 Back to work tomorrow, I have had a great break, I did so much sewing and I even found time to finish a few projects and got some new ones started. Today I was working on my newest design for Homespun magazine later in the year but I can't show any photos yet sorry. Anyway while I was sewing with my much beloved Tilda fabrics ( Opps I've given you a hint ) I was looking around my sewing room and I realised how many tilda things I have actually made over the years.
 What first got me interested in Tilda was a book that had a Tilda doll in it, I thought they were adorable so I made one. Well that lead to one more and now I have 7 tilda dolls.
 I designed a table runner for Patchwork and stitching magazine and of course its made from tilda fabrics, this was lovely to make. Its so pretty.
 Then I made some pouches to hold my sewing goodies.A big one and a little one for my binding clips.
 I made a cute little draw string bag. These are so much fun to make and don't take that long.
 I couldn't part with my scraps so I made some lavender bag tags, They smell divine.
 While I was looking on Instagram yesterday a few of my dear friends had made Lori Holts cup quilt, I thought this would look so pretty in my newest tilda fabrics so I finally cut into them and made this mini cup quilt. I'm so happy with it.

 Last year I made a tilda quilt, its a great pattern by Clare's Place and has large blocks that showcase pretty fabrics, Today I made the binding for it and actually sewed it to the quilt, When the weather is cooler I can hand sew down the other side.
So I do have quite a collection of tilda fabrics and dolls,

My other love is Bonnie and Camille fabrics, but thats another post entirely,

Have a wonderful week and thankyou for stopping by.

You are definitely a Tilda fan but then it's easy when the fabrics/patterns are so delightful.

Have you considered changing your name to Tilda? Or maybe having a little girl so you could name her after your stitching heroine? Just kidding.... it's hard not to be in love with everything Tilda . Her latest book is fab-u-lous. Love all your projects and your ability to get things done! Keep it up. Have a wonderful productive 2015... be

I have had a long distance love affair with Tilda for a time too, but I am not sure whether I have ever made anything from my books! Your dolls are lovely though! Time to look through the books again!
