Tula Pink "Neptune" Fabrics

Of course just about everyone who sews or works with patchwork fabrics has heard of Amy Butler. And since she has come on the scene, Heather Bailey and Anna Maria Horner are hot on her heels with their own fantastic fabric collections, but one designer, who I think does equally as brilliant work is fabric designer, Tula Pink.

Tula "who" might be going through your mind, but in ca
se you have not heard of her, perhaps I should introduce this talented lady. Neptune, a sea and nautical themed collection, is actually Tula's fourth fabric collection produced by Moda fabrics.

Tula Pink has set herself apart in the fabric scene and has defined her unusual and intriguing fabrics as a "delicate camouflage of hidden creatures and themes", which has become her signature style. What I find fascinating about Tula's work is that one does not immediately recognize the subtle hidden images in her fabric.

... like turtles, seahorses, mussels, and anchors.

... or small life rings with the ship name "S.S. Pink".

... mussels hidden in a bed of seaweed, paisleys, and swirls.

What memories or thoughts do you have about going to the beach or ocean?

  6. I guess it depends on where you are from if they are called purses or bags... I would consider it to be the same. I am itching sew with this fabric, but from here on out I will be sewing fall and winter purses since "Park & Garden" was my last summer show.

    I guess they are technically available everywhere, but I have made no efforts to market them in the States with the Euro exchange and since shipping costs are so high.
