Thinking about the 'Tilda Event'.

I wrote about buying tickets to the Tilda event next February and although I love the fabrics and I know they originate in Norway I realised that that was about all I knew.  So I did some research.

( I see that the Melbourne event is sold out but there are some tickets left for Brisbane, but who knows for how long?)

I found an article about Tilda's designer, Tone Finnanger, who also lives on an island!

I have to say that I am even more impressed by her work after reading this.

Then I came upon this interview on You Tube which gives a really good insight into her design process.


Her design ethic also reaches to the use of a high quality base cloth.  (Many designers have great designs but the fabric it is printed on is cheap.) And the fact that she produced specialised fabrics for her toys is wonderful.  But, I didn't know that there is a backing fabric for Tilda quilts.  I'm going to have to ask about that one.

(You can find lots of free things on the Tilda website.)

Yes, they are few and far between.
