I just wanted to let you know about an event that I'm participating in, which runs September 24th - November 12th. It's the Tula Pink Sew Along! Every weekday through October 26th, you can find a show-and-tell of one of over 2 dozen Tula Pink quilts, along with a pattern review.
Here is the schedule of guest posts that will appear:
You also have your own opportunity to make a Tula quilt, bag, dress, whatever! You have until Monday,
November 12, 2012 to make something and be eligible for some outstanding
prizes!! Here are the rules to be eligible for entry into the contest:
2. To be counted for entry into the contest, get sewing!! Sewn item must be made from a Tula Pink pattern (or from her book) *OR*
made from at least 50% Tula Pink fabric (such as a bag, dress, etc.).
If you are sewing from a Tula Pink pattern, the fabric does not need to
be Tula Pink fabric.
3. If you will be adding an item to the pool to be counted as an entry,
it must be sewn and photographed from September 24th through November
12th, 2012. Any items completed before September 24th are not eligible.
4. You may add up to 2 photographs per item.
5. You may add as many items as you want, as long as you made them each
within the time frame. If you are making a quilt, the quilt top is
adequate to be entered. Anything smaller (mug rug, mini quilt, bag,
dress) should be completely finished.
My lovely sponsor, Brenda from Pink Castle Fabrics, has generously extended a 15% discount on all Tula Pink fabrics in the shop using coupon code TULA15. This code will be good now through September 30th.
If you don't already have the book, Tula Pink's publisher is offering a discount code so you can pick up your own copy! Use code TULA2012 when you purchase the book from the Martha Pullen store. Support publishers and authors by buying direct!
Prizes will be announced soon, but here's a little sneak peak at the
sponsors that have offered up their amazing products as prizes!
So let's get ready to sew!!! Join me and head on over to the Flickr Group and get ready for some amazing Tula Pink eye candy! I can't wait to see what you create!
(we keep trying to tell her that she is an "inside cat"),
I started sewing!
I would have liked to spend all day sitting here, sewing binding on my asterisks quilt, but it was too hot! I had to take a picture though -- the lime green was the inspiration for the binding fabric I chose.

It feels good to have a few hours to myself to sew again! But I'm definitely looking forward to picking up those cute girls at 3pm! We're going to celebrate with a chocolate chip cookie picnic! Linking up to:
