Isn't it funny how you can go a long time--even years--without thinking of a particular thing or quilt pattern and then suddenly the universe throws a bunch of them at you. This is what has been happening to me with tile quilts.
Every time I think of abstract tile work, I can't help remember the movie How to Make An American Quilt and Gladys' ceramic room. In a fit of emotion, she broke a lot of ceramics and then adhered them to the wall. At the end of the movie, she forgives her sister and husband and breaks down the wall.
