I designed this runner after reading Tile Quilt Revival by Carol Gilham Jones and Bobbi Finley. If you haven't read the book, I recommend it. They give the history of the tile quilt, tell you how to design your own pattern, and include patterns.
The tile quilt is perfect for showcasing the big, modern prints that catch our eye, but leave us stumped. Smaller prints work just as well and let you see the design of the applique pieces. Speaking of applique, it is not my forte. But the simplicity of the tile quilt makes applique much less scary. For Bohemian Tile, I used the light Heat & Bond or Wonder Under and then used a straight stitch inside the perimeter of each shape. No tucking under or satin stitch. For a larger quilt, or one that will get a lot of wear, I would probably not use this raw edge technique. This runner uses 6 fat quarters.
