Featured Project by Tula Pink: Color Bars Body Pillowcase

Tula Pink Body Pillowcase

Sometimes a giant pillow is all that stands between me and the jarring experience of falling out of bed; it's like water wings for the bedroom. Just because a pillow can function as a safety precaution doesn't mean it has to be ugly.

Materials
  • Color bar fabrics: 10 fabrics, 1⁄8 yard (0.1m) each
  • Background: 1-3⁄4 yards (1.6m)
Cutting

From each color bar fabric, cut (3) 2-1⁄2" x 12-1⁄2" (6.4cm x 31.8cm) rectangles. You will only need 28 rectangles; you will have two left over.

From the background fabric, cut:

  • (1) 59" x 20" (149.9cm  x 50.8cm) rectangle (cut across the length of the fabric to make one long piece for the back)
  • (28) 2-1⁄2" x 8-1⁄2" (6.4cm  x 21.6cm) rectangles
  • (2) 5" x 20" (12.7cm  x 50.8cm) rectangles
Building the Pillowcase
  1. With right sides together, sew each color bar to one 2-1⁄2"  x 8-1⁄2" (6.4cm  x 21.6cm) cream background rectangle by stitching down both short sides to create a tube.
  2. Make a straight cut through only the background fabric at random intervals.
  3. Sew twenty-eight color bars together along the long sides to form a long column. You will have two extra color bars to use in another project.
  4. Fold the two 5"  x 20" (12.7cm  x 50.8cm) cream rectangles in half lengthwise and press to make two cuffs.
  5. Line up the raw edges of one cuff with the opening end of the color bar rectangle.
  6. Sew together using a 1⁄2" (13mm) seam.
  7. Fold the cuff back over the seam toward the open end of the pillowcase and press.
  8. Topstitch on the cuff 1⁄4" (6mm) away from the seam.
  9. Repeat steps 7-8 to attach the second cuff to the pillow back.
  10. Place the pillow top and the pillow back right sides together. Stitch a 1⁄2" (13mm) seam around three sides of the pillowcase, leaving the cuff end open. Backstitch at each end.
  11. Stuff with a body pillow and you're done.

I've also never written a review, but I was motivated by the contrast of the first two reviews. I would consider myself an "early intermediate" quilter, and I probably own 10-15 quilt books. I thought this book was wonderful, and hope to eventually make most of these quilts and the cuckoo clock. I liked her explanations of the importance of the quilting based on other aspects of the fabric and quilt pattern. I also enjoyed her explanations of the design process. I did find the quilt designs refreshing, and I would definitely have bought the book had I paged through it on the shelf. To me, they are pretty, but simple enough that I believe I could make them successfully.

I am in the middle of constructing Tula Pink's Beanstalk quilt from the instructions in the book. I love the look of her quilt and I think I will love mine when it is complete. BUT, and this is a big but, the instructions leave a good deal to be desired. I'm an experienced seamstress and I immediately spotted a problem with the assembly: how were you going to keep the wedges from going wonky? Her instructions imply that you will be able to correct this after you have sewn 60 wedges together. Don't even think of trying it. I checked after I had connected 6 wedges -- all cut correctly according to the directions -- and to bring the two edges parallell as they need to be, I would end up with with a strip that was closer to 8 inches wide than the 14 I needed and should have had.

So, buy the book, but think carefully about construction, at least in that quilt. I'm sewing the leaves and background wedges together in pairs, straightening the edges and then joining pairs into fours, etc.

The book and the quilts are beautiful, but the directions are not for beginners.

After seeing the author on television, I ordered this book. I liked the beanstalk quilt, and loved the houndstooth quilt that Tula demonstated on "Sewing with Nancy". I thought there would be more quilt designs that were inventive inside this book. But there were only eight additional quilt patterns, and none appealed to me. None were inspiring, just free style rotary cutting strip designs. The title is QUILTS from the house of Tula Pink, but half of the book is piddily little craft projects, like embroidering a star on a lampshade or making a sketchbook cover. If you like Anthropologie, you will enjoy this slim volume. If you don't know what Anthropologie is, it will disappoint. Also, I have concerns regarding the durability of some of her construction methods. Learn to quilt properly elsewhere, then consult this book for style ideas-not construction methods. Not all is lost, however. Tula's fabrics and colorways are enjoyable. I paided $10 for this book. Someday I'll use the houndstooth pattern, and the purchase of the book is proper payment for Tula's innovation with that design. But I would have felt jipped if I had paid more. I hope she tries again, and puts out another books with only quilt patterns which relies on more complex design.

Reviewing this book is in a word, complicated. First of all I love, and I mean love Tula Pink's fabric. I have every line that she has printed including the coveted Full Moon Forest. However, I have mixed feelings about the quilts. Either you love them or not. There are a few I could pass on, and several I love. I do NOT regret buying the book at all. The quilt pattern illustrations are just that, illustrations. I would prefer more distinct images for the artwork, but that's just my opinion. Others may love the illustrations.

Kudos to Tula Pink for creating mouthwatering quilts with a modern day flair! The instructions are very easy to follow. The photos are awesome! Thumbs up to photographer Elizabeth Maxson for her unique styling abilities. She's the best! This book is a must have for quilters and fans who enjoy the beauty of quilts as an art form!

I recently received my copies of the book and absolutely LOVE them. It is refreshing to see quilt books that are out of the box and Tula's fabrics are wonderful. The photography is just beautiful and compliments Tulsa's quilts and style so well. Tula's comments about the quilts throughout the book are fun. The instructions are easy to follow. I would definitely recommend this book to others. Cannot wait to give my cousin our "family quilter" her copy of the book.

It's very hard to write a less than 5-star review for a quilt book. At the moment, there are two reviews: One person loves it, and one person hates it. I don't hate it, but I don't love it, either. I guess I would sum it up like this...if I could have thumbed through it before I bought it, I would not have made the purchase. A couple of the smaller projects are nice, but the quilts didn't really grab me. My favorite quilt in the book is "Beanstalk," which is featured on the cover. However, there is just something NQR (not quite right) about the quilt when you look at it laid-out. I can't put my finger on it, but it just doesn't seem balanced to me. But I love the fabrics. Another quilt, "Shattered Glass" would have had some appeal, but the dark green fabric dominates, and just really strikes an uncomfortable chord with me. A couple of other quilts almost had the same effect.

I can't predict how anyone else will react...that is just the nature of quilts...but I would suggest you try to get your hands on a copy before you purchase it. That way, if you like it, you'll be happy to buy it, and if you don't, you'll be happy to pass.
