Tiptoe Thru the Tulips and the Knappenberger Quilt

Here is the center of a medallion quilt that 4 of us are making. It is called Tiptoe thru the Tulips by Wendy at Legends and Lace and can be found here. (Wendy will be making the pattern available as she has had requests for it. I will let you know when it is ready! Thank you Wendy!)
This is my friend Jill's center. The colors will be bright and vibrant!
Here is my center, which I've deviated quite a bit from Wendy's pattern. I couldn't help myself.

Here is Wendy's quilt. The pattern is available NOW! Click HERE>
And I believe this is the quilt she used for her version. I've long admired this quilt and you can see how I've followed my own path. (I have since been told by Wendy that her quilt was on a quilt engagement calendar and is not the Knappenberger quilt)

Karen and Janet are doing it and you can see their beautiful centers at Karen's blog-

  3. What an exciting new project! It's so interesting to see 4 different interpretations of the same pattern. It will be very fun to watch these progress.

  6. I used a photo in a Quilt Engagement Calendar as the inspiration for this quilt. I made it pretty close to the original in colour and design. There was no maker's name so I can not help with that. Glad you all love it. Wendy Whellum (in Australia)

  14. Very nice beginning, I have liked Wendy's pink and brown quilt on her blog for a long time, might have to think about the block of the month she is going to offer.

  16. I love to see old quilts reinterpreted by quilters. Each is unique but they all reference to the original quilt. Very exciting and I'm looking forward to following your progress!

  17. Love your version, and look forward to seeing it (and others) complete.
    I wish I had the nerve to tackle this project ~

  21. I'm one key stroke from ordering that pattern. I love the browns and pinks of Wendy's version only because it's more my primitive style. Love the Knappenberger quilt too, I think Jan Patek had a girl gang quilt years ago that was based loosely on the Knappenberger quilt, think I would remember the name since I'm laying under it. Your version of the Christmas quilt is stunning, much more distinctive with your rebel blocks. n
