Your quilt stores order fabric months ahead to give you choices. If you will contact me, I can see what I can do to have fabrics you would like. I keep your basic supplies on the shelves but, I can order them anytime. While at Market, I fell in love with Tilda's Flower Vase Embroidery Quilt. I have always felt close to her because I was actually in Norway when she released her first book. The fabrics are here! The pattern will be released in March at no charge at Tildafabrics.com.
The quilt is also a wonderfully creative way of showcasing our beautiful solid fabrics. The design is made up of just squares in a single size, so there’s lots of easy cutting. The piecing is straightforward and will give you plenty of practice at seam matching. The sky teal background is also pieced as individual squares rather than strips, to continue the appearance of an embroidery." - Tilda Headquarter
For your convenience, I am also carrying the Easy Piecing Grid in the 1.5" finished size by the yard or in packages which contain 20 panels. You will need 15 panels for the quilt. I will also carry the border panels, patterns and piping tool. You can purchase the merchandise from Oxford Quilts and I will show you how to use or you can watch the videos at www.tensisters.com.
