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.

great job Tammy! I was amazed at hopw quickly this design filled in an area. I like how you mixed it up with zigzags and partial circles

Thanks, I really enjoyed the tile design. The possibilities are endless, one can vary the tile shapes, filler designs or both. Such great fun!

Ok that looks awesome. You've inspired me to get started on mine. I LOVE the non square addition to the design.
