Modern Tulip Quilt Block – Prize Winning Quilt Patterns

This Modern Tulip quilt pattern motif lends itself more effectively to forming a “showy” coverlet rather than a practical quilt to be used for covering.

This quilt pattern is a design that is quite easy to assemble, and simply by adding a lining, then finishing the edge with green bias binding, you will have completed a prize-winner!
