*** If you're offended by swearing (especially the 'F' word) look away now! ***
Literally two minutes after I did the post about the parcel I received from Katy, Ella sent me a message that she has received (and loves, whew!) Sweary Tula. So that means I can show you her in all her glory! You've seen loads of sneak peeks anyway, but you'll have to cope with a few more pics ;o)
The design for this quilt was totally inspired by Tula's 'Love' quilt. I drew up my letter designs on graph paper - the blocks were sized so that they'd be approximately A4 paper sized (8.5" x 10"). I then drew out some templates and used these to paper piece the letters. The F, U and K are all made using The Birds and The Bees from Tula Pink - and the 'C' fabrics are all from Prince Charming (with some Pearl Bracelet thrown in).
It's all pieced and quilted using Aurifil 50wt in soft white (as opposed to bright white). The background is mostly Kona PFD (my go-to whiteish solid), although the background of the U is a soft grey text print from Sweetwater's Sunkissed line (as is the binding). I could use this one in all my quilts - it's the perfect text print! It's quite hard to see the text in these photos, but it's there...
I may have inadvertently made a few people cry ;o) I am really pleased with how this one turned out - thanks a million to Allegory for running the most fun swap ever - there is going to be a round two so it you're into some not so clean language it may be just the swap for you :o)
