Tile quilt

I made some more tile blocks. I'm very inspired by these kind of quilts. There is not much written about the technique, history and the quilts. Barbara Brackman made a great post with some interesting links. In the first chapter of the book Tile revival you can find more about the history. American History wrote also an article. And look at this block. What an inspiration. I made my heart block inspired by it. I would love to see the whole quilt. Need to find out where I can find it. If you know can you tell me where I can see this quilt. Thanks!

Each block is a quilt in itself don't you think.

The blocks together looks a bit busy to me. I still don't know if I'm going to make a bed size quilt with them. In the meantime they are very addicting to make, let's see how it grows. I have ideas for more blocks. More personal, so I can make a story telling quilt of it.
