Hello All! It’s the middle of Spring break which means no school for my kiddos. Yesterday we all decided to head North to La Conner, Washington in Skagit County to see the tulip fields. If you recall, my 2nd collection was named La Conner, inspired by this charming little town.
It was a very wet, Spring day but we went anyway. The rain won’t stop us Seattlites from seeing the tulip fields 😉 plus the rain meant no crowds of people. Win-win!
Anyway, I managed to make my Tiny Tulips quilt with a few late night quilt sessions before heading there. I wanted to share some photos with you all. Also, my son Ethan was such a rock star holding my quilt for me in the pouring rain (see first photo)! He’s the best.
If you love this Tiny Tulips pattern, you can download it HERE. It comes together quickly!
The fabrics I used are from my latest collection for Lecien Fabrics called Loyal Heights, available in stores now! If you can’t find it at your local quilt shop, try Googling it. I know some small businesses online have ordered it, and Fat Quarter Shop has it as well.
Find my latest collection, Loyal Heights, HERE. Similar to my previous collections, Loyal Heights sparkles with gold metallic flecks in the prints!
Anyway, rain or shine it’s always beautiful out here in La Conner. I wanted to share some pics with you all…
Here we are! 🙂
Without the rain, there would be no flowers! The flowers were very happy!
I’m sharing a few more “Spring” photos from my instagram.
If you follow me @QuiltingintheRain on IG, sorry for the repeat. If you don’t yet follow me there, I suggest you do as I post photos daily there.
This is my plate rack in my dining room all decorated for Spring. I love switching out the plates depending on the season.
Also, this towel rack is perfect to display my smaller quilts. These quilts measure about 50″ x 50″ for the biggest. I found this towel rack at my local Hobby Lobby.
Also, I’ve been doing english paper piecing (EPP) one car ride at a time. I managed to make this one yesterday during our ride up to La Conner (notice the tulip fields in the background). 🙂
The fabrics used in this EPP star are from my 3rd collection for Lecien Fabrics called Woodland Rose which came out last Spring. You can purchase some at Shabby Fabrics , as well as HERE, HERE and HERE (I just googled it) 🙂 Hurry and grab some before its all gone, as it did come out last Spring.
Oh, and for some business updates:
1. My 5th collection for Lecien Fabrics is almost wrapped up and i’ll be sharing it this Fall. My 5th collection was inspired by my recent visit to Victoria, BC. And yes, I will be at Fall quilt market 2019.
2. You can expect a Christmas collection from me next year. 🙂
3. I’m working on some new notions (my last notion were my Woodland Rose scissors which you can find HERE).
4. I have a blog tour coming up in mid-May using fabrics from my 4th collection, Loyal Heights.
…i think that’s everything, though i’m sure I missed something.
To keep current with what i’m up to, please follow me on instagram @QuiltingintheRain =)
Thank you everyone – until next time, I’ll leave you with a couple more tulip photos.
The flowers are beautiful and your family picture adorable!
Thank you 🙂
Beautiful tulip pictures – and love the one with you and your boys! Very cute tulip pattern – I need to make one for my foyer :)! Yes, rain makes the flowers grow – they are awesome!
So pretty! I’m definitely making this Tulip quilt, they are my favorite flower. Bravo too you and family for braving the rains to visit such a beautiful spot!
I loved reading this post — it brought back some sweet memories. My husband and I lived in Seattle for almost 6 years while he did grad school at UW. We went to Skaggit Valley one Spring during the tulip festival and it was so amazing to see the huge fields in bloom
You are so welcome! I’m always happy to share pics of the tulip fields – they’re amazing rain or shine! 🙂
Thanks for the lovely tour of the tulips and your projects. Your posts are always a pictorial treat. The tulip wall quilt is darling, just in time for spring. Nice to see you’re doing (and hopefully enjoying) EPP… I find it so relaxing and beautiful and look forward to seeing what you do with your completed stars. Thank you for sharing your excursion with your beautiful little boys 🙂
Thank you so much for the kind message! 🙂
