At the beginning of June, I made a goal to get some projects finished, and one of those was revisiting my Hula Girl pattern to update and convert the pdf pattern to print for shops. Today, the new pattern is available to download in my shop and also on Craftsy. The print pattern is coming later this month.
I love a quilt design that is fun to make and turns out looking more difficult than it actually is. Hula Girl is one of those that (I think) is a cool design with a complex-looking construction, but it’s actually pretty simple to make.
There are four simple paper templates for foundation piecing…Hula Girl is a great place to start if you are a beginner or want to learn paper-foundation piecing…with fully illustrated instructions and tips for successful paper-foundation piecing.
My sweet and talented mother sewed the sample for the pattern cover…she is a master at mixing prints! I love the fun low volume fabrics in the patchwork, it’s kind of an I-spy of just about anything you can imagine. I have also made other versions of Hula Girl with mixed background fabrics (see it here) and one with dark fabrics instead of light (see it here).
