Creative Quilters, I’d like to introduce you to Spring Tulips, the April pattern update to our year-long color-of-the-month series.
I’m celebrating spring’s arrival with a picnic on the new Spring Tulips table runner. I’m so excited to see spring’s explosion of color after such a harsh winter that was spare in its color landscape. My favorite part of spring is the warmer weather and stunning colors that absolutely beckon me to to the outdoors. That’s where I notice the green everywhere in in nature: in grass, flowers, shrubs, and perennials and annuals that beg to be planted.

If you can’t get to the quilt shop to select your own fabrics, no worries. I’m offering a Spring Tulips kit as well. It’s best to choose your own fabrics for your color palettes, but we all have those times when life gets too busy and we just can’t get to it. I’d rather you be able to do the lesson with a kit than not at all.

Learn by Doing
April’s featured color is green, nature’s neutral, and one of the most abundant colors in the quilt shops.
Spring Tulips’ color palette of green, blue-green, and blue, uses similar colors that are next to each other on the color wheel, meaning they blend well. Because they are so similar, you use value and intensity to create contrast in the tulip designs.
Learn New Techniques
April’s Spring Tulips pattern uses my original Hawaiian Tulips applique design, and you’ll learn how to cut the design from paper before you touch your fabrics. I also show you how to play with greens in your color journal to achieve just the right balance of color harmony (look for an upcoming color journal article in Quilter’s Newsletter).
Forget quilt as desired! I’ve included quilting designs, the very ones I used in my own project, that make Spring Tulips really shine. Color-of-the-Month subscribers also get exclusive access to several new videos on how to do freemotion quilting. It’s a terrific bonus: learn about color and machine quilting techniques!
