Brandy Wine - 12/5/09

It looked like something I've been thinking about since seeing these curtains on the Anthropologie website. I have been thinking about making them since the summer but, just never had the energy. My next thought was to make a quilt using the same idea because I do not have good warm blankets. Well, I only have one. When I saw the Anthropologie curtain I knew immediately where the motifs came from. I have two books with them inside. The Tile Quilt Revival book took my idea to another thought because it suggests drawing a picture, cutting out the different shapes and leaving space between them. C&T has it so you can see a preview of the book. If you are in the market for a new reference book I recommend this book. I like to work with large pieces which is why the Anthropologie curtain appealed to me. I put it all together and came up with this. (Brandy Wine, 12/5/09)

Jones and Finley are bringing back an old technique in Tile Quilt Revival. Applique is placed, leaving margins between the pieces like tile grout or stained glass. Think needle-turn applique or simple fusing. Lots of potential here. (American Quilt Retailer, January 1, 2010)

These beautiful pieces have a stained-glass look, but lighter and airier. Construction-wise, instead of leading applied over the raw edges of the shapes, these shapes are finished with turned edges, and the background is left exposed to create the spaces between shapes. Tile Quilt Revival: Reinventing a Forgotten Form is Carol and Bobbi's fascinating, educational, and inviting book that reintroduces this unique and somewhat obscure form of applique quilt. Tile quilts are explained this way: Traditional tile quilts. are constructed with small pieces of cotton fabric appliqued in a random manner to a white background, leaving a narrow space between the pieces; this white space serves as the grout between the tiles or mortar between the pavers or stones. The books starts out with a brief history of tile quilts, with great photos showing examples from the past. Then comes a section on how to make a tile quilt, reinterpreted for today. When I read the following, the heavens opened up and I heard the heavenly choir! The tile quilt technique, with its large and simple shapes, creates an ideal showcase for bold, contemporary fabrics. Interesting, large-scale prints are will suited for the tile pieces. If you've ever found yourself admiring some of the daring prints now available but wondering how to use them, a tile quilt is an idea project for putting them to good use. Hallelujah! I have a tub of fabrics in my stash labeled Modern that has been. well. sitting there. Now my daring prints have a destiny! The techniques used in the book are so simple they're ingenious! No need to consider seam allowances, to reverse patterns, or to figure out where to place the pieces. Another really great thing about this book is that it has fantastic applique instructions. needle-turn by hand, turned-edge machine-applique and fusible machine applique too, all expertly explained and illustrated. (All About Applique, March 3, 2010)

Tile Quilt Revival by by Carol Gilham Jones & Bobbi Finley. I've always been drawn to murals made out of tiles and this quilt book is right there to satisfy my predeliction for them. This type of quilt was popular in the 19th Century. The ones in the book use contemporary fabrics to modernize this charming quilting tradition that I was not aware of. Oh, I've seen some quilts that look like mosaics, but these look more like tile when you browse the 6 projects they include. I look forward to making a tile quilt in the near future. If you've seen one or two, tell me about it. I'd like to learn more about these beauties. (A Quilting Reader's Garden, April 2, 2010)

Format: Paperback
Tile Quilt Revival: Reinventing a Forgotten Form is Carol Gilham Jones and Bobbi Finley's fascinating, educational, and inviting book that reintroduces this "unique and somewhat obscure" form of appliqué quilt.

Tile quilts are explained this way:

"Traditional tile quilts... are constructed with small pieces of cotton fabric appliquéd in a random manner to a white background, leaving a narrow space between the pieces; this white space serves as the "grout" between the tiles or 'mortar' between the pavers or stones."

The books starts out with a brief history of tile quilts, with great photos showing examples from the past. Then comes a section on how to make a tile quilt, reinterpreted for today. When I read the following, the heavens opened up and I heard the heavenly choir!

"The tile quilt technique, with its large and simple shapes, creates an ideal showcase for bold, contemporary fabrics. Interesting, large-scale prints are will suited for the tile pieces. If you've ever found yourself admiring some of the daring prints now available but wondering how to use them, a tile quilt is an idea project for putting them to good use."

Hallelujah! I have a tub of fabrics in my stash labeled "Modern" that has been... well... sitting there. Now my "daring" prints have a destiny!

The techniques used in the book are so simple they're ingenious! No need to consider seam allowances, to reverse patterns, or to figure out where to place the pieces. Another really great thing about this book is that it has fantastic appliqué instructions... needle-turn by hand, turned-edge machine-appliqué and fusible machine appliqué too, all expertly explained and illustrated.

Format: Paperback
Tile Quilt Revival is a 'must' for any quilter's collection because it reinvents a nearly forgotten quilting form, and won't be seen in every quilter's guide. It offers 6 projects teaching about design and construction of tile quilts modern and traditional, including a history of the quilts, a photo gallery, and tips for using a favorite applique method to achieve them. Large-size patterns in back make this a fine choice for quilters seeking something different.

I had seen an antique quilt made in this fashion, and was fascinated by the technique. Of course I could not really recall the details, until I saw the availability of this book.
Finally something "new and original"... Well written and clear explanation and instructions.

This book is really beautiful, and it contains some nice ideas. The cover quilt is the reason I bought it, and it will be a great way to use up scraps. The instructions are clear, and the photos are lovely.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is wonderful. Full of history as well as technique and patterns. It is a must for all applique folks who want something new/old. I am using this technique in my current quilt. I only gave it a four because the patterns are 10 inch by 10 inch which required special photo copying at a local copy shop since a standard printer/scanner page is 8x11. Since I live in a small country town it was quite expensive to have them enlarged to a larger 12 x 12 size. Small town copy shop rates are outrageous! Anyway, it would have been nicer to have had these on a CD and then I could have worked them to the desired size I needed in my photo software and printed them accordingly.

Format: Paperback
Carol and Bobbi's book "Tile Quilt Revival" contains 6 projects that teach you about designing and constructing various styles of tile quilts, from traditional to contemporary. Including full size patterns for the "Lotus" quilt seen on the cover of the book. The history of the Tile quilt is fascinating and you will enjoy the photo galleries of both historic and contemporary quilt.
