TILE PUZZLE QUILT

The tile puzzle quilt block is a lovely quilt block, having lots of sections appearing to go under and over each other.  To me it really does raise images of a tiled floor.  I have made this as an 18″ block and used four of them to make the lap quilt. The quilt requires about 1 yard of brown fabric, just over 1/4 yard of yellow and 3/4 yard of white fabric.

 

Cutting requirements

2.7/8″ squares:  thirty two in both brown and white, eight in both yellow and white

2.1/2″ squares: eighty four white, forty yellow, ninety six brown

two brown 2.1/2″ strips 36.1/2″ long and two 40.1/2″ long for the quilt border

Making the quilt

All the 2.7/8″ squares are used to make half square triangles.  Place two squares with right sides together and mark a line along the diagonal.  Sew a 1/4″ seam either side of the marked line and cut along the line.  This produces two half squae triangle units.

The squares are laid out in nine rows of nine squares.  The top three rows are shown here, the left hand photo showing the individual rows and the right hand photo showing them sewn together.

The final three rows are the same as the first three rows.  The complete block is shown.   Make four of these tile puzzle quilt blocks.  Sew them together in pairs and then sew the pairs of blocks together.

For the quilt border sew a 36.1/2″ by 2.1/2″ brown strip to the top and bottom of the quilt and then sew a 40.1/2″ strip to each side.  The tile puzzle quilt top is now complete and ready for layering, quilting and binding.  These steps are given in detail in the learn to quilt section.
