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.
This was on my FAL Q2 list for this year so linking up with the 2016 FAL team.
