It’s rare to find a square pattern that has both an attractive layout in the flat and an equally attractive 3D motif or applique. Usually, either one or the other is the sole focus of the piece.
Tip Toe Through the Tulips is a pattern that marries the two seamlessly and produces a square with a regular, beautiful surface with a 3D applique flower with a realistic, variegated surface. It’s a fun and beautiful way to liven up your blankets, afghans, and pillowcases. A link to free patterns is included under the photos.
