Tulip Chains Pieced Except Outer Border

Here it Tulip Chains quilt top only lacks the outermost cream border. This measures roughly 48" wide by 72" tall now. I am making it for a nap time quilt for myself. I have a large floral print I love with a red background that I have no other reds to match. I think I'll use it for the back of this quilt if I have enough. That way I'll get to see it as much as I want, and it won't be chopped up into small pieces! Win/win situation if you ask me.

For the longest time I cut all my scraps into 2" squares. This quilt went together so quickly because of them. I was making 4-patches with them with 2 creams and 2 colors. A lot of them are used up. I added to them to make the 9-patches for the center of the quilt and used a lot more as the outer border. I am down to one small stack of maybe 15 four-patches from the original huge pile. That's why this went together so quickly.

Good night!!
