This quilt was inspired by American tile quilts of the '30s and '40s. The center is made entirely from small pieces of fabric left over from quilting. The shapes in the border came from the shapes of these scraps. A number of tile quilts have appeared in quilting magazines within the last few years, but I consulted no articles or books and looked at no internet sources while making this quilt. As far as I know, it's the "child of my brain," as Harriet Powers said. Other quilters: Susan Spencer of Scotts Valley, CA, did the free-motion quilting on her longarm quilting machine.
