As usual, it was standing room only in miss Tula Pink's schoolhouse session at market! There, she debuted her newest line of fabric for Free Spirit. With her well-honed deadpan delivery, she told us that this was her version of a "grown up" collection. Of course, we all know that even the most sophisticated collection from Tula will always have a playful vibe and her signature color palette - "cause she's a rainbow kinda gal, and that a'int gonna change!"
With Fox Field, Tula returns to a woodland theme, and her menagerie of animals has grown - there are eight in all and she dares you to find them all!
Tula clarified for us that she does not ride horses, though her mother did at a stable called Fox Field no less. But if she did ride, it would certainly be on a horse of a different color, so to speak. You've likely guessed that the colorways are composed of morning, afternoon, and evening palettes. For as Tula pointed out, you'd obviously want to ride a pink pony in the morning, in the afternoon you ride your dapper gray pony, and in the evening you'd be wearing a ballgown riding side saddle on your blue pony with a pretty purple mane. Naturally.
And now for some quilts! We'll start with Tula's beautiful Acacia butterfly quilt above that everyone is desperate to get a picture of! And of course, Tula has already whipped up lots of Fox Field pieces, with the help of the talented Angela Walters and her signature swirling quilting. Here's a gorgeous dresden inspired quilt that showcases Tula's rainbow palette beautifully.
Tula seems to be on a cirlce theme, which I love! Here's another quilt that she calls "Phases of the Day," and this one shows off the different color palettes nicely, emphasizing the idea of morning, afternoon, and evening horseback rides.
Tula tells us that these first two Fox Field quilts will also be Fat Quarter Friendly, which is great news! Here's a pretty stack of Fox Field Fat Quarters sitting atop an Acacia quilt. We'll have these bundles broken down into the three colorways for you!
And next up, we have this Night Sky Quilt which uses this pattern from Jaybird!
Also using a pattern from Jaybird is this Disco quilt below! This design really plays up the jewel toned palette very nicely.
And lastly, here's a quick and easy strip quilt that would be great for beginner sewists!
And finally, I'll leave you with a fun picture of two guys in a pink booth. Here's Tula's brother Cameron and our Charlie talkin' shop!
