Twelve Days of Tula Pink - Day 6 WINNER!

02 May 2014

day 6 winner
And the winner of the Autographed Day 6 Tula Pink Fox Field Scribbles Dusk Fat Quarter & Little Somethin' Jacket Pattern is . . . . . .

Leslie Meltzer!!!! 

This is amazingly fitting and really makes me wonder who's sitting inside the Random Number Generator watching us! Leslie and her stack of the first cuts of Fox Field (ever, anywhere!) were featured in the Day 6 Blog Post.

Scribbles

Leslie then commented twice on our Facebook Day 6 post. Once to help a fat quarter project seeking fellow Tula-ite - "Tula's Moxie quilt primarily uses fat quarters, and it is fun to make!"

And the second time as her own entry - "That is AMAZING! I laughed so hard when I read it. Sooooooooooooo worth the wait! LOL." You see, I was a bit late with my Blog Post that day and Leslie kindly inquired about the post on Facebook. If you didn't catch the Day 6 post, click here. It was pretty fun!

Congratulations, Leslie and thanks for your daily entries! Please send an email to annette@pacificfabrics.com and let me know if you would like to pick up your Fat Quarter at one of our stores or have it mailed to you.

Twelve Days of Tula Pink - Day 7 Giveaway

01 May 2014

Flutterbys? Butterflies? Today's Tula Pink Giveaway is all about our favorite sign of Spring - Butterflies!

Heat n Bond Butterflies

So, I'm just going to be honest. You see, we fell in love with Tula Pink's Butterfly Quilt a few months ago. It's bright, it's bold, it's exquisite and it uses her fabulous Acacia fabrics in a MOST magnificent way. 

And then, then . . . we found out the pattern was $24.99. And most quilt patterns are around $9.99. But, then . . .  when we looked at it, we realized that it was OH, SO MUCH MORE than just a quilt pattern and now . . . now we're in LOVE! Sew, sew in LOVE!

Butterfly Quilt pattern


Oh, Butterfly Quilt, how we love you. Let me count the ways:

- We love your 24 page, full color booklet that includes everything you need to know – even if you're a beginner.
- We love your General (REALLY, Truly Helpful) Instructions
and excellent illustrated explanation of how the quilt is made in three parts.
- We love your piece-by-piece cutting and sewing diagrams. We love your full size templates and clear directions on how to use them.
- We love your mini-tutorials on sewing borders (avoiding the dreaded "wavy") and easy curves.
- We love your binding prep hints and simple straight grain binding instructions.
- And most, of all, dear Butterfly Quilt we love your Fabric Placement Planner so we can color and plan before we cut!
- AND, it's in our stores and on our web site!!! (Check back!)

Acacia FQ

So, now that you can see what a great value this pattern is, you may soon have one of your own, because . . . our Day 7 Giveaway is a Tula Pink Autographed Acacia Hummingbird Fat Quarter in Honey AND an Autographed Tula Pink Butterfly Quilt Pattern!!!

Autographed Butterfly

Twelve Days of Tula Pink - Day 6 Giveaway

30 Apr 2014

A Visit from Tula Pink

(With apologies to Clement Clarke Moore) 

'Twas the night before Sew Expo, when all through the booth,
N
o PacFabber wore Fox Field, not even a youth;

Fox Field

The fabrics were stacked on the shelves with great care, 
For we knew that dear Tula soon would be there;

Little Somethin

The tired PacFabbers longed for their beds;
But visions of Little Somethin’ Jackets danced in their heads;

 Foxtrot Sunrise

Then Janet of SODO, with Foxtrot Sunrise on her lap,
Settled in with her sewing machine instead of taking a nap, In the booth the next day there arose such a clatter,
We ran to see Janet and kept up the chatter.

 jacket signing

Her jacket had been sewn in a three hour flash,
She’d stitched up A Little Somethin’ and it was a smash.
Tula Pink soon arrived at our booth with great love,
And signed Janet’s jacket as you’ll see above,

 Leslie

Then what to our wondering eyes did appear,
But Leslie with Fox Field, so glad Tula was near.  
With a little old order of half a yard each,
We cut Leslie’s order and put it within her reach.
More rapid than eagles she paid for it all,
Whistled, and shouted, and had such a ball!

"Please Tula, come back, we enjoyed you so!
We’d ALL love a visit at the 2015 Sewing Expo Show!"

scribbles FQ

Here’s a Scribbles Dusk Fat Quarter to hang on your wall! We’ll do the drawing on Friday, so comment now all!"
It’s signed by our hero, Ms. Tula So Pink,
Our winner will love it, that’s what we all think.
A Little Somethin' Jacket pattern's included so you'll be in sync.

Scribbles Autograph


So comment now here or on our Facebook page,
‘Cause Tula’s amazing and SEW all the rage!

Twelve Days of Tula Pink - Day 5 Giveaway

29 Apr 2014

FIRST - the excitement of 20% off Tula Pink Fabrics & Ribbons continues thru' May 6th at our stores and online. Trims are at Northgate and Bellevue only, BUT all the Ribbons are now on our web site, too!

I'll try not to make this too long today - but, I really, REALLY love the quilt we're showing for our Day 5 Tula inspiration!

Rosalie Quilt

Our Day 5 Twelve Days of Tula Pink inspiration is the Rosalie Quilt pattern card designed by Valorie Wells. It's a stunningly simple design that is just PERFECT for Tula Pink fabrics. The super-size hexagons show off prints SO well and you know how we all love Tula's enchanting prints!

Rosalie from Tula fabrics


Ellen, Assistant Manager at our Bremerton store began a Rosalie Quilt using Tula's fabrics before the 2014 Sewing & Stitchery Expo and graciously let us use it for display in the booth. We keep Ellen pretty busy and Crafty Chris borrowed the section that's done for Creative U last month, so she just has a portion of the quilt done. Isn't it going to be wonderful?!!! You can click on the picture to see it closer.

Tula signing

When Ellen realized that Tula, who was a guest in our Sewing Expo booth, was willing to autograph one of the blocks for her, she was super happy that her quilt was there.

Ellen & Tula

Ellen is a HUGE Tula fan. Here she is with Tula post-signing. I think she was pretty stunned that Tula Pink had autographed her quilt!

Acacia Arrowhead FQ


Now that you're all inspired, we hate to leave you just hanging! So . . . our Day 5 giveaway is an Autographed Acacia Arrowhead Fat Quarter in Sky AND a copy of the Rosalie Quilt Pattern!!!! So nice!
