Tula Pink block 2

Posted by fionatranter on March 2, 2014 at 8:05 PM

Back in January I wrote about the Tula Pink 100 Modern Quilt blocks and how I was going to make a block a week. Well that plan failed miserably but I have completed block number 2 and have photographs to share.

I chose a scientific scheme for this block using the following fabrics from my stash.

Starting at the bottom we have:

  • A Michael Miller fabric "Lab animals"
  • The orange fabric is a 2013 Thanksgiving type fabric from Quilting Treasures. I purchased the fabric because I thought the pattern looked like molecules. I don't have the design name however.
  • I only have a fat quarter of the colourful fabric- which looks to me like microbes under the microscope! you can tell I am not a biologist. This fabric was purchased as the International Quilt show about 4 years ago.
  • Alexander Henry fabric called Osteology, a cool fabric with human and animal skeleton images.
  • The final fabric is Moda Shades of Black by Me & My Sister Designs.

Here is the block laid out ready to be stitched.

The book does not give any written instructions for sewing the block together. However the illustrations are beautiful and very easy to follow.

Here is the final block!
