July challenge - Tiles

This month's teacher is Angela Walters, her well written tutorial is all about putting filler designs in tiles.  This technique adds lovely texture to a quilt.
I used my Pfaff Creative 2 with a Schmetz 80/12 universal needle and rainbow 100% polyester variegated thread.
The top side is 100% cotton sheet, batting is warm and natural 80% cotton and 20% polyester and the backing is 100% cotton pink flanelette.
The filler design is simple curves.  I used the same filler design in all the tiles and varied the shape of the tiles.
 I added some zig zags and a partial circle tile.
 This design is fun to quilt.
The back side looks really cool.
I have a bran new great nephew born July 1, 2012.  Perhaps I use this tile design on his quilt.
