Overview

Versatile Appliqué Quilts Inspired by 19th Century Tile Quilts. 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.

Meet the Author

Carol Gilham Jones lives in Lawrence, Kansas, with her sweetheart, Charles, and their dogs, Sumo and Grace. Carol and Bobbi Finley had the good fortune of meeting at a San Francisco Bay Area quilting retreat in 1990. The friendship that grew out of their meeting soon included working together on quilts, despite their geographic distance. After collaborating on many quilt projects over the years, they wrote their first book together, Tile Quilt Revival: Reinventing a Forgotten Form, which was published by C&T Publishing in 2010. Carol's quilts have twice appeared on the cover of the magazine Quilters Newsletter and in many other publications, including Judi Warren Blaydon's Collage+Cloth=Quilt, published by C&T Publishing in 2010. In 2004 and 2005, a quilt Carol made with Bobbi and Georgann Eglinski traveled throughout Japan in the exhibition Japanese Imagery in One Hundred Quilts, which featured the work of 75 artists from Japan and 25 from other countries.

Bobbi Finley lives in San Jose, California, with her cat, Thomas, near her son and daughter-in-law, Todd and Kimberly. Bobbi and Carol Gilham Jones had the good fortune of meeting at a San Francisco Bay Area quilting retreat in 1990. The friendship that grew out of their meeting soon included working together on quilts, despite their geographic distance. After collaborating on many quilt projects over the years, they wrote their first book together, Tile Quilt Revival: Reinventing a Forgotten Form, which was published by C&T Publishing in 2010. Bobbi is pleased to have one of her quilts in the collection of the American Museum of Folk Art in New York and feels fortunate that her quilts have been recognized in books and exhibits. Her love for exploring the history of quilts and their makers has led her to actively participate in the American Quilt Study Group, serving as a board member and former coordinator of the study quilt exhibits.
