Oooooohhhh look at what has just hit the shelves.  We have been desperately waiting for this range to arrive.  Full of dazzling colours with wonderful detailed designs, this is a fun collection and we’re itching to get cracking on a project with it.

There is so much you can do with these fabrics but if you are a little stuck for an idea, then how about this free pattern download Tabby Mountain designed by Tula Pink and quilted by the talented Angela Walters. You can download here or by visiting Tula Pink’s website.

It uses the new 30 degree ruler (or you can use the template in the pattern) and a fat quarter bundle from the range plus 1/3rd yd (approx 35cms) of eight solids.  We sell all the Tabby Road fabrics online plus a fat quarter bundle of the collection that has a cheeky 10% off.

Or if that seems a little too complicated then how about our pattern Pavlova (pictured below) which features in our book Dessert Roll Quilts.  You can download our Pavlova pattern here for FREE.  In the picture below we used one of Tula Pink’s previous collections so you can see that pattern really lends itself to big bold prints. The pattern uses a dessert roll (twenty 5in strips) which we will be busy cutting very shortly. pavlova

If perhaps, these fabrics are a little out of your comfort zone then we urge you to step outside, be brave and simply try sewing with them.  The fabrics are pieces of art – the more you look and work with them, the more that little details and nuances begin to emerge and they will keep surprising you time and time again.

Right…now off to go and stroke these gorgeous fabrics.
