This lovely retro inspired quilt is perfect for any time of year – in the spring and summer to echo the sunny seasons, or in autumn and winter to bring a welcome splash of warm colour. It has fifty-four circle blocks, all made the same way using templates. The quilt uses fabrics from the Spring Diaries range combined with solid off white quilt fabric.
Here is the Spring Diaries Quilt explanation, Template 1 and Template 2.
Spring Diaries Quilt Labels are pretty if you want to add your name to the finished quilt.
The Pardon My Garden quilt is a classic design made up of diamonds and looks wonderful in any setting.
The diamonds are framed by narrow strips of off white, witch makes them “float” within the setting.
We used all of the 12 Pardon My Garden Fabrics and off-white quilt fabric for the quilt top. You will find a detailed list of materials in the explanation.
The explanation for this quilt (and many Tilda quilts to come) is written by our new friend and collaborator Linda Clements. Many of you know her as the woman behind “The Quilter’s Bible”.
Her talent for explanations and step-by-step illustrations is just amazing!

A few costumers have asked us about the Patchwork Balls in the pictures. These are actually our new Paper Piece products this spring. The packages contain paper piece shapes that you cover with fabric using the Tilda Paper Piece glue pen. You can then easily sew perfect patchwork balls by hand.
There are two different packages, one with balls made of pentagon shapes, and one with balls made of biconvex shapes.
Each package come with explanations and paper pieces for 16- 20 balls in two sizes.
All you need in addition to the paper pieces and glue are some leftover fabrics, good hand sewing thread, a needle and some stuffing.
Patchwork balls look lovely just lying in a bowl or on a platter, squeeze one into a porcelain cup and you have a nice needle cushion.
They also make cute toys, you can easily put a round bell in with the stuffing to make them jingle.
