A quilt that has been on my to-do list for a while is the Tula Pink "Pixel Perfect" quilt which was a pattern included with one of the early issues of Love Patchwork and Quilting magazine.So when the Eden fabric was released last year, I decided to make a start on it as the animal prints were just what I needed for the blocks
I dug into my stash and pulled fabrics from many Tula lines - Prince Charming, Acacia, Bumble, Eden, Fox Field, Elizabeth, Moon Shine, The Birds and The Bees, and True Colours.
The background fabric is a charcoal Prima solid which really makes the vibrant colours of the Tula prints pop!
The "A" blocks required a large square so they were perfect for fussy cutting the prints that I wanted to feature in the quilt.I was still working on the blocks when Chipper was released so I couldn't resist sewing a few more with the Chipmunks and foxes.
When it was all done, I cleared as much space as I could on my loungeroom floor to lay out all of the blocks...
After much rearranging, I decided to go with a colour gradient as it seemed to work with the prints I had used.
For the backing, I bought some of the lovely Freefall in navy as I really loved the minty birds.
This 90" square quilt was then sent off to my LQS "Rainbow Patchwork" for Karen to quilt.
To finish it all off, I used the mosaic print in Glacier from Eden for the binding, then on a glorious but windy day, we went for a drive to Nimbin (NSW) for some photos.This area is known as the "Rainbow Region" so it was only appropriate that I took my colourful Tula quilt here for a quilty photoshoot with the Nimbin Rocks in the background.
And the finishing touch for the quilt was a label that the Tula herself signed when she was doing her trunk shows over here in Australia.
This was on my FAL Q2 list for this year so linking up with the 2016 FAL team.
