Scrappy Tiles came about because I have had a layer cake of Fly a Kite by October Afternoon for Riley Blake sitting in the stash for too long (about 2 years). Riley Blake layer cakes (or whatever Riley Blake calls them) contain 28 pieces (10" x 10") versus the Moda layer cakes which have 42. While I loved the line, it always seemed that what had designed needed more than 1 Riley Blake layer cake so back into the fabric cabinet it went time and time again.
One day I took the layer cake out and designed a pattern just for it. The pattern looks like an randomly pieced tile pattern but is actually a single 12" x 12" block in a 3x4 block arrangement resulting in a toddler sized quilt (36" x 48") using essentially the whole layer cake and no background fabric (yes, no background fabric, a bit different for me). Scrappy Tiles was born.
I have started drafting a pattern for quilt but it is number 3 on the list so it might be a while before it is ready. If you are interested in testing the pattern, just let me know :)
Have a wonderful weekend!
