If you loved our Tiger Tiger Table Mats, then we'd urge you to try the original version. It comes from Helen Howes, one of the most influential designers of the modern quilt movement and purveyor of some of our most-loved designs. Helen's Morning Tiger quilt beautifully illustrates her use of the 'four-cuts-five-pieces' block.
It's very easy to make and you can expand it as you wish to make a bigger quilt. In fact, the blocks are perfect for all sorts of projects - large and small.
The very antithesis of monochrome, Helen's Morning Tiger Quilt above is made using our Colourshotts and the pattern is FREE to download. It works equally well with other collections, such as our Autumns (below) and a host of other colourways, as you can see here. Helen also takes the concept a stage further, overlaying the Tiger block with her passion for trees, as in her Tiger of the Woods mini quilt.
