If you are a follower of this blog you might remember a looong time ago I was desperately looking for three scrappieces of a Tilda fabric.
Thanks to some very nice fellow crafters I managed to get those last pieces I needed to finish this quilt. It's been finished for a couple of months, but it took me a while to photograph it.
This is my first finished big quilt. It measures about 105x145cm. You might remember the first finished quilt I made for baby Alicia, but it was much smaller.
For this quilt I used Tilda fabrics designed by Tone Finnanger. The collection is called "fruit garden". The back is a fushiacolored cotton fabric.
I made up the pattern myself. I started by cutting 9x24cm pieces. Three of the patterns were to be joined horisontally and three vertically.
Every of these three fabric pieces made a square. I attached them together and got a pretty neat pattern. Originally I wanted to have strips of fabric in between the squares to hide any imperfections, but it turned out I had been quite good with keeping exact measurements and the squares joined up perfectly. Almost the whole quilt is machinestitched except the fushiaborder which is handstitched with about 1cm long stitches. It took a while, but I wanted to make it properly like a quilt is supposed to be made.
Do these colors match your decor perfectly? Then good news!
This quilt is up for sale. It has been machinewashed once in 40 degrees C and comes from a smoke- and petfree home. I am currently working on a webshop where it will be available, but if you're interested, you can book it straight away. Just e-mail me at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
