Tula Pink Sunshine Daydream Paper Quilt Along my Techniques

Welcome to the Tula Pink Sunshine Daydream Paper Piece Quilt Along where we will build this beautiful quilt and I will share any techniques to help us build this large paper piece quilt.

This quilt is 70″ x 70″ with piecing and paper piecing being utilized to build it. I am providing a calendar of the cutting and steps that we will do each week until we finish the quilt!

I am going to be putting up some detailed videos about each step and how I do the paper piecing and making any notes as I go along. My first video in the series concentrates on the fabric kit, pattern and cutting all the fabrics. I suggest watching that video before starting so that you become familiar with the pattern.

Here is the calendar/to do list for the blocks and sections during this quilt along! Click the picture below to get the .pdf for to print or save on your computer!

Pattern and Fabric Kit

Fabric Kit

The pattern and fabric kit are contained together, so no need to buy the pattern separately.

The fabric kit includes all the fabrics you will need to make the quilt top and binding. It does not include the backing fabric, you will need to purchase that separately. The fabric kit does give a suggestion for the backing as well as the threads that you could use that would pair well with the quilt top.

The fabrics are packaged nice and neat in a zippered clear bag and has a cardboard envelope that you can use to easily slide the fabrics in and out of the zippered bag. The bag lets you keep the fabrics together, but we will be cutting almost all of the fabrics before we start making the quilt top.

With all fabric kits I have received from Free Spirit, there is plenty of fabric to complete the project.

The pattern book is set up very nicely. The pattern lists the fabric requirements with the names and amounts of all the fabrics that are needed, but also gives us a picture of the fabrics so we know what it looks like. All the fabrics needed are included in the kit except for the backing.

There are templates and foundations pieces printed on large pieces of paper to be able to cut all your fabric pieces prior to starting the quilt top. The pattern walks through all the cutting steps for each of the fabrics with pictures so that you can see how to fussy cut your fabrics to get the look of the quilt on the front of the pattern.

The pattern then goes right into the steps of putting together the foundation paper piecing and piecing for making the quilt top! This pattern is labeled as intermediate and assumes you have knowledge about paper piecing.

Week 1 – Cutting & Fussy Cutting

I have a very detailed cutting video up on YouTube showing how I approached the material cutting and fussy cutting.

Several pieces are suggested for fussy cutting to get a jaguar in the fabric, or have the diamonds in the fabric going the same direction and even cutting from the gradient fabric to get the correct look from the fabric!

The fabric cutting is setting us up to foundation piece and for the piecing of the materials. There isn’t going to be any guessing on our part to figure out the foundation piece sizes.. it will already be cut for us!

So head over to YouTube here to watch the fabric cutting video.. I have it separated by Templates also, if you have a certain template that is hard to figure out.

Week 2 – Ring of Fire, Steps 1 & 2

This week we are working on steps 1 & 2 which means we are going to build the inner teal and orange ring! The tips I have for Steps 1 & 2 are:

  1. Choose 24 of the Fabric D 2 1/2″ x 4 1/2″ cuts and put them from light to dark, this will give a beautiful gradient around the ring.
  2. Make 1 or 2 copies of the Foundation 1 piece, JUST IN CASE!
  3. Shorten your stitch to perforate the paper so it will tear off easily.
  4. Add A Quarter Ruler works GREAT for giving you a 1/4″ seam cuts in between.
  5. Iron all seams the same way, towards the last piece you sewed on.
  6. Keep finished foundation 1 pieces ordered from light to dark so assembly of the 8 foundation pieces will give you the light to dark gradient.
