How to Quilt the Echoed Tulip Dance Border
You’ll love how easy it is to quilt the echoed tulip dance border! Before I quilted this design I started by adding a few registration lines in my border. This will help keep the tulips even across the space. The size of these spaces is up to you! I gave myself about 3 inches for each tulip. But you might want more or less space depending on the size of your border.
To quilt the echoed tulip dance border, we’ll start at the bottom of your border. Quilt a lower case “e” or a loop around the center of your marked space. Now quilt three tulip petals or leaves around that center loop. This brings you back to your center loop. Now echo back around your tulip petals. On your first and last petals add a curl for a little extra whimsy!
Continue echoing the tulip until you’re back at the center loop. Now you can travel to your next marked space to quilt another echoed tulip!
