A tribute to Minton Tiles, this range of patterns is based on the many tiled floors, paths and doorsteps both locally and found on our wider travels. They will vary from table runners to bed-size quilts but you can always adapt the pattern to suit your needs. Although on the whole we have done all our diagrams in the original tile colours we have found that the patterns lend themselves very well to being reproduced in a variety of fabrics and colours. Most of the patterns will include a photo of the original tiles, although sometimes we were only able to make a quick sketch. You will find further details about each pattern on the Meadowside blog, and occasionally on the Chris and Barbara blog.
Our first pattern was first done as a Mystery quilt at a Chris and Barbara workshop in 2015. Our students had great fun making it in a variety of fabrics and colours. It is based on a local doorstep and will measure 38 x 20 inches. The pattern includes an optional extra border which will make a small lap quilt measuring 45 x 27 inches. The pattern is available from Payhip for £4.
This bed size quilt is based on a black and white tiled floor. It has an intricate border design which could be replaced with a suitable print. The pattern has full step-by-step photos and some ideas for other colourways. The finished size is 82 inches square and the pattern is available from Craftsy for about £8 (depending on the dollar exchange). And sorry the photo is on its side - can't seem to get it right way up!
