Tula Pink Quilt book - blog giveaway



Today I have a brand new giveaway for all you stitchers and fabric lovers.

If you're not familiar with the wickedly whimsical world of Tula Pink fabric designs, you need to check them out!

"Tula Pink is an American textile designer and quilt maker with a dark sense of humour buried in a sea of print and pattern. She plays with images the way a poet plays with words, turning innocuous traditional designs into mischievous little critters.  Whether it's a head of hair teased into a pirate ship or a damask molded into a frog..."

This is a beautiful but practical book, full of inspiration and useful tips.  Whether you want to make an heirloom comforter for your bed, or try a new fabric project such as making a sketchbook cover with pockets for your pencils, this is a great book to have on your shelf.  There are templates included and step-by-step illustrated tips on patchworking; cutting and designing your own bespoke quilt.


I have one copy to give away to UK readers, just complete the rafflecopter below to be in with a chance.

The giveaway closes at midnight on 31st March 2014 and one winner will be chosen at random.

  1. I'm really just learning so I've not taken on many projects. However I'm quite proud of the phone case that I made. It is full of mistakes but I love it.

  2. Hi Liz, my favourite project probably was my daughter's patchwork quilt. Lovely fabrics (even if I say so myself!) and I used an old duvet as wadding so it's particularly thick and snuggly. I even managed to quilt it with a sewing machine (big news in my world!). xx

  4. I do all sorts - cross stitch, tapestry, sewing gifts inc cushions etc but I have just started to do patchwork and have completed my first patchwork cushion! My next project is going to be a patchwork duvet to match! I adore Cath Kidston so have bought some lovely fabric to make it with!

  17. I had to rack my brains about this one, but I think I have to go back to my teens when used to make all my own skirts by 'upcycling' (tho we didn't have that word then) garish 60s ones that used to belong to my mum and my aunties. This was in the 80s/Madonna stylee. I thought I was the bees knees!
