Blue Delft Tulip Quilt Class
June 22, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm
The definition of Delft is English or Dutch tin-glazed earthenware, typically decorated by hand in blue on a white background. To many quilters, blue is such a calming color and is typical of the Delft patterns from the Netherlands. While there are many beautiful designs done in Delft work, tulips are a popular theme and so we will attempt to usher spring in a little early by creating a gorgeous applique quilt that features 12 lovely tulips blocks. All of the blocks finish to 12 inches and the quilt size is 62″ x 76″. We will be meeting three sessions to cover the techniques needed to render this beautiful quilt!
