A Quilt to Celebrate a Monotile

Published by


Image of monotile quilt. 12 tiles place together with 4 different materials on a black background. materials are grey polkadot, grey with butterfly, solid tan, and yellow with leaves

An Aperiodic Monotile was published this week (details are here). To celebrate, I made a quilt with my mom with some occasional kitty input.

I put together a quick slideshow of the process (not super detailed, but it will give you the gist of it). Preview of it is below:

    Did you have to hand sew the hexagons together?

      I used a machine, but you could. Y seams are tough.

    WOW! Of course as a quilter (and knitter) my brain went to piecing right away. Love your results. Im trying to imagine the challenge of seaming. Great job!!

    And then there’s the article! As smart as they are and they confuse the hand arts. What about that says “knitted” to them? 😉😳🙄

      I laughed about that- I knit, I quilt, but what would I actually call a knitted quilt?

      Thanks- I’m hoping to grow my tolerance for y-seams someday.

    Well done! I especially love that you and your Mom were able to share this project, and, of course, kitty! What a fun way to explore this new discovery, learn a new skill, and create a wonderful piece! Thanks so much for the slide show!! I’ll bet folks don’t realize how much goes into a piece like this. The slide show really demonstrates all of the work! Enjoy!

    English Paper Piecing is a hand sewing technique that traditionally uses hexagons. This would easily lend itself to it.
