Tula Pink Blue Green Purple . . .

Friends, I cannot tell  you how smitten I am with that there Tula Pink book that my beloved gifted me for my birfday. Makes reaching the end of my personal sixties much more palatable.

There are 100 blocks in this book and I've made 26 of them. Twenty-five are destined to become a quilt for a new baby (that other block is in the book at the appropriate page). What remains to be decided is the lay-out. Himself got involved and between us we devised three possibilities: Random, Yellow Going Up Sort Of, and Pink Going Up. 

If you'd care to express an opinion, I'd be delighted to hear it!

Random

Yellow Going Up, Sort Of

Pink Going Up
Tula shows a layout in the back of the book that is like skyscrapers, and they're all made out of neutrals. Cannot wait to get started on these -- after all, there are 74 blocks that I haven't tried yet!

thank you thank you thank you for posting about this book - there was a sale at Connecting Threads and so I just clicked it right into my shopping cart. It was hanging on my mail box this afternoon, and I've already got paper clips on quite a few pages. It's amazing !!

Just made a. Lock from this book this afternoon to start a baby quilt. I'll put my two cents in and say I like the random layout best.

How fun! I love the random layout it seems brighter. Next is the yellow going up. No matter which layout you pick the quilt will be cheerful!

I vote for random block placement but there's not a loser in the bunch! How wonderful to get such delight from one quilt book!

Are y'all threatened by winter storm Pax? We may get ice or snow and I certainly don't want ice. Come on snow!

Hugs!

I love the random setting. What a "spring like" quilt! Enjoy.
