At first peek I loved Tule, the new fabric collection by designer Leah Duncan for Art Gallery Fabrics. It's peachy pink, terracotta orange, minty green, sunny yellow, & aqua to cobalt blue scheme is color palette perfection in my opinion. So, when a Nevada Sun FQ bundle paired with coordinating Pure Elements Solids, recently arrived at my door I had a quilt idea ready in anticipation.
The pretty Tule colors brought images of the horizon at dusk and sunsets at the shore to my mind, and became my quilt design inspiration. I quickly drafted a pattern including repeating cuts & piecing, creating a quilt top that came together incredibly quick! I was thrilled with the result and shared a few pics on my Instagram along the way.
I snapped some fancier photos Friday evening just before nightfall on the top of Dutch Hill Road. Seeing the sunlight streaming down through the quilt top resembled stained glass, irradiating all the pretty Tule rectangles. It was beautiful!
So beautiful I have it hanging in my sewing room window while I piece together my quilt back this morning, and then it's off to Melissa at Sew Shabby Quilting to work her magic!!
For those of you as smitten with Tule as I am, my fabric notes include : : Tule is with Pure Elements Solids in Sandstone, Apricot Crepe, Burnt Orange, Mirage Blue, Parisian Blue, Nocturnal, & Banana Cream for this quilt.
You can find these pretty fabrics newly available at The Intrepid Thread, Fat Quarter Shop, Stash Modern Fabrics, and Pink Castle Fabrics!
