How to Piece a Triple Tulip Flower Quilt Block

It's hard to believe we're already halfway done with the Flower Festival quilt! This month we have another patchwork challenge as we piece this beautiful Triple Tulip flower quilt block:

There are a lot of little pieces with these three flower blocks which can feel overwhelming. Take your time cutting, label your pieces, and arrange the shapes on a table top near your machine so you don't get confused by how it goes together.

Another thing that really helps is piecing the flower block together in units: the vase, the stems, and the flowers. Learn how to piece each unit of this block in this new quilting tutorial:

How to connect quilted blocks
Because we have two full rows of the quilt complete, you can begin to think about connecting the blocks together into rows. This is a great step to take now so you'll have less to do in December when the last block pattern is published.

Starting in the Block #7 quilt pattern you will find instructions on connecting your blocks together using binding strips. The tip video on connecting the blocks is from last year's Sunshine Surprise quilt, but the steps are 100% the same.

Personally I'm connecting my blocks with the extra Sashing and Cornerstones pieces which increases the size of the quilt to 65 x 85 inches.

I'll be sharing an extra tip video later this month on connecting the rows together and matching the connecting binding strips. When pieced together carefully, your Flower Festival quilt will look like it was quilted in one big piece!

Speaking of quilting, next week you'll learn how to quilt this beautiful block with feathers, Pebbling, and more ruler foot quilting. Be looking forward to this new quilting tutorial on Monday June 10th.

Let's go quilt,
