My version of TULIPS IN BLOOM by Vicki from The Pickledish Patch

I just love this dish!!!



I recently won this pattern and 2 others over at "The Pickledish Patch"



I made two but added my own touch.



The disappointing thing about these wall hangings is that the green in the photo are not what they are in person....looks odd in the photo.

Then....I have no backing fabric...could use a sheet? That is one bad thing about not having a stash....and it is tooooooooooooo stinking cold to get out. Although, my car is in the shop and will have to go and pick it up later...do I want to...no way...will I...boss man says definietly!!!



ch..ch..ch..ch..ch..ch..ch.....that is my teeth chattering... heat was set on 60.....ch..ch..ch...

I love your version of this quilt.

Diane H said...

Looks great, Barb! Love you fabric choices - can't wait to get started on mine.

The tops are great! What is the blue fabric? I really like it!

Judy said...

I have a canister set and a large bowl with the exact pattern on them. I saw your piece in the corner of one of the pics you posted and was going to comment on it but never did. Happy quilting!

I too love that dish. AND your great blocks.

JustCindy said...

I love that dish too! What a cute pattern. Since your husband is having you go pick up the car in these frigid temperatures, I think you should reward yourself with a stop at the LQS. ;)

Yvette said...

Girl, I don't know how you are doing that in those temperatures. I am in Southern California and we are freezing and it is 60 outside. LOL!!! I have my heater set to 72 and wear a sweater. I think our blood is too thin for anything below 75.

Yvette said...

OH! I forgot to mention how nice your wall hangings are. I think a sheet would work fine.

Sarcastic Quilter said...

uh, 60 is too cold a temp to keep your thermostat in this weather! I can see 68 but not much lower in this cold. Our house has HORRIBLE insulation and so we have to set the temp at 70-72 depending. Our bill is way too high for our little space but that's the trade off for a cheap rental, I suppose.

I like your wall hanging. Looks good. I think I'm on my way to JoAnn's soon since I need a GO Dye. 2.5" strip. I think it's in the store and on sale right now. I think tomorrow if work allows.

Barbara, I have been so cold too. And I am in FLORIDA!! Your wall hanging look great! I think for a wall hanging a sheet would work fine.

The Quilting Pirate said...

60?? I would have mine up to 74 personally :)

I love your version of the tulips, looks warm and springy!!!

Peaceful Piecer said...

I use vintage sheets for backs often. Love your spring tulips.

Terry said...

Your wall hangings look great! Stay warm! :0)

Scrappy quilter said...

Very nice, love it. We are at -16C right now, kinda cold. Oh forgot, you could use a sheet for backing. Hugs

60? Gees, heat is well worth paying for! I love the tulips.

Stay warm,

PS It's freezing in not so sunny Texas too. brrr

Joanna said...

I like both of your versions. It's a neat pattern.

Melissa said...

60? No wonder your teeth are chattering!! 60 is for sleeping. 68 is for sewing!!

Deanna said...

I hate it when my colors don't work, which is often. Very annoying. You have my sympathy, but we must post pictures, I suppose. Quilting is so visual.

Thanks for stopping by. I edited my post to add that these particular sea turtles are on the endangered species list and, if I remember right, human touch can kill them. I may have the last part wrong but I think that's what he said. How's everything going anyway? I'm so happy to hear from you again.

So, did you go out?

Both your quilts look great.

Fiesta said...

It looks great Barb.

Joanne Lendaro said...

they look great!! Love the little dish, and I'm with everyone else, you have got to bump the heat up to 68 during the day.

Nanci said...

Hi Barb: 70-72 degrees, and I live in Canada where cold is our business!
I know the green is probably bright in person, it happens with the photos downloaded at times.
Your blog looks different to me today, parts of the sidebars were right over the writng page.
Blogger is wierd these days...or is it me?
