Welcome

This is the Tilda studio blog where we post a little inspiration and wish you a creative day. The studio is where Tilda products are designed and books are made, from beginning to end. This is where we build scenes for book photography and create the Tilda atmosphere.

The blog is run by the Tilda team. Blog photography is by Inger Marie Grini, Line Dammen, Petter Bye, Sølvi Dos Santos, Ingrid Skaansar and Tone Finnanger. Please feel free to post our photos with a link to tildasworld.com.

The Apple Butter Collection

Create a colourful home-made look with the new Spring 2019 collection AppleButter. This time all the explanations will be released under Free Patterns so you can print and sew anything you see on the pictures.

Apple Butter is 1940s slang for sweet talk or flattery, and we think it is the perfect name for this playful and sweet collection with vintage inspired florals. Take a closer look at the designs and our matching basics in the  AppleButter catalogue.

The collection is inspired by the elaborate dressing room of the designer’s grandmother where all kind of florals from another time collided in a lovely feminine world alongside beautiful perfume bottles and powder puffs. The sweet patterns from the 40s is what stood out with its honest simple charm.

The yellow tones are perfect for easter projects.

Hopefully spring is just around the corner, enjoy!

Happy Winter Snowmen Table Decoration

We have now released the Happy Winter Snowmen Table Decoration under Free Patterns.
This table decoration is sewn with Tilda Classic Basic fabrics and matches the Snowmen Quilt and Pillow we released earlier.

A single snowman or two are also great decor in a glass bell jar or in a large jar with some fake snow or white glitter.
You can of course decorate the snowmen further using whatever you have laying around. I can imagine they would be very cute holding a mini flag garland.
Snowmen can be out all winter, but for a more Christmassy theme you can add some mini Christmas gifts. The three in the background is just a branch glued into a small cup, and can be decorated with purls and mini garlands if you prefer.

We wish you all a relaxing and creative Christmas!

The Happy Winter Snowmen are here!

We are very exited to present our new free patterns called “Happy Winter Snowmen quilt and pillow“. These projects have appealed to every sewing friend we have here at Tilda Fabrics all eagerly awaiting the finished explanations. The projects are sewn with our new basic collection Tilda Classic basics.

The quilt and pillow is sewn by Anne Berit Røed Pedersen and quilted by Marianne Nybølet (KarmaQuilt). Explanations and illustrations by Linda Clements.

The Classic Basics collection is based on tree of the most popular Tilda fabrics throughout the years – Tiny Stripes, Stars and Dots – slightly redesigned, adding three new patterns to create a lovely soft basic collection with a million uses. The patterns are hand drawn witch gives them charming homemade look. Tilda Classic basics are already out and about in a shop near you or online.

Free quilts, spread the word!

This season we have released tree cozy Autumn quilts here on tildasworld.com, the Duck Quilt, the Plaid Quilt and the Cross Quilt. You will find the explanations under Free Patterns, so feel free to spread the word to your sewing friends and on your social media.

The quilts are designed by Tone Finnanger in BirdPond fabrics, sewn by Ingun Eldøy and quilted by Marianne Engeset Nybølet. Explanations are written and illustrated by Linda Clements.

The Duck and Butternut Squash are from the new Tilda book Hot Chocolate sewing.
