I'm a pretty bad procrastinator, so  since market is just freshly over and I have two free patterns to go with  Pam Kitty Garden, I decided not to wait so long to get started on the instructions.  Tulip Garden is a quilt that I'd been working on for a while, long before Holly and I decided that this collection would be garden inspired.

I decided to whip out a test block for the applique one day and I had the shapes cut out and fused in no time. Except of course I had forgotten my shapes were cut for the original smaller size block I'd planned. So it worked out well that I decided to check it out first.  Note to self: mark your photoshop files with block size information.

The tulips were significantly bigger... too bad my leaves were fused already.  Darn it. But I'm glad I got it all worked out in advance.  Yesterday I cut out everything I needed to make myself a little kit to stitch up.  I'm sure you'll see this tulip shape again, I really love it. 
block fixing!
Now after cutting all those tulip shapes, I'm wishing I had a die for cutting, tulips in 2 or 3 sizes plus some leaves would be awesome. I have a lot more ideas for it.
Ok people, hope you're having a good week. In case I don't get back here tomorrow, have a great weekend! xo

Is it odd that your tulips remind me of kittens' heads? They're cute as pie!
