the world of tula pink

If you're anything like us, you'll already love Tula Pink's new fabric range, Linework! Along with this month's LP&Q, you'll find Tula's original pattern for the Opening Night quilt that shows off the collection perfectly… isn't it amazing? The quilt comprises of just one block design, but by mixing it up with different prints and rainbow colours it looks way more complicated than it really is! Our favourite part? The gorgeous monochrome two-tone background, which really makes the colours pop. Oh, and that incredible quilting. And the Tula branded backing fabric… it's too hard to choose! Plus, inside you'll find in-depth interviews with the designer herself, a gallery of her previous collections and designs by both Kelly Bowser (of @kelbysews Instagram fame) and UK modern quilting royalty Lynne Goldsworthy. Enjoy! Tula Troops…

I added the flat multi-colour dots as abstract fruit in the tree and as a reference to the…

time travel with tula

Keeping our fabric stash fresh and functional means investing considerable time and money, so we quilters take it very seriously! Having spent over 10 years collaborating with FreeSpirit Fabrics, Tula has built an impressive archive of designs. When her True Colors collection was launched, it added even more versatility to her existing and future prints. The ability to mix and match Tula's elaborate prints with perfectly coordinated blenders ensures we get the most from our favourite designs. A few of the prints have even been drafted into Linework to provide easy-to-use monochrome. In the meantime, the rest of True Colors sits perfectly with any of the prints from Linework thanks to some clever use of colour. Whether it's past, present or future lines, Tula's fabric has won a place in…
