As I was sketching out my November Northcott Fabrics Colorworks Solids challenge, my mailperson delivered Quilt with Tula and Angela. What excellent timing! Tula Pink and Angela Walters are two of my favorite sewing industry professionals. Tula continuously impresses me with her design skills, collaborations and commitment to being herself. Angela is a workhorse who focuses on supporting others in their journey. (You can hear my podcasts with Tula and Angela.)
Yet I wasn’t really sure what the book would be like. Would they talk about their past quilts together? How Tula designs fabric and Angela quilts Tula’s work? The book is about that… and a whole lot more. They go through color palates, discuss how colors work together, demonstrate the discussion with a quilt tutorial and then ideas of how to quilt it. It’s a full on take through the entire quilt design process and a book I know I will reference in the future.
I decided I wanted to make my solids challenge using one of the purple quilt suggestions. Even though we just finished Thanksgiving, I really love sugar skulls. My dear friend, Patti, told me about this quilt before I even saw the book so I was excited to see how it was made.
Here’s my luscious sugar skull pillow cover:
Do you notice the one shiny tooth? It’s my ode to Tula Pink. It’s a tiny bit of her Parisville line. 🙂
