Antique Tile and Nancy Cabot
As I wrap up work on more UFOs (hopefully to share with you soon!), I am letting myself cut into new projects with much less guilt. This week I added a few more fabrics to one of the stacks I posted last month.
And added in those adorable typewriters from Melody Miller's Ruby Star Shining line.
This block is actually a traditional design called Antique Tile by Nancy Cabot. Some of you probably know that I have a weird obsession interest in Nancy Cabot. I don't know why, but it seems that so many times when I see a traditional block I think would look great in a modern quilt, it's by Nancy Cabot. It's also cool that she was from Chicago and wrote a column for the Chicago Tribune...fun to think of someone like her so close to where I live. Anyway, I like her so much that I made a Flickr group called Nancy Cabot Made Modern full of blocks attributed to her.
I really love this Antique Tile block, and it was quite simple to figure out the dimensions. I've posted the sizes to cut below for you to create a 12.5" unfinished block. If you make any of these blocks, be sure to post them to the Fresh Lemons Flickr group as well as the Nancy Cabot Made Modern group!
