I know, I know, I’m hopping and sewing along all over the place right now!  Anyway, here’s the main reason for my secret quilt that I’ve been working on over the past few months.  My post will actually be while I’m away at Sewing Summit spending time with Sara herself!  So without further ado, it’s over to Sara:

Announcing the Tula Pink Sew Along! If you’ve been around my blog lately, you know that I’m a huge fan of Tula Pink. Besides being a gifted artist slash fabric designer, she is also a just-as-gifted quilt pattern designer. You can see many of her quilt patterns here, as well as additional patterns in her book, ‘Quilts from the House of Tula Pink’. If you don’t already have it (and you must!!), get your copy of the book here.

This sew along will roll out in two phases; in Phase 1, I will be introducing you to a Tula Pink quilt created by my talented group of guest bloggers! Each paper quilt pattern and book quilt pattern will be represented, so you will get to see a huge line-up of quilts! You can check my blog every weekday from September 24th through October 26th, where you will find a new guest post every day highlighting the quilts they’ve made and reviewing the patterns.
