This gorgeous quilt in a deep red, blue and cream colourway has a celebration feel, with rows of pretty bunting-style patchwork ‘hung’ on narrow strips of pale print sashing. The triangle patches are easily created with a template and the triangle rows are easy to sew.

Pretty fabric pictures

It’s not easy to take simple beautiful and informative pictures of fabric. And we love these pretty pictures of the spring collections by Sündenherz.de. 
We just had to borrow them for the blog.

It’s always fun to combine fabric in different ways from both collections to make a perfect color scheme for a project. Greens from the Pardon My Garden Collection with the pinks and off whites from The Spring Diaries collection gives you a classic spring/summer color combination as seen here. 
By just using the honey colours, pink and off whites from Spring Diaries you get a much calmer look than with the teal colored fabrics. Nothing is more comforting and safe than warm colors and pinks. Thank you Sünderherz for these lovely pictures.

Paper Piece Patchwork Balls

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.
