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?

If you are a no-reply blogger, make sure to send me your email address.

I will announce the lucky winner on March 6th!

Good Luck!

The fun doesn't stop here!

There are two more days of giveaway left.

Next stop,

Good Luck!

This new book looks very interesting. Well, I hope to win!

Tiles are a great inspiration for quilts. I'd love the book!

ReplyDeleteGreat patterns. I'm often inspired by patterns I see in rugs, and also in nature -- leaves and branches. The chapter on transforming inspiration into design intrigues me. I'm not much of a pattern follower -- I feel more creative and awake when I fly by the seat of improvisation. Nice post, thanks!

ReplyDeleteWhat a perfect inspiration the tile work at your grandmother's will be!

ReplyDeleteI've liked many of the designs I've seen on the different blogs I've visited. I'd love to win. Thank you.

ReplyDeleteThis book will bring back happy memories of trips to Mexico. Just loved the colorful pottery and tiles. Thanks for the drawing. katy.washam@gmail.com
