When Tilda Australia asked me to be a part of the September Tilda Showcase and design a project using Tone Finnanger's new Cabbage Rose and Memory Lane 'Tilda' fabrics I excitedly answered (or did I shout?) YES!
I've been buying sweet Tilda fabric since 2009 when no-one in my country stocked it. I bought from the UK and Europe, and also did a few fabric swaps with European bloggers, such was my delight in the pretty prints, and I now have a varied collection from back then till now.
You may recognise the centre of my Secret Garden mini-quilt as the Prim Spin Rabbit stitchery which was inside July's issue of The Stitchery Club. It was the perfect feature to celebrate the different Cabbage Rose and Memory Lane fabrics as combined with simple patchwork squares and paper pieced hexies the stitchery now had a 'frame'.
Visit the Tilda World blog (here) to download the project calendar and see what other Australian designers have been making with these fabric delights.
You can also follow @tilda_australia on Instagram to see each project on the day it's revealed through September!
