Tile Tuesday

Tile Tuesday

Sadly neglected and possibly unappreciated – the fate of many tiled floors.  Barbara spotted this particular example several years ago in a front garden in Eastbourne.  An  unusually complex design for a garden path, perhaps making a statement of status at the time, we felt it was a very deserving addition to our collection of tile-inspired patterns.                           

What a handsome quilt this would make! Chris is still working on the pattern for the quilt but in the meantime there is a pattern to make a runner based on this path – with a somewhat smaller, simplified border – available from our Payhip shop or you read about it here.

We do love Minton tiles!  Above is an EQ interpretation of a tiled doorstep in the immediate neighbourhood of C&B Towers – this would make an eye-catching table runner in any colour scheme.  Chris has written a pattern which can be found over at our sister site  Meadowside Designs (payhip.com/meadowsidedesigns).

And here’s the doorstep itself –

Following on from last week’s post featuring Minton tiles here’s another Minton tiled floor in it’s original domestic setting.  This one was spotted in Lichfield, Staffs – with some difficulty as it was hiding in an estate agent’s window there. Not terribly exciting in this picture and not terribly visible either.

But from this image (and a trusty notebook/pencil combination, followed by EQ7) Chris was able to draft a pattern and produce a quilt which we think is rather handsome.  Barbara is currently resisting the urge to cut up fabric and dive right in to this project – and, as we know, resistance is sometimes futile!

The pattern for this Lichfield quilt can be found over in our Meadowside Designs shop.

No surprise then that we now have a goodly collection of tiled floor images sourced from house sale particulars!
