BFC1962 Mexican Talavera Quilt Blocks
*Talavera tile is 100% handcrafted, hand glazed, and hand painted. It has its origins in 17th century Mexico with the arrival of the Spaniards, who introduced new methods of tile and pottery making; given birth to the name: Talavera tile or pottery. The name Talavera was given to this new form of ceramics to honor the Spanish craftsmen, who were from the town of Talavera De La Reina Spain, and introduced the new industry to Mexico. Talavera De La Reina, Spain is a city which has a reputation for its exquisite ceramic pottery and tile.*
The tile is known for it's brilliant colors. I have used bright colors in these designs, but with a sheer stitch to make them appropriate for large projects like quilts. They all have a basting stitch which makes it easy to stitch the squares together. You can make many variations of arrangements!!! I've attached two screenshots of another way to join them. Though I had quilts in mind when I created these designs they would also make wonderful table toppers, placemats, borders for curtains - any project where you want embroidery and bright colors!
