My favorite crochet project is the Hand Painted Tiles Cushion. It is stunning!
These are not just regular crochet afghan squares and granny squares. The crochet tile patterns included are fun and unique. I especially love the variety of motifs that use colorwork, mosaic crochet and overlay crochet techniques.
I am very impressed by the quality of 100 Crochet Tiles and the wide selection of original crochet patterns that were curated for the collection. If I had not been given a free copy of the book to review, I would purchase this book for my crochet bookshelf.
