Modern Alphabet and I Meet Tula Pink!

Ahhh, what a fun evening. Tula Pink came to town to talk about her design process and afterwards several of us went out for drinks and snacks afterwards. I showed her my Modern Alphabet quilt (about 8 hours after I finished the binding):

Tula was amazing. Both her "official" talk (fascinating and funny) and chatting afterwards (hilarious). She is down to earth and spunky and wears ah-maz-ing glasses. ;)

I'm thrilled with my Modern Alphabet (Tula's design) in Parisville (Tula again) fabric.

It's fascinating watching people see this for the first time. Some see the alphabet right away and other's don't see it until someone points it out. Do you see it?

The quilting was done by Nancy Pease who lives right here in NC. I'm thrilled with it. I asked for something special in those open corners and something else all over the rest.

This is my new favorite quilt and also the largest that I've made at 64" by 76".

Thanks for all of your inspiration Tula!

It looks great! The piecing is beautiful, the colors are deep and interesting, the quilter did a fab job, and the binding couldn't be more perfect. And what a treat to meet the designer. Cheers!
