Just before the 2014 Sewing & Stitchery Expo in February, Anna-Beth, our Northgate store manager, walked into the office with something fabulous tucked under her arm. This is NOT unusual for Anna-Beth as she is an extremely talented, extraordinarily creative person, but this one was very Tula-tastic!
Even before it was quilted, Anna-Beth's 100 Modern Blocks Quilt was stunning, but even more incredible when it was done!!!
We proudly hung it in our Sew Expo booth and when Tula Pink arrived to do a book signing at the booth, Anna-Beth wisely had her quilt signed, too.
Tula Pink's City Sampler - 100 Modern Quilt Blocks book was SUCH a hit at the Sew Expo that we sold out VERY quickly. Who would have known, we were sure we had enough, but obviously underestimated the Power of Pink! (Estimating how much to order is a little "game" we play in retail and . . . try as we might, sometimes we "guess" wrong. Sigh!)
Once the books were gone, we asked Tula to sign "bookplate" stickers, pre-sold books and mailed them with no shipping charge when we got back home. AND, we wisely had Tula sign a few extra, too!
So, today's giveaway is an Autographed Tula Pink Fat Quarter in Fox Field Scribbles Shade AND a copy of Tula Pink's City Sampler - 100 Modern Quilt Blocks book including an autographed bookplate!!! It may be the last day, but it's a very GREAT day to "play the game"!
This is a totally fabulous book and EVERY quilter should have one, but, here's my endorsement as a non-quilter. I LOVE this book!!! It's bright, fresh, inspiring, well-organized by block, simple to follow, enthusiastic, versatile, inspiring (yes, I meant to say that twice!) and MORE! I bought a copy, love pouring over the blocks and plan to use them on tote bags, the back of jackets, in smaller versions as a hem around a top, for a fun pocket, pillows and . . . the ideas just keep rolling out. I know ALL of you will love it, too - quilter or not!
One of the cool things Tula shared with us is that she is very much a Modernitional quilter. (A term coined by American Patchwork & Quilting magazine in an article about Tula's style and studio last October.) Tula grew up with a quilting mom, but sees things a little brighter and with a fresh twist. Most of her blocks and quilts are created with VERY traditional piecing and it's the way she puts them together, the colors she uses and her bright, delightful outlook on life and nature that sets them apart. I LOVE it that we can do this, too! Thumb through a book, Tula makes it easy and you'll see what I mean.
