In my newsletter I asked what quilt people wanted to see mocked up in Tulip Tango and RING AROUND THE POSIES was a clear winner!! I will be showing more quilt mockups in this fabric line but here is RING AROUND THE POSIES to explore with the Tulip Tango collection.
Lets start with the Dotty Thatched Cream background and Love Butterflies in the corners (in Tulip color). Classic reds on cream looks crisp and bright. When I use the Dotty Thatched background in Washed Linen with Cream corners it has a soft and romantic look. I would definitely want to snuggle up under this one!
This is the same Dotty Thatched Washed Linen with more of the Grays from the collection. I've used Love Butterfly in Shadow for the corners. I've also used more gray strips for leaves and flowers with the pinks still prominent for the flowers. One thing to point out here is that I've used a different fabric for the interiors of the flowers to give them a little more pop. This is Dotty Thatched in Cream and if you use a different fabric inside the flowers like this, you need a 1/4 yard of fabric for those.
Here I've used the lighter interiors again but sticking to more reds in the collection. The background is Dotty Thatched 118 in Cranberry with corners in Dotty 202 Tulip.
A little darker background is regular Thatched Burgundy 60. I am using the background color inside the flowers too and the main Tulip print 48710-19 in Cranberry for quilt corners.
One last one...dramatic night time garden with Thatched Soft Black 152 as the background color and Dotty Thatched 48715-117 in Shadow for quilt corners. Those colors glow against the Soft Black background! I love using the Swirling Leaves print as my bindings because it gives it a free flowing striped look.
Are you ready to make RING AROUND THE POSIES in Tulip Tango? I am trying to decide between the two washed linen versions.
If you are looking for the pattern, please check your local quilt shop to see if they have it. You can also find it at my shop at ROBIN PICKENS INC.
More mock ups to come...how about MOD FLOWER BOX next?

Absolutely gorgeous! Thank you for the time you spend to create and share these mock-ups. It’s amazing the different look and feel you get just changing out the fabrics. Tulips have always been my favorite flower and I remember when you asked us all for suggestions for upcoming lines and of course I said tulips! So I was super excited to see this line announced! It’s beautiful! And I’m looking forward to seeing your other quilt patterns mocked up with it!

I am having a problem. In the measurements for background cutting on ring around the posies the written directions says to cut (6) 6 1/2 x 2 1/2 strips. The diagram shows to cut (4) 6 1/2 x 2 1/2 strips. Which is it?
