Tilda Lemon Tree Blog Hop

 Welcome to my stop on the tilda lemon tree blog hop today...........here is miss lemon wearing her pretty dress made in the lemonade print fabric (and her ear linings are the flowerfield print).......
 ...........i was delighted when sew and so asked me to take part in this blog hop and loved the fat quarters of lemon tree fabric they sent me.....the bright fresh colours and mix of bold and tiny florals have a modern vintage feel and are great for all kinds of projects............
 ..............at the moment i am designing a modern patchwork quilt using squares and half square triangles in various ways.....so i used one of the blocks for a cushion in lemon tree fabrics.....
 .............then i made a drawstring project bag from the lemon tree fabrics in reds and blues colour ways, adding in some older tilda spots and stripes too.....these fabrics work beautifully with earlier tilda ranges and also look gorgeous with solids in matching shades.....
 ............the bag drawstring is decorated with a little heart in flowerfield fabric..........
 ............and i sewed some decorative felt bobbles to the bottom of the bag.....
 ............here's miss lemon again with the patchwork pillow which looks lovely in our sunny kitchen..
 ..............and here is the next project..... linen tea towels with dresden plate appliques........
 ..............they make nice gifts too............here are two hanging on the aga......the button centres could be replaced with fabric circles or yo yos if you preferred that..........
............in my book modern vintage gifts there is a pattern for a cherry pot holder which i used to make this project in lemon tree fabrics....and of course i had to change the cherries to lemons for this one.....
 ..........i am looking forward to ordering some yardage and making a quilt now that i have had a nice play with these pretty fabrics on my little projects............
 .............i hope you've enjoyed my stop on the blog hop today :)...........to see more about the tilda ranges and the blog hop please visit sew and sew ideas here.............
..............thank you for dropping by dear readers and for the kind comments you leave.......(you can also visit me on instagram and facebook too in between blog posts)..........wishing you a wonderful week filled with crafty inspiration.............back soon xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

LOVE the pillow, drawstring bag and towels! As always, I'm inspired by your pastel candy colors with all the white to set it off. I've got my Woodland blanket on my lap, I crochet on it every day. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

Helen,
What a beautiful line of fabric is the Lemon Tree collection, and you have certainly put it to the test with all of your sweet creations. I love all of them, but mostly the drawstring bag with the little addition of the heart, and love the pot holder with the applique lemons. Looking forward to seeing the quilt you are working on.
Thank you for sharing.

Your gorgeous makes fit the Lemon Tree collection perfectly. Miss Lemon is lovely. Love that some of the coloured patches you've used reflecting Peter Rabbit plate. Your lemon tree patchwork is beautiful, and little heart attached. Appliqued lemons look so fresh - gorgeous X
