I love Tula Pink!  Her book Quilts from The House of TULA PINK is fantastic.  I like how there are few rules and that a lot of improvisation is incorporated in her quilts.  Also, using of scraps is always a plus.  You can learn from her section on Tula’s techniques which is very informative and easy to understand instructions.  There are 20 projects to choose from and I chose STACKS.

This quilt was designed by Tula Pink with the inspiration of everyone has stacks of books, bills, etc.  This quilt finishes out at 72” x 90”.  I
Speaking of stacks, here are the stacks of rectangles and pinwheels ready for piecing together.......
After piecing the rectangles and pinwheels to background pieces, they are sewned into tubes…..
A finished block . . .
I wanted to make a quilt for my husband’s parents’ bed which we got after they passed away.  It was their first bedroom suite and was purchased in 1926.  I wanted to do a quilt with purples, teals, greens all of her favorites especially purple.  Here is a glimpse of the blocks on her bed before assembling into the quilt . . .
I will post the finished quilt when it is finished.  You should really check out Tula Pink!  She is awesome!
Have a great week!
