The Designers

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.

  1. Such a gorgeous book!! So many ideas and the look of every tile is so beautiful.
    Thanks for the review!

  2. Hi Terri, I honestly don’t know if any of these have been previously published – I know when I contributed to a book for publishing (not this one) my patterns had to be original and not published anywhere else (ever) and I sold my rights to the publisher once I submitted the pattern to them. I am not sure if this is the case here though as it might vary from publisher to publisher. Sorry I can’t be of much help on this question! All the best, Rhondda

  3. Have any of the designs been previously published? I must have well, quite a few designs already purchased (individually, in print and online) and would like to know if these in this book are new, previously unpublished designs. TIA for your help!

  4. I loved reading your review. I know I would love making the tiles in this book. Always looking for something new to test my skills.

  5. Thanks for the giveaway. I’m sure the book 350+ Crochet Tips, Techniques & Trade Secrets has things I don’t know about crochet.

  6. I really like the one in the cover lower left that looks like a purple star flower with teal green

  7. I would love to try making every single square. I’m always up for a challenge. The 100 crochet tiles would make a beautiful quilt appearance. The pillow sample catches the eye. I finally conquered amigurami doing it for Wings donation through Roselikescrochet

  8. This book of crochet tiles looks so interesting. I would love to use my imagination on what to make with them. Good Luck Everyone !!!

  9. I would love for you to review, AMIGURUMI FARMYARD. I love farm animals!!!!

  10. You should definitely review the book Viking Knits from Bookmarked, it looks so cool!

  11. I am always eager to learn new stitches and patterns and this book looks like it will do both.

  12. I would be very interested in the 100 crochet tiles book…..so many possibilities & subsequent crochet throws, pillows &/ rugs…endless.
