Tula Pink Sew Along: LOVE Quilt (Sponsored by Abakhan)

This post is sponsored by Abakhan Fabrics (UK).

Hello!!! Today’s my big day: My Tula Pink Love Quilt pattern review is up on Sew Sweetness! Please go have a look – it’s a great pattern and if you’re a newer quilter it’s a perfect way to experiment with negative space, wonky blocks and just a little bit of piecing. If you’re an experienced quilter, it’s a fast, easy quilt with plenty of WOW.

I used Klona solid red fabric for the background; it was the first time I’ve ever used it and Will at Abakhan Fabrics was kind enough to send me some to have a play. I’ll do a full review on Thursday, in case you’ve been wondering about using it.

Thanks for looking, my friends!! :) And a HUGE thank you to Sara for having me as a guest!!!
