Tile quilt update


Phyllis mentioned me this post from Cyndi about an antique tile quilt
It inspired me so much now I want to work on my version again. 


I don't work often on this quilt because I have my doubts if it is becoming a nice quilt. It is also very busy. 


At least it is a 'one of a kind' quilt.


...and I enjoy to work on each block. I like appliqué and each block is a lot of appliqué ;-) 
It is all free hand, this way I don't know how each block is finished once I start it, fun!
Well If I'm going to finish this project I want to make a queen size quilt so more blocks to go.

O, wat wordt je quilt mooi Lucy.
Goed dat je hem weer oppakt.
Ik vind het wit tussen de tiles mooi. Ik zie het ook wel eens met zwart ertussen maar vind dat erg hard.

Fijn weekend,
Evelyne

I don't think I have seen a lovelier tile quilt ever. I do think it appropriate that a Dutch quilter will make a beautiful tile quilt, however. :)

Very nice! I started a tile quilt this year and I'm on block #4. I'll enjoy watching your progress!

You have a talent for harmony, your tile quilt reflects all your very personal style. Congratulations!

Het wordt zo mooi!! Leuk om je tulp en dat mooie hart erin te zien. Zo wordt het ook een beetje een verhaal-quilt...
Heel fijn weekend, groetjes, Ria.

Hoi, ik vind hem mooi worden en denk dat hij steeds mooier wordt naarmate hij groter wordt. Ik vind dat vrije werken ook erg leuk, zo is het altijd helemaal jouw quilt.
Groetjes

I think it's going to make a wonderful quilt so I hope you continue to work on it. I enjoy seeing the variety of your blocks. I may try one of these blocks , you make them sound fun! Happy stitching!

Phyllis said...

Prachtig! Wat een speciaal project. Denk dat we allemaal heel benieuwd zijn naar volgende blokken.

I do remember this project of yours' and often think it would be an interesting one to do. Nice to see what you have been up to.

Oh Lucy, I am so glad you are starting up again. I love your version of the tile quilt. If you Google stonewall quilts you will see one I made of really bright reproduction prints using the pot holder method. I like you version so much you have inspired me to add to my quilt and add some lighter fabrics next time. Thanks for sharing!
Wendy

Ik herinner me je tile quilt blokken van vorige blogjes.Nu ik ze hier zo bij elkaar zie liggen ben ik erg verrast door het resultaat. Prachtig!!! Héél leuk hoe je er af en toe iets herkenbaar tussen gestopt hebt. Volgens mij gaat dit een TOPquilt worden.Groetjes Liliane
