    Tula Pink on Sewing with Nancy

    While waiting for an appointment this morning I saw Tula Pink on Nancy Zieman's show. I didn't catch all of it as I didn't wait long. Anyway, Tula has come up with a prefect use for some of the beautiful pieces of fabric most of us have in our "scraps".

    She cut rectangle of the pretty designs (flowers, birds, whatever), framed several with the same fabric, attached to a background then used something to fashion hanging wires so the "pictures" look as if hanging on a wall. I assume the "hanging wires" were bias cut pieces or maybe even braid or rick-rack. I missed that part.

    I have some little seed packets, some small embroiderer pieces, some little kids scenery pieces all of which would make good "pictures".

    Google "Tula Pink picture quilts" and you'll get a bunch of images in one link. The quilt I"m talking about is the last in the second row.

    I saw that episode a couple of weeks ago. . . Loved it and love Tula Pink! She is one of freshest fabric designers out there and I love the fact that she is young and hip and just a little bit tattooed!

    I think that Tula Pink is truly an up and coming designer with wonderful ideas.

    the "hangers" were ribbons and she added fabric covered buttons to be the "nails".

    Thanks. I didn't get to watch that part. This slow computer won't do videos or I'd be looking for this particualar one. Most of the stuff I've got for a picture quilt will be kids stuff------------like Sylvester & Tweety and some other kiddy prints.
