It’s always nice to sew a pretty floral quilt for summer, and the Painting Flowers fabrics makes such a fresh summer quilt.
The Painting Flowers collection is a limited edition, but the quilt pattern can work with any fabric.
The simple quilt blocs makes a sort of organiced chaos patchwork and works well if you use larger bolder pattens on the larger pieces, and then smaller patterns on the smaller pieces.
The quilt measures 80,5 x 51 inch (201,25 x 127,5 cm)
The quilt block consists of 4 different sized rectangle shapes. The measurements are in inches and a 1/4 inch seem allowance is already added. The rectangels in the block will be pieced together in many different ways.
Here are the pieces you need to make the whole quilt top. The letters referes to the measurements abow, Pieces called A are 5 x 3,5 inch and so on. The number shows how many you need. Remember that seem allowance is already added to the measurements.
The rectangles are then pieced together in different ways to make two larger blocs. The letters shows you where the different sized pieces go.
You need six of block 1, three of block 2, and then tree blocs that are the equivalent of the top half of block 2.
As you can see block 2 is a mirror image of block 1.
Piece all the blocs together as shown below, and your quilt top is ready.
We suggest using the “Summer Floral Blue on White” for backing, and “Nelly green” for the edge. The quilting is done by a professional quilting servise.
Have a great weekend!
For the first time in Tilda’s 16 year old history we have made a limited-edition summer collection. It will be released in May, and is called Painting Flowers.
It’s not only our first limited-edition collection, but the first collection that is intended for summer and released in May, so we are quite exited.
The inspiration is of corse painted flowers and paint dots, and as the sun is shining over Norway today, at least on this part of our very long country, it felt like the perfect day to give you a summer preview.
How long this limited-edition collection lasts depends on how quickly it sells, so if you think a Painting Flowers quilt will look good on your porch this summer then get ready. Most of our whole sellers have the collection stocked and ready for the release, and are taking pre orders.
The Painting Flowers collection also contains paper products, ribbons, buttons and boxes in addition to 12 fabrics.
We will release the pattern for the quilt and the bag on the blog in the next few weeks
Have a great day!
We really enjoy the cute textile buttons on vintage button cards, and besides the obvious uses they make great spring and summer jewellery.
Use some hair gel, nail polish, or just water to hold the treads on the tip of the string together, it makes it is easier to pull the string trough the holes.
We just tied the jewellery on, but you can easily add a jewellery clasp.
Have a great weekend!
