The Hattie Burdick Quilt

This quilt is featured on WomenFolk as an example of a Tile quilt or Stone Wall quilt, a style popular in the late 1800's. Other names have to do with streets or pavement. This quilt has lots of images including flowers, cats, horses, etc. This would be a good travel project since each block is completely independent of the others (at least in this particular quilt).
Has anyone read "Tile Quilt Revival" by Jones and Finlay? Now I'm curious.

I have that book and made a few blocks from it. It's pretty good. There are some great designs in it. Here are a few of my posts about the book and one block I made from it.

LOVE LOVE LOVE that quilt!

I have taught a few classes based on the Tile Quilt book, and it's a lot of fun. I've also done blocks on my own without using a pattern, like they probably did in the 19th c. If you like applique, you will love it, and even non-appliquers seem to like it. It's very easy - the fabric selection is the whole thing.

I like this style of quilting. I have a few things I would like to make this way. I while lack the creativity to do it. But have added it to the back of the brain to work out a plan while I work on my current projects.

I have the book and think it is well done. I just haven't had time to try out the tile look. Maybe 2013.

Remember Bonnie's blocks from V.'s retreat? Love how this looks but don't know if I have the patience.
I have done a few blocks by machine
though.


Let us know about the book and
Happy Sewing
