Yesterday I visited a ceramic tile and tableware store, Heath Ceramics, in San Francisco. They make custom tiles for decorative use, not for only bathrooms and kitchens. They have patterns on display as 18″ square blocks, very design wall like. These two caught my eye.
These tiles look just like the 112 triangles I have from my current quilt top that I’m working on. The Marcus fabrics Aunt Grace heart quilt, a free pattern from them, has 56 hearts made with the cut off corners technique. I’m thinking that I can use the ones from the lower edges to make a scrappy quilt.
I started the heart quilt last week as a way to use up the box (see ☝️) of 1930’s repro fabrics I have ‘collected’. These started life with the Farmers Wife’s quilt, went on to a few scrappy squares and scrappy diamonds quilts, and finally to the Simple Pleasures BOM quilt.
I fear it’s a never ending bottomless box though.

Never ending bottomless box…they are reproducing in there! 🙂
They ‘learned’ it from the many other collections LOL
love all the green sashing on the last piece and fabulous quilting!
Thank you, I was hesitant to use it, but all those blocks needed something to rest on. Its my favorite spring time quilt, I need to put it out soon
