Spanish Tiles

I am so happy to be able to reveal my Spanish Tiles quilt.  
 You'll find the super easy pattern in Spring 2011 Quilts and More magazine.
I just received my copy today.
I love this quilt.

It is made with Moda Basic Grey Blush fabric line.
It has a bit of a Valentine feel I think.



This is the original 'Spanish Tiles' quilt.


I made it in Flutterby by Tula Pink.
It was made with charm packs that I had in my stash.
Tula Pink style Spanish Tiles hung on my living room wall for months. It about drove me crazy that I couldn't show it to you.

Check out the quilting done by Jackie of Canton Village Quiltworks.
She quilted both of the these for me.
 I love them both.

The picture do not do these quilts justice. I mean I know I am biased...but really to see the quilting textures and prints makes a big difference.
There are individual motifs in the plain squares that also look like Spanish Tiles. It's amazing.
I am excited to have the blush version of tiles back home, just in time for Valentine's Day and well to me it looks an aweful lot Valentine-ish. It's even quilted with this pretty artful heart pattern.
Notice how much the design changed in Blush? no yo-yos and no rick rack! totally stripped down. BUT still a great quilt. I loved it sooo much once it was bound and washed that I nearly refused to send to Quilts and More!

Anyhow, tomorrow I am off to sew with the peeps in Columbus.
Should be a grand Saturday :)

Vickie, I love it. I've been looking for the perfect pattern to use some scraps from a previous project. Looks like I found it. And I just picked up the magazine yesterday. Karma, kismet, meant to be...I think so.

I love it too. In fact I bought the magazine to make another quilt and saw this one and fell in love (of course it didn't hurt that you used Blush) I have ordered my fabric and waiting for delivery. Thank you.
