Tilda fabrics to fall in love with
Love pretty fabric in joyful colour combinations? Thinking of making a patchwork quilts, a rag doll or simply looking for a creative fabric craft project? If so, I thought you might enjoy these selections from the most recent Tilda fabrics collections.
The designs are the creation of Tone Finnanger who learned her love of fabric and sewing as a child. She grew up in Norway and lives – and started her business from – a small cosy white wooden house on an idyllic island about two hours’ drive from Oslo. Tilda’s world is a happy, perfectly imperfect place and I love Tone’s own description of the feeling she creates there: ‘It’s whimsical and romantic, like a ball gown worn with wellies.’
I’ve picked out a few of my favourites from the Tilda Fabrics collections, along with all the links you need to buy them – and get sewing!
Windy Days Tilda fabrics
This is the latest Tilda Fabrics collection and due to launch this coming October. The designs are inspired by the windy days of Autumn. Think umbrellas being blown inside out, hats whisked away on blustry dog walks in the park, twirling fallen leaves… mixing with flowers inspired by Indian block prints.

Bon Voyage Tilda fabrics
Released in Summer 21, whilst the world was reeling from the onslaught of Covid, I love that Tone’s hope for her new travel-inspired collection was that it would inspire us to ‘travel in our minds and dream about the future while waiting for the day where we can hug our family and friends again’

Happy Campers combines flower motifs, tiny bees and a Gingdot pattern inspired by vintage waxed tablecloths. The designs are a homage to happy childhood camping trips.
