Urban Threadsters loved fabric designer Tula Pink when she contributed her first embroidery design to Urban Threads, the beautifully intricate Full Moon Owl. She’s back, with new embroidery designs to coordinate with her two current fabric collections — The Birds and the Bees, and Salt Water — plus a third, Acacia, due out in September!
The fabrics in each collection inspired these richly colored, nature-inspired designs, including quilting designs to stitch through layers of fabric and batting. The possibilities are endless — mix and match embroidery and fabrics to create quilts, wall hangings, pillows, bags, and anything else your creative heart desires!
