COLOR and Tula Pink!

Tula Pink
This weekend I had the pleasure of attending a workshop with Tula Pink (who can be found here).  She is one of my favorite fabric designers - such a unique and talented artist!  Last night's quilt class ended with Tula sharing about being a fabric designer and the process.  My favorite part was hearing Tula say "Every day I get up and try to do me as best as I can."

I think that's the best way to live life...being the best possible version of myself and putting 100% me into whatever I am up to.

Tula also stated that COLOR is the most important part of a fabric line.  I'd agree...my eyes are drawn to color first.

My stacks waiting to be made into pinwheels

Getting my quilter's facial...more steam please!!!  j/k!

My first pinwheel...


 This is a close-up of Tula's quilt called "Beanstocks".  I am so amazed at her quilter, Angela Walters (you can find her here).  Just got Angela's new book about machine quilting.  Can't wait to read it and start doing more quilting!

And so...here I go...smiling about color, sewing, photography, and life.  Plan to blog more too...
