and I'm so very sorry to all who missed out or got 'cart jacked'

Tilda + Bumblebees = V. Happy me x

Hello lovely friends

So, I'm today's stop on the Bumblebee blog hop!

Quite a while ago now I was asked if I would like to have a play
with some pretty Tilda fabrics from the new 
'The Bumblebee' collection

Tilda + Bumblebees = V.Happy me

Oh they are such beautiful prints .....

I had a little think and decided to make a cushion cover
with the pretty collection that I received.

I thought English paper piecing would work perfectly
with the beautfully petite prints
and I couldn't resist adding a little more bumblebee~ness
Bet you can't guess who's bagsied this?

The back is just a simple envelope style with some pretty edging

Here are links to all the other stops on the 'Bumblebee' blog hop
So many gorgeous things have been made.
