๐Ÿ’—

and I'm today's stop on the Tilda Harvest fabric & Sewing by Heart book blog hop!


I was asked if I would like to have a play
with the new fabrics and make something from 
the gorgeous new book with them.

I wasn't going to turn that down.



I have to say that the book is simply stunning
so many sweet things ..... and Oh My the quilts .....
it also features 8 full-size quilts, plus smaller sewing projects such as pillows, pincushions and sophisticated soft toys. 


I was a little short on time
so decided to make some cute little patchwork pumpkins
well 'tis the season and all that.








They were really fun to make and not as fiddly as I thought they'd be either
and I adore the fabrics ..... those dear little birds x


Here are links to all the other stops on the blog hop

Tuesday 5th September – Helen Philipps
Wednesday 6th September – Me x
Thursday 7th September – Tea and a Sewing Machine
