Show 1406 - Modernize Your "Toolbelt" with Terrific Techniques

Featuring: Tula Pink / Karen Marchetti

Posts On: March 17, 2014


It may sound like a quilter's dream, but it's "real life" for popular blogger, author, fabric, and pattern designer Tula Pink. Within 24 hours of posting her first fabric designs on line, Tula was contacted by a major fabric company who wanted to produce the entire collection! The rest is history. In this episode, Tula—who loves to give traditional patterns a contemporary twist with current fabrics—shares a clever method for building a color scheme and demos how to "fussy cut the Tula way" using 1/4" masking tape and your rotary ruler. But wait! There's more! Award-winning longarm quilter Karen Marchetti also drops by with tips for expanding your machine-quilting repertoire—and your confidence—by building on the basics already in your toolbelt.

Now when I look at my Tula Pink book, "100 Modern Quilt Blocks", I will have a new appreciation for all the work Tula put into it! I love that book and now I also know I need to get the other Tula Pink book!
