This is a fun, springtime quilt of pinks and browns, with an accent of yellow rickrack along the tops of the tulips. “Tammy and I love rickrack and we use it as often as we can,” says Avis, who designed this quilt. “It adds texture and an element of surprise.” This piece uses all cotton fabrics, and the tulips are fused machine appliqué. When Avis designed this piece on graph paper, she imagined an all brown sashing. That changed once she began working in cloth. “I thought there was too much dark, and that little strip of pink lightened it up,” she says. “When something doesn’t work out just as you’d imagined, you have to improvise.”
