Tilda Sewing by Heart: For the Love of Fabrics

Sewing by Heart is the newest pattern and fabric collection book from 'Tilda' (Tone Finnanger). The fabrics are (as always) beautiful and delicately colorful and so wonderfully coordinated.  I absolutely love the designs.  The patterns include several groups of coordinating projects: quilts with matching pillows, soft toys or decor items.  The quilts are pieced in the traditional fashion but the patterns are new-to-me and original.  There are both pieced, modified mola (reverse applique) and traditional applique projects.  They are all beautiful and I had trouble picking out what to do first.

There are (by my count) 24 separate projects in 7 broad categories.  The 7 quilt patterns alone are worth more than the purchase price.  The book also includes chapters covering materials, techniques, scale and full size patterns (there are also printable pattern links),  and a handy suppliers list at the back of the book.

There are nice full color photographs and illustrations throughout.

Published 17th November, 2017 through F+W Media and  Sew and So, it's 144 pages and available in ebook and softbound formats.

Four stars, beautiful and original quilt patterns and beautifully showcased quality fabrics.

Disclosure: I received an ARC at no cost from the author/publisher.
