Quilts Beneath Your Feet

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.

Doorstep Runner

doorsteprunnerOur 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.
