New Block of the Month for 2010 -- Tulip Tiles

I am so excited!!  I can finally share my new free Block of the Month with you.  It is called Tulip Tiles and combines both piecing and applique.  It draws on the wonderful blue and white of delft and dutch tiles, with the added color of bright pink tulips to usher in the spring. This quilt would look wonderful in batiks, marbles, or bright prints.  I have done it in mostly blues and whites, but you may want to choose other colors for your spring time tulip tiles.

This block will be available for 1 month.  When I post the link to Block 2 on Feb 20, 2010, I will remove the link to this block.  It will then be available for sale on my web site.  You will be able to purchase the entire pattern once it is completed. 

Click here to purchase the pdf for Block 1.  The cost is $2.00 for download or $2.75 for mail.

The applique placement guide pdf is available with the purchase of Block 1.

The supply list pdf is available for free here.  Supply List

If you want to see a picture of the quilt you can see it here.  This way those who want it to be a suprise can just not look!!!   Yea right!  You know you are gonna look.  hehehe

Oh. . . . And the winner is. . . . .

And now off to celebrate my birthday!  :-)


  1. Hallo Reeze,
    der erste Block von deinem neuen BOM ist sehr schön.Da ich ein Applie Fan bin, werde ich mir mal Stoff besorgen und ihn mitnähen.
    Liebe Grüße Käte

  2. I am most excited about Tulip Tiles and wish to thank you so much for sharing it with the world...especially mine! I would love to see the whole quilt so that I can plan ahead better if that makes sense. Thanks so much!!!

  3. Good Morning Reeze, I also would like to say thank you for the new BOM and am in agreement with Mary Jo in preference to seeing the whole design up front. I did look back on your past posts to get an idea of what I have been missing since the holidays ;) BTW, I hope your birthday was wonderfully joyful!

  4. Happy Birthday. I would also like to see the finished quilt so I can plan ahead. Thanks for the great bom's you share with us.

  5. I'm another one that would love to see the whole quilt ahead of time. This one sure looks like it's going to be a beauty. Thank you so much for sharing your talent!

  6. Happy, happy birthday, Reeze!! I wish you a wonderful day, and many more years to come. God bless!!
    I want to be surprised, please.

  7. Hope you had a very happy birthday. I love the new BOM. It's a windy grey day here in New York and your tulips are a reminder that spring will be here before we know it. I would love to see a sneak peek of the entire quilt, but I'm content to see it revealed one lovely block after the other. Thank you for sharing your time and talent with all of us.

  8. I would love to have the Floral Applique Border Templates to finish my Midnight Posey Quilt.

  9. I'm, thrilled with the BOM. I am unable to open the link for the complete supply list - could you help me? Also, I would like to see a photo of the completed quilted. I'm not into mystery quilts. Thank you for helping!

  10. I also would love to see the whole quilt. I was unable to open the file for the materials. It said that it had been removed. The pattern looks like it will be lovely. Thank you.

  11. Happy Birthday! The first block is lovely! I too would like to see the whole quilt so as to plan the colors etc. Was unable to open the file for the supply list---it stated it had been removed.

    How do we get reminders that a new block has been posted?

    Thank you!

  12. Good morning from Adelaide. (Aust) I can't seem to open to requirements link. Love the look of the first block!

  13. Wow, love this block, I'm shure all the quilt will be wonderful!
    If it's not a problem I'd like to have a pic of the finished top... I admit, I don't love surprises... I'm the kind of person who read the end of books :p
    thank you!

  14. I would love to see the whole quilt! I am never good at waiting. I also love tulips. Thank youso much for sharing! Andrea in Fort Lewis, Washington
