Tilda Table Cloth

Hello everyone! I hope you've had a wonderful weekend!


I had a fun few days with my best quilty buddies, up a mountain, with glorious sunshine and sheep for company (there may also have been lots of cake and buns)!

There was lots of sewing done too, but alas I can't show you that just yet.


What I can show you is a summery table cloth I made for the May issue of Pretty Patches magazine.




The clever peeps at Tilda Fabrics came up with a beautiful collection earlier this year called Bumblebee.



If you are a regular visitor here, you will know how much I adore Tilda fabrics.  And this collection is no exception. Ditsy flowers and some of my all time favourite colours together - what's not to love!

So when Pretty Patches offered me a bundle of Bumblebee to work with, I jumped at the chance!


I wanted to keep the design large scale to let the fabrics do all the talking.

Also, to maintain some drape, I didn't use wadding, but simply 'bagged' the top and backing together.


One of the reasons why I love Tilda fabrics so much is because of their vintage vibe (and I love all things vintagey!).  So a lacey trim around the edge seemed a fitting finish.




All I need now is for the summer sunshine to return for a little al fresco dining on my new table cloth!

Happy sewing!

  1. So beautiful, Judith! I love flowery and vintage fabrics even doesn't use them very often. Lacey is so perfect add for this adorable table cloth! x Teje

  2. I love Tilda. This is just gorgeous, however, I am not sure I would allow my family to risk getting stains on it that may or may not come out. x
