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.
