Let me show you a fun way to create unique designs that are so versatile you can use them as background fills, in borders and blocks, and as feature designs in large areas of negative space.

You will see how endless the options are when you discover how many creative options you have. You can choose to have “grout” lines between your tiles if you like (or not), and then decide if you will quilt them, leave them un-quilted, or fill them with a design. All of these creative options allow you to determine the textural effects your design will provide.
