We love Tula Pink! Her collections are always filled with awesome imagery in striking colors. Her newest collection for Free Spirit shows her style in its best form to date -- raccoons, arrowheads, and more! We love it!
I wanted to make a quilt from this collection and I wanted something for my queen-sized bed that would go fast. I used the Designer Star Quilt Pattern by May Chappell as my inspiration for this quilt. My finished quilt is 90" x 90" so I cut 11" squares from 1 fat quarter bundle of Acacia. This gave me 4 triangles from each of the 25 prints in the collection.
The background on the front is Kona in Natural. For the back I pieced together my remaining 7" strips and used a cream French General Fleur de Lis print to finish it off.
This quilt was quilted by Jason Spicknall of Secret Stash Quilting here in Denver. I let Jason chose the pattern to quilt with and it is amazing. He quilted a different pattern in the cream vs the print sections of the quilt and used a sunny yellow thread color.
Acacia is now in the shop, so stop by soon to pick some up for your next quilt!
