The Tulip Quilting Block 2

Here is another cute and easy tulip quilt block.

You can see the blocks in the grids of the picture. This block is a 9 patch, further divided into 36 smaller grids or sections.

There are 3 half square triangles in this block. They each take up 4 of the smaller grids. The rest of the block can be made in squares and rectangles

Notice the grids that are further divided into 4 patches. In the upper right section the green square represents the bud on the flower.

The grid lines is how you calculate the size of each section of this block. Using Simple Measurements, if you plan each small grid to finish at 2 inches you cut the small squares 2 1/2 inches raw. Your half square triangles will finish at 4 inches. The center square will be cut at 4 1/2 inches raw.

Refer to the instructional link if needed for the different units.

Quilters love their flowers, whether they are pieced or printed on the fabric. Have some fun with this one.
