“Everglow began as a collection of neutrals and evolved into a full collection of radical color designed to add depth to the Tula Pink world of fabrics.
When I began designing this collection, I was searching for something new to say about color that would still live in my world. The only realm of color that I have never touched on is the world of neutrals, those subtle colors that create the perfect backdrop to the vibrant color that I am already so fond of. Soft, earthy colors alone wouldn’t stand up to my everyday colors so I decided to pair their whisper with the loudest scream of color I could create on cloth – NEONS.”– Tula Pink
Have you seen Tula Pink’s Neons & Neutrals? These collections introduce a whole new range of Tula hues– rainbow neutrals + 3 brand new custom NEON colors. The neons were color-matched to the electric hues found in Tula’s upcoming Free Spirit Fabrics collections, Everglow and Neon True Colors.
The Neons & Neutrals collections were launched at Fall Quilt Market 2022 in Houston, TX with a fabulous presentation by Tula herself in Aurifil’s booth:
As Tula explains, these collections are available as limited edition sets. The custom neons will not be added to our color library and there are a finite number of collections available. We’ve been talking about these electric hues and these fabulously curated sets for months now and we’re excited to say that the 20 Small Spool set & the 12 Large Spool set are in stores TOMORROW! April 1 is our official release and we’ve essentially been happy dancing around the office all week. Snag your sets via the links below — you won’t want to miss adding these hues to your personal thread library!
Today, we’re here to highlight one of the most amazing celebrations we possibly could have dreamed up for these stunning collections. Free Spirit Fabrics spearheaded a star-studded maker’s tour featuring the fabrics of Everglow & True Colors Neons + Tula’s Neons & Neutrals threads. The tour kicked off in January with a series of unboxing videos:
Since then, we’ve been following along with these 9 incredible creatives, eagerly anticipating each new progress post and finally reaching the project reveals. We’re sharing final projects for the first 3 today — courtesy of Heather (@strawberryquiltcake), Elissa (@quilting_elissa), and Sara (@sewsweetness).

Heather has been flooding our feeds with all of the glorious neons since the tour kick-off in January. With her stunning photography, the neon hues appear to jump right off the screen, allowing us all to properly daydream and plot our own creative makes. Beyond those preview photos, though, we’ve been swooning over all of Heather’s artfully constructed Tula inspired bags.
We’d encourage you to check out Heather’s IG for a closer look and more Tula inspiration!

I am over the moon excited for everyone to have these gorgeous fabrics and threads in their hands very soon … these are MUST HAVE collections to add depth to the Tula Pink world of fabric.@quilting_elissa
Following on Elissa’s words, we were over the moon excited to see her project reveal — likely one of the most epic quilt coats we’ve ever laid eyes on!! For her Quilt Coat – with a twist!, Elissa used Everglow, Neon True Colors, True Colors, Tiny Dots, Linework, & Tula Pink Solids. Yes, it’s electric. Yes, the sleeves are removable. Yes it is our new must-have fashion item! Huge kudos to Elissa!

Sara | @sewsweetness
When I first met @tulapink everything stopped. My brain stopped working, my voice wouldn’t speak. It was honestly a pivotal moment in my life, and to say that knowing her has taken my creative journey in a special direction would be an understatement.@sewsweetness
Anyone who is familiar with Sara Lawson of Sew Sweetness knows her deep connection with Tula Pink, from using her fabrics as inspiration for countless bags over the years to her epic tattoo sleeve. We are in love with Sara’s initial launch featuring Everglow, True Color Neons, and Neons & Neutrals — her brand new Sprinkles Baking Tote pattern available in 4 sizes. The samples shown were stitched up by Michelle of @barabooboo_designs.
Be sure not to miss the rest of Sara’s new pattern launches — follow along with her via the buttons below!
That’s it for today! We hope that you’re as in love with all of these remarkable makes as we are. Join us next week for Part 2 featuring three more makers from the Tula Everglow Influencer Tour!
