Tulip Quilt 1: Adult

Author: Sarah Clowe, Director of Art Programs

Thank you for submitting your artwork for our virtual celebration of the Tulip Festival!

The tulip artwork submitted to us by our wonderful community has been digitally "stitched" together into Tulip Quilts.  We had many entries from both adult and youth artists.  The first quilt reveal is compiled of the adult and older youth artworks. Stay tuned tomorrow (May 10) for the youth tulip quilt!

Is your artwork in the quilt?  Thank you! If you'd like to download a copy for yourself here is a PDF link: Adult Tulip Quilt

Quilts in the Collection

I've used quilts from the museum's collection as both inspiration and as a template for our own Tulip Quilts.  The c. 1890 Floral Embroidered Crazy Quilt was where I had the idea to put together our own crazy quilt of tulip blooms.  I've edited over the original embroidered flowers with the tulip artwork submitted to create our modern version.
