Empress Tiles

Last year I taught at the York Heritage Quilters Guild in Toronto and one of the classes was my original design, Empress Tiles. This project is in my book Fat Quarter Frenzy (AQS) and was inspired by floor tiles at the Empress Hotel here in Victoria, BC.

One of my students, Tracey Lawko sent me a picture of her finished project. She used some of her collection of African fabrics and a wonderful border print. I think you'll agree that it is a beautiful quilt. Tracey had worked at the Empress Hotel and so had a personal connection with the design and concept. Thank you, Tracey!
