Sewing by Heart | Tilda | a review

An-honest-book-review-of-Sewing-By-Heart-book-by-Tilda

This is the newest book by Tone Finnanger [Tilda] published earlier this year.  Inside the book are quilts, appliqued cushions, patchwork animals, pumpkins, bee hives complete with bees, Father Christmas with a quilted beard and patchwork Christmas Stocking to name a few projects.

The Bumblebee quilt is a kind of drunkards path design, it comes with good instructions and full size templates.  The Elephant is adoreable and would make a great child’s gift, simple and quick to make.

Tilda has an unusual way of constructing some of the shapes, prefering to draw on fabric and stitch along the line, then cutting out.  I tend to trace a template and add a seam allowance and sew that way, just because it makes more sence to me.  If I have time before Christmas I’ll make the Father Christmas, although the beehive would be a great make and the bee is the symbol of my local WI.

This is a lovely book and I have so enjoyed reading it.  The cottage quilt has inspired me to plan a baby quilt for a friend in the new year. I found the video below on you tube and thought I’d share, as it’s so sweet.
