Have you ever walked into a restaurant or public building and thought to yourself that the tiles would sure make a gorgeous quilt pattern!?
You “KNOW” that I have…I’ve posted pics from my travels of tile floors, tile table tops, tile counters…even tiles found in a Taco Bell Bathroom that would make a great border design! I’ve taken pictures of tile designs all across The Netherlands, and Paris, The Carribean, Mexico – Anywhere I can find quilt-inspiration!
A few weeks ago Cheryl Lynch contacted me to participate in her blog tour for the release of her new book Quilt Fiesta! Just one look at the cover and I knew I wanted to spend some time with this book.
It is splashy and fun and fresh and makes me OH SO READY for spring and summer!
There is applique, piecing, wonderful color, cute projects large and small, and INSPIRATION!
It’s like a history lesson and a quilt lesson at the same time. There are images of actual tiles, the process of the painting and designing and from there how they end up in Cheryl’s delightful quilts!
I remember the first time I sat at a tiled table in a Chili’s restaurant…just captivated by the colors and designs in the tiles. I know you’ve thought it too! Now Cheryl will show you how to take those designs and turn them into your own tile-inspired quilts!
