Tutorial – Tabby Mountain Quilt by Tula Pink
Today I am sharing with you a tutorial called Tabby Mountain by Tula Pink. It features Tabby Road fabrics, and the quilt was quilted by Angela Walters. I just love Angela’s show on YouTube! I found a few other examples of this quilt on the Pink Door Fabrics website, so I used a few of their photos for this tutorial. First, let’s take a look at Tabby Mountain using Tabby Road fabrics:
This just screams Tula Pink, I think. Don’t you?? A paper template is given in the instruction link shared above, but you could also use a 30 degree ruler.
Tabby Mountain Ingredients:
- Fat quarter bundle of Tabby Road or 24 fat quarters in prints (10″ x 18″ size needed)
- 8 – 1/3 yard cuts of solid fabrics
- 2 yards 108″ backing fabric
- 5/8 yard binding fabric
- 68″ x 88″ batting
The first step from the solid fabric you will be cutting 11 full triangles and two half-triangles. Second and using the 24 prints, you will need to cut only four triangles. You can see in the photo above, each row has a different solid fabric color. The solid triangles are alternated with a print. Since 24 prints are used it is easy to not duplicate any in a row or to pair with a complimentary color.
Here is another example of the quilt. You may consider this a Christmas quilt but if you look closely at the prints chosen, none are limited to the holiday. I love the different plaids, stripes, and low volume prints used. Each row does not have the same ‘solid’ print used across it either. There is also a Halloween version photo that I didn’t share but you can easily find if you are interested.
This seems like a very versatile quilt pattern. The finished size is approximately 60″ x 80″. That makes a very generous cuddling quilt. This just might be a good choice for us when someone asks us to make a quilt for them. It’s not too difficult yet you can certainly be very creative through your selection of fabrics.
