Grand Stands -

An original illustration from the Slow and Steady Tula Pink Collection titled:  Grand Stands.  This design was done for Free Spirit Fabrics in 2015. It is signed and dated by Tula herself.  And absolute incredible chance to own artwork from a renown quilt designer.  If you love Tula Pink like we do - and we know you do - then bid now!

Artist Statement: This sketch is the original drawing for what would become the “Grandstands” print in my Slow and Steady fabric collection for Free Spirit Fabrics. Slow and Steady told the well-known fable of “The Tortoise and the Hare”. I was drawn to the story of an earnest young turtle who proved everyone wrong through hard work, determination, and strength of character against arrogance and entitlement. This print was designed to represent all of the characters that came out to cheer the turtle on. At the end of the story they forgave the Hare for his character flaws and welcomed him back into the community. They represent second chances and acceptance. The sketch was drawn in pencil on design vellum. It was eventually redrawn by Tula Pink digitally in order to prepare for printing on fabric.
