May Day tulip mini quilts with free motion applique


After making the jar of tulips mini quilt for the April Aurifil Artisan challenge, it made me remember that May Day was coming up! Do you give flowers to your friends and neighbors on May Day? It's a tradition I was introduced to as a young girl, and I decided to make some quilty flowers for my friends this year!

Tulips in a jar mini quilt using Island Batik fabric and Aurifil thread


This month's Aurifil Artisan challenge was to feature your favorite Aurifil thread weight! I didn't even have to think about it! I absolutely love the 50wt!! I use it for piecing, machine applique, free-motion quilting (on both my domestic and longarm!), stitching on binding...

It took a bit longer to think about what I wanted to make. More sunshine is happening these days, and I've really been admiring the tulips blooming around our neighborhood. That was just the inspiration I needed to make a mini quilt!
