Can you say Va Va Voom!?! I absolutely love this Tulane collection with its bold greens and teals, mixed in with its darker, sophisticated blues and maroons. The prints in this collection remind us of taking an evening stroll down Bourbon Street — they’re just so elegant and romantic.
Not only does this collection look amazing in quilts, it’s also a fantastic choice for curtains, throw pillows, kitchen accessories, and more. The fabric works so beautifully with solids, adding just the right amount of flair to a pattern.
One of the kits that I love most in this collection is called Two Block Hop and it does an amazing job of blending the neutral fabrics with the bold and exciting prints in Tulane.
Another amazing kit that I love is the Girl’s Best Friend Lap Quilt. The look of this quilt is just stunning. If you have a more neutral palette in your home, just think what this quilt would add to a room!
As I said before, I think this collection would look stunning in curtains and throw pillows. We have a free pattern for pillows that I think I am going to use called Pillow Talk.
For my house, I’m thinking about combining the Iron Lace in Raspberry fabric with the Petits Diamant in Avocado. The prints work so well together!
I think for my curtains, I will be able to sew them up without a pattern, so long as I am careful with my measurements. For those, I am planning to use the Diamond Gate fabric in Raspberry. With the long vertical diamond pattern on this print, I think it will really add length to the look of my windows. I know that when it all comes together, it’s going to look amazing — especially when paired with my big brown couch. I’m so excited!
Do you love Tulane as much as we do? What types of projects can you see it being amazing for? We’d love to know!
