This beautiful Tilda fabric arrived last Tuesday, and I didn't waste any time at all getting the new fabric cut and pieced together for the final border! I'd found this fabric (part of the Summer Fair collection by Tilda) when I did a quick google search - it was from Stitch Craft Create and I was really pleased with their swift delivery. (I've also ordered some other Tilda fabrics from Under The Mulberry Tree too, but this is the one that I was desperate for!). I continued to use Mettler thread for the piecing, and a Schmetz Microtex needle size 60...
...a final press, and the borders were completed!These Tilda fabrics are beautifully soft and have been lovely to stitch with. It was then time for a quick photoshoot with the quilt top pegged to the washing line, blowing gently in the breeze...
...the finished quilt top has now been carefully folded and stored in a cotton pillow case while I'm saving my pennies ready to take it to Janette at J-Quilts so she can work her magic on it with her longarm machine. I'm planning on getting this one custom quilted, as I really want to showcase the applique and stitchery.
