MY TILDA WORLD

I have had a bit of a love affair with Tilda fabric for some time.  Originally I purchased three lines a couple years ago.  And recently decided to join the Tilda Club with Julie at the Intrepid Thread.  My first monthly box arrived this past week.  
Such a fun bundle of a new line called Plum Garden.
Now this inspired me to cut out a new quilt with not only some of these new fabrics, but incorporate them into all the left overs I have from my previously purchased Tilda fabric.
So I have decided make Welcome the Spring Lake Quilt available as a free pattern on Tildas World's Blog.  I cut 128 4.5"squares from all my left over Cottage, Lemon Tree, and Sunkiss fabrics. 
The original pattern calls for a 48 by 64 quilt, but I am increasing it to 56 by 64, so had to cut 32 extra squares. 
Now I need four patches.  I am using a variety of dots and striped Tilda fabrics along with an off white Grunge by Moda.
So one block finished and I am liking it.  
A sample grouping of my blocks to get an idea of what I am going for.  
And now I am starting to work in one of my Tilda stripes.  I must admit I have had to purchase another couple dot colors that are more of a pastel with white dots from Julie.  I think their variety will add to the mix.  It is a scrappy quilt, but except for the white fabric I am sticking with all Tilda fabric lines.

  1. Tilda fabric is gorgeous. My friend in the UK sends me little bits of her leftovers ( for what I make I only need 6x6 squares) and it is a lovely finish

    Love your colour combinations...
