Blue Tulips on Pink Skies was machine quilted in a traditional style with feathers, stipple quilting, and curvy lines. Sue Nickels' quilting designs were inspired by Amish Bars quilts. Cotton fabric, thread, and cotton-blend batting were used to create this lovely quilt, which also appears on the cover of her book, Machine Quilting: A Primer of Techniques.
