Unlike other blocks in Heartland Heritage, the tulip block is perfect for strip piecing. When using this technique in sewing it is important to maintain consistant seam allowance. Need help? Here are my tips for achieving accurate 1/4″ seam allowance.

The strip piecing technique really makes quick work of the top section of the tulip block. After a few quick slices at the mat, you are all set to join the rest of the block together.

Joining the top unit together can be a challenge. I suggest that you use the natural stretch from the bias to line the pieces up. You can see from the next image that I did not pin my pieces together. Instead, I applied a small amount of resistance to the top layer. This helped keep everything aligned.

Using that natural stretch will set you up for success with your block. I can’t wait to see what colors you stitched yours in.
