Tile Quilt?? For many of you this will be a new antique quilt style. Tile quilts are generally appliqued onto a background with space showing between patches like grout around ceramic tiles. They are fairly rare/uncommon. This beauty is from the New England Quilt Museum. Circa 1885
My favorite is this block with a cat highlighted in the center of the block and surrounded by a bird, a good luck horseshoe, a rooster, and a sunflower.
The decorated fan is lovely.
I think this owl and butterfly are fussy cut out of a period crazy quilt cheater print.And the fan and several Asian scenes another strong clue to the 1880s date.
