linework love

Many of us have a particular fabric designer whose collections we covet and collect. For me, it’s Tula Pink – her signature palette of vibrant colours and intricate prints has earned her fans the world over and each new line continues to surprise and delight! It’s my honour to present to you an in-depth look at her forthcoming range Linework, which takes a slightly different tack to the super-saturated prints we’ve come to know and love, yet still carries her distinctive style and inimitable flair for colour. Tula’s been talking to the team about her inspiration for the line and what life has been like in lockdown at Tula HQ. And, of course, we have a selection of beautiful projects to get you sewing! That’s just the supplement – the…

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…

stitching joy

Quilting, by definition, is a hobby. Hobbies, by definition, are supposed to be fun. So what are you supposed to do when it’s not? This month, I’m tackling some of the reasons we quilters find ourselves searching for our sewjo (read: sewing mojo) and suggesting a few ways to find it again. 1 Options are everything I’ll admit, I have more WIPs than nearly every other quilter I know. In fact, it’s a running joke that I keep them in what I affectionately call ‘The Vault of Shame.’ But one thing’s for sure, I have plenty of options when it comes to choosing what to work on, and by having so many different projects going at any given time, I can switch up what I’m working on each and every day. Personally,…
