The Tula Pink City Sampler Sew Along will officially close on January 31st. We have seen so many amazing blocks these past 7 months, and I am so happy to see so many of you following along! You have plenty of time to catch up on any missed blocks or piece your quilt top. To be fair to those who have been participating, the prizes will be eligible to those who complete at least 60 blocks from the book. You can piece them in any way you wish (it doesn’t necessarily have to be a layout from the book).
Thank you to everyone that participated in the sew along…I know it was a long haul, but there are so many dedicated among you, and I think it was just fantastic at the level of participation for such a huge project! Thank you so much to my co-hosts for this event, Julie from Jaybird Quilts, Kim from My Go-Go Life, Gina from Gina Pina, and Emily from Crazy Old Ladies! You were so wonderful, and it was just beautiful seeing the fabric variations that everyone chose for their quilts!
Now it’s time to announce some prizes! As promised, Tula Pink will be choosing the Grand Prize winner and the Runner Up herself! Of course, we all worked hard, but wouldn’t it be wonderful to get some special recognition from Tula?!
I’m crazy excited that Julie was able to secure an extra-special prize for you…the Grand Prize winner will have her quilt longarmed by Angela Walters herself!! Angela wrote a beautiful post on her blog about working with Tula over the years, so you should definitely go and check it out! Could you imagine a better prize?
Not only is Angela a talented longarmer, but she is also a fabric designer for Art Gallery Fabrics and a 3-time author. I have both of her books (pictured above), Free Motion Quilting with Angela Walters and In the Studio with Angela Walters, and she has a new book coming out in June called Free Motion Quilting Workbook: Angela Walters Shows You How!
Drift by Angela Walters for Art Gallery Fabrics arrives this March. It’s full of seaside imagery and beautiful blue and coral colors.
Besides the longarm service, the Grand Prize winner will also receive this out-of-print and hard-to-find bundle of Tula Pink fabrics. It’s a great way to add to your collection of Tula Pink!
The runner-up will be receiving this great starter park from Pellon, a large box of Tula Pink spools from Aurifil thread, and a $25 gift certificate to Pink Castle Fabrics!! As you know, Pellon is definitely my go-to for batting and interfacing, and I don’t use anything but Aurifil thread on my quilts, bags, and garments!!
If you have finished your City Sampler quilt top, feel free to enter it below in the linky party so everyone can admire it! We’ll be checking back in a few weeks to see the winners as Tula has chosen them! Good luck to all!!
