Tilda Autumn 2016 Ranges Blog Hop 🌹 & Giveaway!


**Giveaway now closed**


Welcome to my stop on the Tilda Autumn 2016 Ranges Blog Hop! I am excited to show you the projects I made with the new limited collection 'Cabbage Rose & Memory Lane' by Tilda, available to buy now at Stitch Craft Create.

There is an adorable vintage feel to the collection, with bright florals, sweet rabbits and ditsy flowers in gorgeous colourways. 


Beautiful flowers always make me smile! I chose the 'Lucille' prints in Ginger and Linen to make a Wild Flower Pincushion. It pretties up a sewing space and shows how wonderfully the autumn ranges play together!


My girls got so excited when they saw the 'Rabbit and Roses' prints so it was only right that I used the fabric to make something for them. I chose to make two hour baskets, cute and functional - large enough to hold lots of children's books!


I paired the rabbits with tiny ditsy flowers, the ranges have a really good mix of patterns so you can play with scale to nice effect - perfect for quilting!


Practical and useful things are so fun to make, so I just went for it with the next few items:


I made a Tiny Treasures Tray with my favourite print 'Libby', I layered two strips of sparkle vinyl and added cute Kam snaps for the tabs.


Then another make for my girls, adorable hair bows using the tutorial by She Can Quilt. Very quick, easy and a fun way to use up fabric scraps! I attached little alligator clips at the back and they stay put really well without being sewn down.


Finally a little something for myself! I have already made one of these thread catcher baskets, with the tutorial by The Sewing Chick, and it's so useful next to me while I'm hand sewing that I've made another one to go by my sewing machine.


Be sure to look at the full Tilda Autumn 2016 Ranges, there are also coordinating buttons, charm packs, adorable quilt labels, fabric tape, ribbons and more in the Tilda collection at Stitch Craft Create.

  1. Love the rust color! :)

    I rather dislike cabbage, so no real happy memories with those and even though roses and happiness should go hand in hand, I always buy my own roses, never got some from the husband... I do love the times when I fit into my rosey dresses again after babies. Does that count? ;)

  2. My husband made me a rose garden and every morning he picked me a rose and set it by my coffee

  3. My favorite wedding shower gift was a "start" of my great grandmothers rose bush from the family farm!! After 33 years still blooming in my yard! Reminds me of all my grandparents! Your pincushion is adorable!

  5. Thanks for sharing this blog hop! It's one I haven't followed, but will now with your links. Thinking about roses, it reminds me of my mom who loved flowers, but did not have much of a green thumb. She did manage to have one rose bush that thrived and she was so proud of it! She would snip off the little blossoms once in a while and put them in a vase to admire at the kitchen table. thanks for helping me remember that one.

  6. You made such cute things! I love all of them. My mum's favourite flowers are roses and when I was growing up she had a beautiful sunset-y coloured scented rose growing in the garden. Every now and then she would pick one or two roses and put them in the living room; the whole room would be filled with the scent. Now rose scents always remind me of my mum.

  8. So many pretty projects. I am especially intrigued by the denim cat you have between the two baskets. My rose memory is about a rose that grows besides the driveway to my garage. It is in the back of my house, so I only see it as I am driving in or out of my garage. It is a wonderful welcome home, and sometimes I do get out to stop and smell the roses. It is an Abraham Lincoln rose and it smells divine!

  9. I love your pin cushion and the fabrics are great. The prints are so not my style, but I was immediately drawn to them and will definitely be buying some. My Dad planted rose bushes when they built our home over 50 years ago. While most have been replaced a time or two over the years, one rose bush survived. It's a lovely yellow and pink Peace rose. I have many memories of helping Dad trim and weed the roses, as well as cutting some to display in the house. Thanks for the awesome project ideas and for the giveaway.

  12. Lovely projects. I especially love the bows!
    A happy memory is that my mum often made my favourite cabagge meal (Sauerkraut) when we went to visit her in winter. She passed away last year and this meal will always remind me of her in a special way.

  20. I have 2 rose bushes that I have had for about 20 years! I have dug them up out of my backyard and moved them to WV. How I got them - a house was just sold in my old neighborhood in Virginia Beach, VA, someone dug up all the beautiful roses bushes and set them by the side of the road I loaded them up and planted them in my yard. The bloom beautiful long stem roses! I love pincushions!

  23. happy rose memories,
    my granny had a beautiful pink scented rambling rose,

    my father in law loved his roses, we used to have discussions tea roses v old roses

  25. When I was a Southern girl transplanted to Connecticut for 18 months, we learned that the night before Halloween was called "Cabbage Night." It was a night for pranks and mischief, though as a 9 year old, I was tucked away in bed right after dark. The only mischief allowed was popping up for a potty break.

  31. I loved reading Roald Dahl's books and "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" is my absolute favourite! In the story, Charlie and his family survive on cabbage soup meals with lots of water and only a piece of cabbage each. In fact, Charlie's parents and grandparents would give up their only piece cabbage for the growing boy, and I always felt so sorry for them, but also so moved by their love for each other. Interestingly, one of my childhood dishes growing up is cabbage soup (no my mom did/t read Roald Dahl's books) and I love to imagine myself in the story, savouring every spoon of soup and enjoying every bite of the cabbage. It made the soup especially delicious and sweet! Till this day, cabbage soup is still one of my favourite soup ever because of the memories and emotions I experienced reading the book!

  34. We had been married 8 years and I never received flowers. I came home from work on Valentines Day and there was a vas with 2 perfect red roses. As I was admiring them my 5 year old son Kenny came running in the dining room and said. " Mom I tried to tell dad those weren't real roses. I kept those velvet roses until they fell apart.

  35. My happy memory is my Gran, she was just the loveliest and kindest lady I ever met. She also used to make clothes for me with her own patterns and could knit anything in the world. She always had roses in her garden, along with sweet peas and a lilac tree. Thanks for a great giveaway.

  36. I love these fabrics and your cushion..
    My happy rose memory is of when my little sister was born; my father took a sheet out of the linen closet and painted "it's a girl!" in huge letters and hung it from the front porch (it was their fourth girl, no boys). On the side of the porch we had a trellis with a huge climbing rose called "Dr. Van Fleet" and together the trellis and the sheet made a secluded little fort where we could play. The sheet was up for months.. :)

  57. I met my husband when I was 16 and he was 17 - we went to Sunday tea at his aunts house - after tea we went for a walk together in a nearby park - and he picked a red rose and gave it to me telling me that he loved me. I still have the rose and him. That was in 1966.

  59. I gave my mother 50 roses from my garden on mothers day
    Why 50. Because she had been my mom for 50 year's. That was in year of 2000 and I knew it would be the.last mothers day that I would spend with her because she was terminally I'll with brain cancer. I cherish that memory and will always remember that great big smile and all the hugs she gave me that day.

  63. So pretty! I love the colors.I had a rose hedge, but, given enough time, I can pretty much kill any plant within an arms reach... But somehow, the past 3 summers, 2 of my plants have returned and surprised me with the prettiest pink blooms. I pretend not to notice them... I think they feel safer that way!!!

  64. My favorite memory is when my husband had planted a climbing red rose bush next to a trellis that he had built in the back yard for it and had bragged to me that these were going to be beautiful red roses. We walked out to the backyard a few weeks after spring had arrived to find small miniature pink and white roses growing out of the bottom of the main stem of the bush along with beautiful bright green leaves. He just stopped and said what this isn't what the ticket said! The next week we had beautiful large red buds. No one knows how we ended up with a rose bush with both large red roses and minitures grafted into the same bush. But they have intertwined now for years up the treallis. mburnette912@bellsouth.net

  69. When my son was little I took him to a Mother's Day out program and they sent him home with a sunflower seed in a cup. We took it home and planted it and throughout the summer it grew to be much taller than him. We have the most precious picture of him standing beside it with a cabbage leaf hat on his head.

  74. During our short engagement, my then fiancΓ© bought me a single red rose on the day he got his dole money ( he had been made redundant) by the following Monday I would be lending him his rent money! We have now been married 41 years. So red roses especially with scent have wonderful memories.

  75. adorable fabric, and really great makes. Inspiring. I may be one of the very few with lovely cabbage memories :D My Irish granddad grew huge green cabbages at home and I would help him pick one to go with the bacon (gammon) in the pot. We'd spend some time sharing his passion, a rare treat as we could only visit once a year. The other memory is my great aunt Flo. Whenever I smell cabbage cooking I'm transported back to her lovely kitchen and her wonderful dinners.

  79. My lovely rose memory is the roses that my late mother in law had in her garden. She wasn't a keen gardener leaving that to father in law.. but she absolutely loved her beautiful roses... roses are always special to me as a result. πŸ˜€ Xx

  80. What beautiful makes!! πŸ’— One of my favorite memories has to do with the making of sauerkraut. When visiting my grandparents in Germany, I have fond memories of going to my Oma's garden, picking our the perfect cabbages, and making homemade sauerkraut. She had these gorgeous pots, that she'd fill with all the fixings, and they would sit and marinate in her cold cellar for weeks....and the best sauerkraut would emerge. Ah....I miss my Oma, and yummy sauerkraut. πŸ’—πŸ΄

  81. Adorable!

    My rose memory is of the SPECTACULAR red roses that climbed the fence (that my father had made) along the front of our house. They were so beautiful that people would stop to take pictures! My father was so proud of them! I haven't thought of them in years - thank you for bringing that lovely memory back to me....

  84. Very happy memory regarding a rose. I was living in Barcelona few years ago and on Sant Jordi day ( April 23rd, St. George day) there is a wonderful tradition. It's a day for romance, roses and books. The city becomes full of stands that sells roses and books. Men give roses to women and women give books to men. This happens not only for couples but even for friends or strangers. So if you walk in Barcelona on April 23rd you can easily receive some beautiful roses from strangers. It happened to me and to my friends and certainly was a very nice gift.

  85. My rose memory is: the day my now husband proposed to me was valentine's day. He came to my apartment in the morning with a dozen long stem roses. He proposed that night at a symphony performance of romeo and Juliet and Gershwins rhapsody in blue. I still have the roses from drying them upside down and treasure that gesture of love that made me feel so special.

    ReplyDelete
  86. A happy memory for me is my William Baffin climbing roses. They are beautiful bright pink and about 10 feet tall. When Spring comes I spend hours pruning and fertilizing (mostly with manure). Then come June I'm rewarded with blooms covering the side of my garage up to the roof and cascading over. It's an old fashion rose so blooms like crazy through June and then a few blooms here and there until frost. I love my roses. Their memory sustains me through our harsh winters. Thanks for the chance! bgrantrn at gmail dot com

  87. My rose memory is a small patio rose given to me as a house warming present by my Dad in 1989. It 'sort of' survived, despite my notorious plant killing reputation, but it rarely flowered, as my yard is either too hot, or too cold.
    When Dad died, in 1995, I put the rose, in its pot, on his grave and it flowered.

    It's now back in my yard, and still does occasionally flower
