fall blogger quilt festival: sixty tulips

Amy's Creative Side is hosting her blogger fall quilt festival and I encourage you to visit others in her post.

Sixty Tulips was made for my parents' sixtieth wedding anniversary this summer. The quilt was made from batik scraps for the tulips and a few longer lengths for the background, sashing, and setting pieces. Beautifully quilted by Sue DiVarco.
Our gathering and celebration memories of this summer are especially precious as my father died in a farming accident six weeks later.

Hi Lynn,
I am a Dutch quilter and found your blog Klein Meisje through a third party. It is great to read about an American with a Dutch background and to see your quilts!

This is a beautiful quilt! Tulips are my favorite flower, and they are lovely here! I love how you made 60 to honor the 60th anniversary. So sorry to hear of your dad's passing.
