• A contemporary take on a charming quilting tradition • Use your favorite appliqué technique-needle turn, machine appliqué, or fused • 6 projects teach you about designing and constructing various styles of tile quilts, from traditional to contemporary. • Includes a fascinating history of tile quilts, plus photo galleries of both historic and contemporary quilts • Big blocks of 10" x 10" or even 15" x 15" are great for bold contemporary fabrics • Easy "grouted" designs let you show off curves and irregular shapes • Great way to use many different fabrics, scraps too! • Choose solid or pieced backgrounds to enhance your "tiles"
Inspired by nineteenth-century tile quilts, these projects work beautifully with today's colorful, contemporary fabrics, but they retain that folk-art style that makes them so much fun to sew and show off.
