While on holiday in America earlier this year, I bought the tulip fabric, as the friends we visited live in an area where tulips are grown and the last couple of times we have been to see them the Tulip Festival has been on, so I wanted some fabric to remind me of it. I also saw a quilt in a quilt shop that I really liked, so bought green and black fabric to go with it. The only fabric I did not have was another patterned fabric. I went to the Festival of Quilts at the NEC on Sunday and looked for a suitable fabric. I finally found the apple fabric.
OK you are saying what have apples got to do with tulips. Our friends live in Washington State, where Washington Red Apples come from, and there is an apple farm just down the road from their house. So you see there is a connection.
Now I just have to work out how to make the quilt block in the quilt that I saw in America!
