    It is good to see a pillow with your quilt. When I make a quilt, I try to make a pillow sham to go with it from the leftovers. Its worth it to me.

    There's been a couple of question re: the floor.
    It was fairly easy.

    The original plan was to be with random tiles, but I got this bright idea to quilt my floor. I pulled out my books to look for a simple block pattern that would not require a lot of cuts, and came up with the pinwheel, the design was all based on how many tiles we had available. (Sound familiar - how much fabric do I have - lol). We didn't have enough of 1 style of tile and there was not much money available to go buy a whole bunch more.(not on sale - $12.00 a box reg. price).The floor was a yucky brown shag carpet, I say from the 70's but I'm not sure on date. I was having problems with keeping it clean, what with tiny kittens and Chihuahua puppies, so we decided to pull it all up. Underneath it was concrete, not very smooth but works for a flat surface as you can see.



    1)We had to figure out the square footage of the floor(quilt)and working with 12" tiles(blocks) and then the placement of the tiles- centered or off set, we decided centered. 2)Then we cut the tiles so that we would have enough to work with. Just like a quilt.



    DH & friend thought I was nuts to want to quilt the floor, they couldn't quite see the picture. But I cut the tile with a straight edge razor, using my quilting ruler :-), and showed them what I wanted to do. With this type of tile, it is peel and stick, we had to put down additional adhesive, very thin coat other wise it oooozes out between the seams. The reason for this is so that it would stay down, out here there is a lots of dust and to get the floor clean we would have had to mop it and then wait for it to dry, then maybe seal it, cost too much money!!! to do all that. So we started in the center of the room, marked center with a pencil, applied adhesive, wait to get tacky, peel paper off the back of tile and stuck it DOWN!!

    All your quilts are beautiful..and your floor is captivating. Did you custom paint this, or tile it in this manner.
