Wendy's Tulips & Roses Quilt Part 1

TRQuilt16

My first quilt of the year is this beautiful Tulips & Roses quilt by Darlene Jewell-Walhood for Connecting Threads.  The quilt kit arrived and I'm excited to start making it for my dear friend, Wendy.  This quilt is for her and will be beautiful when complete!  If you would like to make this quilt along with me, simply go to Connecting Threads (the link is in my blog post) and order the kit, the backing fabric, and the supplies you need to complete the entire quilt, sewing along with me!  If you have any questions, I'm happy to help.
