Harvest is the gorgeous new range from the world famous fabric designer that we all know and love, Tilda. The collection is inspired by Tone and her mum’s love of the autumn with motives of bird’s, berries and cabbage flowers.
The colours in the range are full of zingy gingers, olive greens, beautiful purples and striking blues. Heather, autumn leaves, the clear autumn sky and frosted greenery inspired these colours.
We are totally in love with this range. The Cabbage Flower print looks like a beautiful mosaic in an old Victorian swimming pool. The Bird Tree fabric is also incredibly stunning. The colours and patterns in the bird’s wings are so pretty and it’s that detail that makes us love it so much.
Although this range is the Autumn range, it isn’t full of different shades of browns and greens like you might expect. Instead, it is colourful and bursting with life. There is something quite satisfying about that. It could almost be a summer Moroccan range.
You can see above the different colourways that Tone has used. Look how lush that purple is. This colour has not been used in previous collections before, yet it could mix with a wide variety of her collections if you wanted to. We love it! And those blues, we could just swim in them!
Tilda has new friends with this collection too. A Cat and a Dog as shown on the right. They are both wearing the new doll clothing pattern as well, the retro looking jacket. These ready-to-dress dolls join the elephant and giraffe from Tilda’s previous ranges. These little friends are sat on top of the new Harvest Quilt which is wonderful. Each block makes a colourful pumpkin that is super scrummy. What is really nice is that you could have this quilt out all year long. It doesn’t look seasonal which is a huge bonus.
Of course, it would not be a Tilda collection without a new toy pattern. This funky fox is colourful and fun and the perfect autumnal friend. They could be made in any colour way with contrasting colours which makes a great effect. I would have to make one of these in each colour way!
As you can see from the photo at the top, Tone has made a pumpkin out of her Harvest fabrics. This pattern isn’t available yet, but keep an eye out because we are hoping she will release it on her blog shortly.
