Quilt Market: Schoolhouse with Tula Pink

Quilt Market is the biggest quilt event of the year for everyone who works in the quilt industry including authors, pattern designers, fabric reps, notions developers, teachers, quilt shop owners, distributors, and everyone else I neglected to mention that has something to do with my favorite creative endeavor.

The day before Market officially begins, a Schoolhouse is held. During Schoolhouse, attendees choose from an assortment of presentations for each of a series of short sessions introducing the latest advances in the quilting industry.

Everyone is together for the premiere schoolhouse session. This year, Tula laid out her plans for sewing world domination, one vibrant rainbow unicorn notion at a time. Even though I have deciphered her plan to form a utopian colony called Pinkerville, it did not deter me from fantasizing about when my pins and USB sticks can take the shape and form of mythological creatures. Her new fabric line for FreeSpirit, HomeMade, teaches us every quilting journey is happier in rainbow vibrancy. Each print is a reminder that any and every sewing notion your little heart desires comes in Pink.

The attention to detail is intense. For example, this quilt pattern displays the decorative stitches on Bernina machines, such as Tula's Special Edition 770 QE.

Tula's given the whole "Support Your Local Quilt Shop" mantra a flip. Clever!

A hoard of ByAnnie's bags were present.

Colors sorted by warm and cool always make me 😍!

This quilt and I have a lot in common. Well, we both have color-sorted rows of Aurifil thread anyhow.

So, are you with me in joining Tula's empire of creative goodness?
