Tula in Stitches
Tula Pink is an illustrator, quilter, and author who is probably best known for her work as a fabric designer. Currently, Tula works with Free Spirit Fabrics to develop multiple fabric collections every year.
The exhibit includes a collection of quilts that showcase an impressive array of colorful and cheerful fabric designed by Tula. As you admire the quilts and the fabric, your eyes will also land on an animal or two creeping along the quilt blocks. In many of her signature quilts, Tula likes to hide animals in her designs.
Tula graduated from Otis College of Art and Design in Los Angeles, California, and she worked briefly as an exhibit designer for museums in Southern California where she grew up. Her signature designs have been adapted to fabrics, woven ribbons, paper products, needlepoint kits, embroidery patterns, etc., and can be found in independent fabric shops and retailers all over the world.
