Tula Pink Quilt Done!

If you are looking for the giveaway you can find it here
The giveway winners will be announced first thing tomorrow morning.

2 weeks ago when the Tula Pink series started I said that I was going to make the Pie Crust Pile Up quilt and guess what? I finished it right on schedule! Well actually 1 minute behind schedule since when I sat down to finish the binding I thought it would be done by 1:00 and I finished it at 1:01 (see I told you I was Craizee). I have decided to give this as a wedding gift, I hope the bride and groom like it, I know I enjoyed making it for them. Note here's the original post if you missed it.

The quilting

I learned a bunch about sewing straight lines for the quilting, namely that its harder to do straight line quilting than it looks (at least for me). I started out using the guide on my walking foot, but that didn't work out too well (in my own defense I didn't have it screwed in correctly or it might have worked better). But once I started using painters take it got lots easier.

I hope you enjoyed the Designer Select Tula Pink series. I'd love to know what you thought of the first installment of the Designer Select Series on Craizee Corners. Stay tuned for the next installment in September when I share lots of Sweetwater love, so if you want to join me you still have plenty of time to get your Hometown Designer Select Fat Quarter Kit from the Fat Quarter Shop!
