Beginning Log Cabin Quilt with Tilda Fabrics

The beginning stages of making a quilt are just so delicious. Pondering fabric choices, cutting, and seeing the first blocks take shape…I love that process.

In today’s vlog, I take you behind the scenes so you can see how my creative quilting process starts. (Hint: It often starts with a cup of tea and some pretty fabric to contemplate. )

 

 

For this new quilt, I am using only Tilda fabrics. I wish I would give you exact yardage requirements and I will when the quilt top is done and I know how much I am using of the different fabrics. I’ll keep you posted! In the meantime, here is a list of resources for the fabrics I used.

These shops may sell out fast. However, there are many wonderful little shops on Etsy that stock these fabrics and would be delighted to serve you.

On the other hand, there are some online quilt shops that generally have a great selection of Tilda fabrics in stock. Here’s a list:

:heavy_check_mark: Mountain Creek Quilters: https://www.mountaincreekquilters.com/shop/By-Designer/Tilda-Fabrics.htm

For the log cabin paper foundations, I am using the 5-inch log cabin paper piecing foundations that I have available in the shop. I will probably end up with about 100-140 blocks for this quilt, so plan on 3 booklets of templates if you want to follow my example.

Hope you enjoy it!
