Quilting envy – Tula Pink

I was very excited to find this lovely book in the library when I popped in last week.

Edited-0519Called “Quilts from the house of Tula Pink”, and obviously by Tula Pink, fabric designer, quilt creator and all round creative genius.

I wanted to share a couple of dreamy inspiration snippets out of it with you. I can see this book being one that I would seriously consider buying for myself, as there is plenty of inspiration in it – from quilts and cushions, to the unexpected – like clocks and lampshades. She also shares some about her creative process when designing her beautiful illustrations that get turned into the fabric that we all adore.





These would probably be my three must make projects out of the book – a gorgeous Houndstooth pattern quilt, one called Shattered Glass, and a colourful pattern which is made to look like the fabric is woven. She is so insanely talented!!

The Book Depository is selling this book for $20 Australian including shipping, so for the price you would pay buying 3 or 4 individual patterns, you get 20 fabric projects which you could make up in an endless variety of ways. Win-win I think!

So tell me, what’s your favourite Tula Pink fabric? I’m loving her Saltwater collection, although the octopus is kinda creeping me out. But totally gorgeous and unexpected in a fabric line, you know? Her now archived Nest collection would have to be a close second. What about you?

    This book looks fabulous! Every single quilt is beautiful (and couldn’t help noticing the peacock chair). I also had a peek at the quilt you made a few posts back – it’s absolutely gorgeous!!! I have only started sewing but would LOVE to be able to try a quilt one of these days. Have a great week! Mel x
