City Tiles Quilt

I've mentioned my love of Instagram before and I've really found some amazing quilters there and tons of inspiration. One of them is Emily Dennis who blogs at Quilty Love. Emily is just one of those people whose style I really connect with. Clean, modern, and a bit traditional all at the same time.

My most recent finish is one of Emily's patterns called City Tiles. I love the simple graphic design and thought it would be perfect to showcase the gorgeous line called Lavish by Katarina Roccella.


I used an Art Gallery solid called Icy Mint for the background and had a hard time photographing this beautiful color. It really is pretty and a nice, fresh neutral for this colorful line.

It's quilted with straight lines 1" apart and backed in one of the great prints from the line. The binding is a pretty, and dark floral.





It is such a great pattern! And super easy to follow. I'm actually working on another of Emily's patterns right now called Triangle Hexies Quilt. It's another goodie!

  8. The backing, binding and background are all perfect. And I definitely agree that Emily is amazing and her patterns are gorgeous. You still managed to Cindy-fy it though with your choice of fabrics - perfect as always.
