Tilda and Gail Pan

For the Tilda and Gail Pan Design lovers my post title has captured your attention, hopefully long enough to read this post, comment and even come back for another visit?
Kerryn and her team at The Country Yard have been very busy sewing an array of tempting delights to whisk away to Auckland Festival of Quilts to where they will be merchants.

The first delectable quilt is this Tilda Bumble Bee quilt design. Kerryn asked for E2E quilting I thought this free hand quilting looked like "Spinin' Bumble Bee Flight"..................

I used Glide thread in the colour Cool Mint over the cotton batting Kerryn supplied. Look at the pretty curved piecing.

Kerryn asked for the Full Quiltmekiwi Binding Service on all three quilts you will see here today.
Next is another Tilda quilt, called Cottage Collection.

E2E quilting again, this time a simple meander using Glide thread again, this time in the colour Linen.

Kerryn had included two cushion fronts and some calico for the cushion backs to be quilted at the same time as the quilt.
The next quilt is a Gail Pan Design called "The Blessings of Nature". This one has custom quilting.

The stitchery blocks will have buttons attached so the quilting was very minimal. Glide thread again in Military Gold and Fantastico thread in the colour Pheasant. Some straight lines, some swirls and loops.

                             You can see the lovely mustard coloured backing fabric.

If you enjoyed these quilts and just have to make one for yourself, see the girls at The Country Yard they will sort you out with a lovely parcel all for you!


  1. Lovely fabrics in every quilt, and the proverb, I can see that in a wall hanging.

  2. Pretty quilts--I especially love the one with the stitchery. Gail Pan's designs are so sweet.
    Great proverb!

  3. Swooning over the Tilda today Leeanne - Kerryn sure does turn out some stunning quilts. Love the Gail Pan one also & Love your little verse at the end :-)

  4. Aren't they lovely quilts? And lover-ly finished, too :-) Great proverb, Nancy's right, it would be wonderful as a wall hanging.

  5. Lovely quilts enhanced by your great quilting Leeann. 😊
