If you don’t need a lot of fabric, or want a taste of a new fabric collection it’s often a good idea to go for pre-cut products.
Each Tilda collection consists of 9 designs available in fat quarter bundles.
The Apple bloom and Spring Lake collections each have three additional designs available in mini bundles.
There is always a charm pack with each Tilda collection with 42 pieces, 2 of each fabric.
All the bundles consist of fat quarters cut from a meter 22 x 20 Inch (55 x 50 cm).
You can also buy pre-cut single fat quarters of each fabric.
Charm packs consists of 42 5-inch squares (12,5 x 12,5 cm) and is great for smaller patchwork projects.
You need 4 Charm pack’s to make a 54 x 63 inch (135 x 157,5 cm) or a 49,5 x 67,5 inch (123,5 x 168,5 cm) lap quilt.
Hope you find time for some creative projects this weekend!
This spring we have a few new sewing equipment items, among others the “Sewing by hand” thread in two colours and the popular small sharp Tilda scissor in a new soft Teal colour.
The scissor was a favourite for many years before we suggested making it in a Tilda colour 8 years ago, and we still can’t manage without it. It’s the scissor we use every day for both paper and small sewing projects.
The hand sewing thread is a gorgeous polyester quality that has been a favourite as long as we have known about it, used on every hand sewn project in the last book “Homemade & Happy”.
We use it as an all-around hand sewing thread for paper piecing, attaching applique pieces, for all smaller hand quilted projects such as the quilted Santa and stockings in the book, and for attaching arms and legs on dolls and animals.
We always end up using this thread because it behaves beautifully on every project. Now available in the Tilda range, the cosy wooden bobbins come with 400 meters of lovely thread.
Have a great week!
Pam & Nicky Lintott at The Quilt Room have made this gorgeous block of the month quilt using the new “Spring Lake” and “Apple bloom” collection.
The quilt is 84 in x 84 in, 214 x 214 cm, and suitable for competent beginners through to advanced quilters.
The cottage to castle quilt is inspired by traditional antique English frame quilts and has various frames which use different techniques. It is mainly machine pieced but they’ve thrown in a few hexagons which are hand sewn using English paper piecing.

Have a nice day!
