Surprising designs from Mexican tiles.
I was honored when Cheryl Lynch asked me to be included in her blog tour and a book give away.
One of you lucky readers can win a signed copy of her book!
'Quilt Fiesta' includes 10 different projects inspired from the ceramic tiles from Mexico.
Cheryl has cleverly combined pieced blocks and easy applique designs that create secondary patterns seen in tile work.
The book also has design options in the library of center and corner designs that will keep your own creative juices flowing.
There are simple instructions and guidelines on how to create a unique quilt by mixing these patterns.
Each quilt pattern has two different versions which makes it exciting and lets you be imaginative to see beyond the original quilts. (In my mind it is always a great thing!)
I love the fact that it also includes a chapter, From Inspiration to Design
a very informative guide on creating a quilt from your own inspirations!
Isn't that wonderful?
I am certainly going to give this a try!
Last year I had taken above photos of tile work at my grandmother's place when I visited India.
Don't you think this pattern would make a wonderful quilt?
Are you inspired?
