos of design options. PLUS a bonus colouring sheet to help with planning out your fabric choices. This pattern can be downloaded for printing, immediately after purchasing.
