Notes:

  • Finished Size: 39" x 39"
  • All seam allowances are 1/4" unless noted.
  • Cutting your binding pieces on the bias (diagonal) grain adds enough stretch to go around the curved edges with ease.

Piecing the Quilt:

  1. Construct Tulip Melons. Sew a Small End piece to a Center piece. Press. Alignment tip: because of the angles of these pieces, the ends will overlap and pieces should match up at 1/4" seam line. See Diagram 1.
  2. Add a Large End piece to the other straight side of each of the Tulip segments. Press. See Diagram 2.
  3. Sew a Curved End piece to the top of each Tulip. Alignment tip: fold the Tulip Center and the Curved End pieces in half to find the center of each curve. Finger press each piece at this point and pin together, matching the centers. Repeat for all 24 Tulip Melons. See Diagram 3.
  4. Arrange Melons and background pieces, alternating direction of Tulip Melon, using the quilt photo as a reference.
  5. Sew a Melon piece to a background piece. Alignment tip: fold pieces in half and finger press the centers. Pin centers together. Ends of background piece should extend 1/4" beyond the side points of full Melon piece. See Diagram 4.
  6. Sew Melons to background pieces (as shown in Diagram 5), to form curved rows.
  7. Sew rows together. To help with these long curved seams, place pins to matching seams and finger-pressed centers.

Finishing:

  1. Layer the backing, batting and quilt top. Quilt by hand or machine, as desired.
  2. Trim backing and batting even with top of quilt, following curved edge.
  3. Sew binding strips together to form one long continuous strip. Fold wrong sides together lengthwise and press.
  4. Sew the binding to the right side of the quilt, matching raw edges of the binding to the quilt edge. Follow the curves, clipping and pivoting at corners and being careful not to stretch the binding as you sew. Fold binding over the edge of the quilt and stitch in place by hand, mitering the corners.
