Two of my favorite things, beautiful Tula Pink fabric and a striking quilt pattern. Add in a dash of unicorns and mythical sea creatures in Tula’s signature bright colors, and you’ve got me hooked. (tulapink.com/pinkerville) .
For patterns, Jemima Flendt hit it out of the park with the Confetti Quilt – found here https://www.tiedwitharibbon.com/confetti-quilt-pdf-pattern/ . I’ve always loved the look of foundation paper pieced patterns, but I’ve only ever dabbled in FPP. I haven’t been too successful in it. Just ask any of the half finished ones in my sewing room. Derp. So, when I saw this and fell in love, I completely expected to read the pattern detail and see FPP listed. To my delight, it’s not. The pattern is well written, easy to follow, and the results are beautiful. I can easily imagine this looking great in a multitude of collections as well as solids. The only drawback I found was there was a lot of waste, but I’ve saved them all and will work them into some sort of scrappy project. PS Jemima has a plethora of other eye catching beautiful projects. Take a swing by her site – tiedwitharibbon.com .
So the time came to finally cut into all the gorgeous prints in the Pinkerville line, but it was worth it. I think the final push was the fact that I could see just how it would look (Jemima’s site features the Confetti quilt in this TP line).
Here’s some pics of the progress. It’s not finished, but the blocks are all complete. 🙂
